Ohio surgeon mistakes: Leaving foreign objects in patient bodies

If you're like most Ohio residents, at some point in your life, you've probably experienced a stomach ache. Perhaps you became bloated and were unsure what was causing your discomfort. Was it something you ate, or did you have an underlying health condition that was presenting adverse symptoms?  

Understanding common medical mistakes could protect you from harm

When you seek medical treatment in Ohio, you no doubt hope and expect that doctors will be able to correctly diagnose your condition and recommend and implement appropriate treatment to obtain as full a recovery as possible. Sometimes, medication is all that's needed to fight an infection, while other times, conditions may warrant surgery.  

LV Obtains Largest Personal Injury Verdict in Ohio History

On September 28, 2018, Gerald Leeseberg and the trial team at Leeseberg & Valentine obtained a $44.5 million verdict on behalf of Bradley Metts and his family. It is believed to be the largest verdict in Ohio history compensating an individual for injuries caused by negligent conduct. Bradley, who is now 14 years old, was injured when Athens Medical Lab failed to timely return stat laboratory blood tests causing a delay in diagnosis, which allowed a rare infection to progress from his ear to his brain. This infection caused significant pressure to build up in his head and resulted in a catastrophic brain injury. While Bradley is still cognitively intact and able to communicate, he is completely paralyzed and has no voluntary movements of any muscles other than those in his face and eyes - a condition known as "locked-in syndrome". Bradley requires 24/7/365 nursing care and this verdict will go a long way in helping him obtain the care he needs to keep him safe and thrive.
