“I had a medical malpractice case against two large hospital systems in the Central Ohio area exponentially complicated by the newly-enacted COVID-19 laws. In spite of every attempt by the State to obstruct my rights, Cooper Elliott has been astutely fighting for and defending these rights to safe and effective medical treatment. Ben Cooper and his team have never wavered in their dedication to support, defend and litigate my case; indeed, the case for all Ohioans who have/may unfortunately contract the COVID-19 virus. Ben is an absolute stand up guy, and if you give his a chance to represent you in your case, they will defend your rights assertively and with the personal care as if you are family.”

Questions About Medical Malpractice Cases

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

Who can file a medical malpractice claim?

Our attorneys will take care of filing the legal documents required for your medical malpractice claim. From a legal perspective, though, the following parties can file a civil action for medical malpractice:

  • The victim if they are an adult with the mental capacity to do so
  • The victim’s parents if the victim is a minor
  • The person who has power of attorney for the victim if the victim is incapacitated
  • The victim’s spouse, parent, adult child, or another beneficiary if the victim is deceased

Is there a medical malpractice statute of limitations?

The statute of limitations is the deadline for bringing legal action. Each state has its own medical malpractice statute of limitations, but these laws are more than a simple number. The amount of time you have to take action may start on the date the medical malpractice occurred, when someone realized or should have realized that malpractice occurred, or when the patient last saw the doctor.

That’s why it’s important to work with lawyers specializing in medical malpractice. At Cooper Elliott, we understand the complex legal requirements involved with filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, and we know what it takes to win.

How do I know if I have a case against a doctor or hospital?

You start by talking to us. Medical malpractice lawsuits are complex cases that often involve legals teams from hospitals and insurance companies. This is not something to do on your own. Make an appointment to talk to the top medical malpractice attorneys at Cooper Elliott. During your free consultation, you can tell us what happened, then we can discuss different ways to approach your claim.

Can I file a medical malpractice claim even if I signed a consent form?

Yes. There’s no form that provides legal protection for a doctor’s negligence.

Does the case boil down to my word against theirs?

No. We interview witnesses, subpoena medical documents, and gather all the information we can to understand what happened. Then we bring in top experts in specialized medical fields who can explain how the doctor was negligent and how that negligence led to your suffering.

What can I expect in our initial consultation?

You will meet with an experienced attorney who will listen to your story and discuss the legal options available to you.

We will be honest with you about how the legal system works and possible avenues to explore to seek justice for your injuries.

Every day, we meet with people who are picking up the pieces of their life after a tragedy. We understand, and we won’t pressure you into doing anything you don’t want to do at any step in the process.

    I worked with Adam Richards and his team. They were empathetic to my situation and extremely professional. I don't know what I... would have done without their expert guidance and counsel. Adam really knows his stuff, and it was clear he had an excellent rapport with all who assisted in the case. Adam's communication abilities were next level. I never had to worry about getting ahold of him when needed. I know he and his team will continue to knock it out of the park for all future clients like they did for more

    I am so glad I found cooper Elliot. My attorneys Jon and Adam helped me through the entire process. After a traumatic experience... in my life I was confused and in pain. They worked tirelessly to become familiar with all the details of my story and represented me in a way that made me more able to process and understand the trauma myself. This was huge for me, while there’s still healing to do, I can do that work now instead of staying in a purgatory of cognitive dissonance. They didn’t just win justice for me, they are a significant part of my healing journey. They were validating, non judgmental, honest, and more

    I honestly struggle to find the words to describe how incredible this firm is, especially Jeffrey Kenny and Sean Alto. 7 years... ago, my family started a journey through a nightmare. When the criminal justice system fell woefully short, Jeff agreed to take on our incredibly challenging and lengthy case, with no other reason than that it was the right thing to do, and he believed we deserved justice. There were so many times when I would have understood if they walked away, but they refused and vowed to get us the justice we deserved, and almost 7 years later, they have given my family just that. I will never, ever, forget what they have done for us. We were never just another case. They made us feel like we were their ONLY case! Thank you will never come close to the gratitude and respect I have for Jeff and Sean, as well as for Cooper Elliott. They will be superheroes in our home, forever!read more

    Adam Richards is the best attorney I have ever met. He is responsive and very patient (I had a lot of questions) and he truly... cares. He fought hard for me and he stands up to the bully. he is not afraid to take on anyone. Anytime I hear someone who has a legal issue I go out of my way to recommend Adam. He is unlike any attorney I have ever met. He is compassionate and he always answers his phone. There is no way I would have got the results I received with any other attorney. He was a bulldog in my case and really went to bat for me. Words cant express how grateful I am to him. His actions personally affected my life in a very positive way. He protected me in so many ways I couldn't begin to name them. It is a great feeling when you know your attorney outmatches the other party's attorney and it is more
