What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is defined as an error on the part of health-care providers that results in an injury to a patient. Doctors, nurses, or another hospital employee can cause the injury. Medical negligence is another term for malpractice. To prove negligence, you must show the medical provider violated the accepted standard of care. You must also prove that this specific violation resulted in serious harm to the patient. In other words, malpractice occurs when a medical care provider fails to provide care within the requisite standard of care, which leads to injury or death.
It is important to note, however, that a poor outcome or surgical complication does not necessarily mean that medical care provider was negligent. Our medical malpractice attorneys can help you determine if your health care provider did not provide acceptable care or if medical mistakes occurred.
When an unexpected death, brain injury, paralysis, loss of limb, or some other type of catastrophic injury occurs under medical care, a thorough investigation should take place. Of course, someone with health care professional negligence case experience should handle the investigation.
Tittle & Perlmuter has that experience. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one as a result of doctor error, call Tittle & Perlmuter. Our experienced attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for their clients and will pursue every dollar of compensation you deserve for your medical negligence case.

How Hard is it to Prove a Medical Malpractice Case?
Courts for Medical Malpractice Cases
1200 Ontario St., Cleveland, OH 44113
This court is located in the Justice Center in downtown Cleveland. The court advises you to allow for extra time to find parking because it is limited in the area. The Huntington Parking Garage is close, but pricey for a day of parking. A more affordable option is the WareHouse District Parking closer to the Flats, but you’ll have to walk a few blocks. Another option to get to the court is to take the Rapid and avoid a downtown parking cost altogether. The hours of the court are Monday – Friday from 8:30 – 4:30. If you have any questions for the court, call 216-443-8560.
