When we put our health and medical care into the hands of a physician, surgeon or other healthcare professional, we trust that they are paying close attention to our healthcare needs and providing us with an appropriate standard of care.
Unfortunately, this does not always happen. Healthcare providers can be negligent, and medical malpractice can result in catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
The Columbus, Ohio medical malpractice lawyers at Abramson & O’Connell, LLC collectively have more than sixty years of litigation experience and have handled numerous medical malpractice lawsuits.
