Legal Answers
Q. I had carpal tunnel surgery on December 14 2021. Since then have had two issues with infections once was hospitalized
A: Generally speaking, infection cases are rarely successful because infections are a common risk and complication of any surgery. The law requires you to prove that the medical provider's negligence caused you an injury. Just because you had a bad result, does not mean that the doctor was negligent. It is important for your medical records to be thoroughly reviewed to determine whether or not you have a meritorious case. Be sure to consult with an attorney who specializes in medical negligence cases. Ohio has a one (1) year statute of limitations for medical negligence cases. This means that you must settle your case or file a lawsuit in a court of competent jurisdiction on or before the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations. Failure to do so would bar your ability to recover.
