If you suffered a medical malpractice injury resulting in paralysis, you may have the right to seek compensation. The Fitch Law Firm LLC’s Cincinnati paralysis lawyers can help you fight for justice and financial awards. You could win a settlement or verdict to help you pay your medical bills, future care needs, loss of income, and more.
We Can Help You Prove Medical Malpractice
Malpractice cases allow victims to seek compensation for injuries caused by a medical professional’s negligence. Types of malpractice cases include those involving medication errors, surgical errors, missed or wrong diagnosis, and childbirth injuries.
According to Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, to win a malpractice case, you must prove:
- The health care provider in question owed you a professional duty (e.g., a doctor/patient relationship existed).
- The health care provider breached their legal duty of care.
- The breach of their legal duty resulted in your injuries.
- Your injuries resulted in damages.
The Fitch Law Firm LLC has more than 30 years of experience helping clients from Cincinnati and across Ohio seek justice for their personal injuries. We will help you obtain your medical records, provide proof of your losses, file a malpractice insurance claim, and build a case showing your health care provider is liable for your paralysis.
We Can Help You Secure the Testimony of a Medical Expert
According to Ohio Rule of Civil Procedure §10(D)(2), cases involving medical malpractice require an “affidavit of merit.” This is a statement from an expert witness, usually a medical professional, stating:
- They have reviewed all available medical records in your case.
- They are familiar with the standard of care relevant to your case.
- They believe the standard of care was not met.
- The failure to meet the standard of care resulted in your injuries.
We can help you find a doctor or other health care provider who can complete this affidavit on your behalf. We can also help you seek testimony from additional medical experts and other witnesses.

You Can Recover Your Losses and Secure Compensation for Your Future Needs
How much your medical malpractice case is worth depends on a variety of factors, including the severity of your paralysis, the extent of your necessary medical treatment, and the value of your lost wages. In general, you can seek compensation for:
Past and Future Medical Care
This includes compensation for the negligent medical care that resulted in your paralysis, as well as future expenses related to treating your injuries. You could win awards to pay for medical devices, mobility aids, physical therapy, nursing care, travel expenses related to your treatment, and more.
You may lose weeks or months of wages while you are out of work due to your injuries and recovery. Your loss of mobility may mean you can no longer perform the same job you had before your injuries, or that you are unable to work again. We can help you fight for your back pay and seek compensation for your loss of future earning capacity, benefits, and the value of your lost household services.
Pain and Suffering
A paralysis injury can have a huge impact on your way of life. You may not be able to work, contribute to your household, or enjoy activities in the same way as before. Pain and suffering damages compensate victims for the reductions in their physical health, mental and emotional health, and overall quality of life.
