Cincinnati Medical Malpractice Defense Lawyers
In few cases are the stakes higher financially, professionally and emotionally than in a medical malpractice lawsuit. These cases often involve damage claims of a million dollars or more. For the doctor, his or her professional reputation may be at stake. For these reasons, medical malpractice lawsuits rarely settle. If you are accused of medical negligence, your case is likely to go to trial.
At Lindhorst & Dreidame, our lawyers have been defending doctors against claims of medical negligence since the 1960s. No law firm in Ohio has handled as many medical malpractice defense jury trials as we have. Our attorneys are known not just for their trial results but for their ability to make law when it comes to personal injury defense. Attorney Michael Lyon has more than 65 reported decisions in the Ohio court of appeal.
We handle all types of medical malpractice claims involving physicians, including:
- Birth injury cases, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, hypoxia and delayed Cesarean section
- Surgical errors
- Emergency room errors
- Anesthesia areas
- Wrongful death claims
- Misdiagnosis of cancer and other diseases
- Radiology errors
In addition to medical malpractice lawsuits, we represent doctors in disciplinary proceedings before the Ohio State Medical Board.
We represent doctors only – never hospitals. Your interests and the interests of a hospital may not be the same in a medical malpractice case. To ensure that our lawyers have no conflicts of interest, we limit our medical negligence practice to the representation of physicians. From our office in Cincinnati, we represent doctors throughout southwest Ohio and northern Kentucky.
