Earlier this month, Gerry Leeseberg was interviewed regarding the difficulties in pursuing medical malpractice cases in Ohio by the Ohio Association for Justice, a non-profit litigation group that ensures all Ohioans have equal access to the civil justice system:
“Medical malpractice litigation is, in my opinion, the most difficult – and frustrating – of all tort litigation for the simple reason that all a defendant need do to defend such a claim is recruit an expert to opine “I do not believe the defendant fell below the accepted standard of medical care”. The readiness on the part of some defense medical experts to engage in a level of intellectual dishonesty unseen in other litigation, coupled with the general public’s willingness to “excuse” negligent medical providers, as well as the procedural and evidentiary hurdles and obstacles created specifically for the protection of negligent medical providers is unparalleled. It takes a special determination to pursue such claims, but the satisfaction of helping the victims of negligent medical care makes it worth the battle.”
