Welcome to Gibson + O'Keefe
Our focus on obtaining just compensation for our clients has allowed us to achieve many multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements, including one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts in Montgomery County history. We know and understand how difficult it is when an individual or family member suffers a horrible tragedy or death through the fault of medical professionals. When an individual or family member is injured as a result of medical care, the medical system does not provide answers to their questions. We will get your questions answered.
We represent individuals and families who have been seriously injured or who have lost their lives as a result of medical negligence. We are dedicated to serving our clients and representing them in accordance with the highest professional standards. Our attorneys have over 40 years of combined experience in representing individuals and families dealing with the emotional and financial consequences of medical malpractice. Our firm is a preeminent medical malpractice law firm in the State of Ohio.
Our attorneys recognize that not all negative medical outcomes are the fault of medical professionals. We conduct extensive research in the medical literature as well as discuss the cases with well-qualified expert physicians in order to discover the cause of the unexpected outcome. We only take the cases that have merit and then pursue them vigorously and diligently for our clients. Our firm works with the top medical experts across the county and has medically trained support staff.
Victims of medical malpractice typically incur extraordinary expenses for medical care and treatment, especially in cases involving birth injuries such as cerebral palsy. Fortunately, all doctors and hospitals are required to carry medical liability insurance to protect their patients and compensate them when medical malpractice has occurred. Negligent medical care is a fact of life. It is a fact that preventable medical errors are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States. We are committed to providing honest answers for our clients and to hold those medical providers who caused the harm accountable. Taking action to hold negligent medical providers accountable results in improvement in overall patient care for everyone. It will prevent what happened to you or your loved one from happening to some other innocent patient.
If you or a member of your fmaily was injured due to a medial error, delay in diagnosis, a failure to manage or treat your problem, or as a result of care that was below professionally accepted medical standards, you are entitled to compensation. The time to pursue such claims is limited. As a general rule, medical malpractice claims must be filed within one year of the time when the error was discovered or should have been discovered, or one year from the termination of the doctor/patient relationship, whichever occurs later. Thus, it is imperative that if you have a question about medical care that you or a family member received, that you contact us at your earliest possible convenience so that we can provide you with an opinion as to whether or not you have a potential medical negligence claim.
