Cleveland Medical Malpractice Lawyers

We've REcovered $600+ million for Our Clients 

Every caregiver and caregiving institution has the obligation to meet an acceptable level of medical care when treating patients. These standards of care ensure that caregivers take the necessary steps to prevent their patients from being harmed during treatment. It is considered medical malpractice when treatment plans fail to meet these standards.

Our Cleveland medical malpractice lawyers at The Becker Law Firm are relentless in their pursuit of justice, and proudly serve victims across Ohio and beyond.

How Do I Know If I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

Sadly, medical mistakes are more common than most people think. A recent study conducted by physicians at Johns Hopkins University estimates that medical errors may account for more than 250,000 deaths each year – more than accidents, strokes, Alzheimer’s, and other diseases. The easiest way to know if you have a case is to contact the Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys at The Becker Law Firm and arrange for a free initial consultation. If you suspect that you or a loved one may have been a victim of medical malpractice, please give us a call today.

Our attorneys will evaluate your case free of charge, as we believe there should be no financial obligation to learn if you have a potential claim for damages. Best of all, we take cases on a contingency basis, which means we will charge you nothing unless we win your case.

What Types of Errors Constitute Medical Malpractice?

There are many ways in which medical care can go wrong, which includes:

Patients who are harmed because of the medical care they received, and whose injuries could (and should) have been prevented, are considered to be victims of medical malpractice.


Although medical mistakes are the result of actions taken (or not taken) by caregivers, these caregivers do not operate in a vacuum. Many caregivers are part of much larger institutions that are responsible for ensuring that their staff meets and exceeds accepted levels of care.

The ways in which these institutions are managed are such that extensive training and oversight are required in order to prevent medical malpractice. Examples of three institutional settings where medical malpractice may occur include hospitals, nursing homes, and emergency rooms.

The different ways in which patients may be harmed are as numerous as the ways in which medical care can go wrong. Some of the most severe and irreparable injuries that can result from medical malpractice include wrongful death, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
