Cleveland Medical Malpractice Laywers
Medical malpractice is defined as an injury to or death of a patient as a result of negligence by a doctor, health care professional, or health care facility. This may be caused by errors in health management, diagnosis, treatment, or follow-up care. Your medical malpractice claim should meet the following circumstances:
- You believe the standard of care was not met;
- You believe negligence was the direct cause of injury or death; and
- You believe injury or harm resulted in considerable damages.

Medical Malpractice Damages
Damages resulting from wrongful death may include funeral expenses; loss of financial support; pain and suffering; and loss of companionship, comfort, and love. We at KG Injury Law are intimately aware of these painful consequences. For that reason, our medical injury lawyers take the time to focus on client relationships as a foundation for a solid case. We invest in experts, and our persistence shows in the positive outcomes we provide for families and individuals dealing with the consequences of an injury, accident, or death.
It is important to note that there are some limitations concerning wrongful death cases.
Depending on the state you are living in, a statute of limitations may exist that could prevent any legal action two years beyond the date of the death. Once this period has passed, it may not be possible to take any legal action. Still, we will explore all paths for you and discuss your options.
Additionally, depending on each individual’s situation, there may be financial limits to what strategies you can pursue. These limitations will specifically relate to the type of damages sought, the type of lawsuit, and the relevant state law.
Notes on Wrongful Death Cases
As a subset of medical malpractice cases, there are some clear differences between general medical malpractice claims and wrongful death claims. Please keep the following in mind in terms of wrongful death claims:
- In general, the person who files a wrongful death claim is the closest relative of the person who passed (i.e., spouse, parent, or child).
- In the scenario that the next of kin cannot be identified, the executor of the passed person’s estate may file a claim.
