Proving Negligence · Connecting Injury

A bad medical result doesn’t always mean that medical malpractice or negligence occurred. Often, however, medical errors do occur with catastrophic results. Our Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys know the difference and what you'll need to prove to win your case.

There are two important aspects to a medical malpractice case:

  1. First, the medical provider must have violated the standard of care prevailing in his or her practice expertise—whether a doctor, surgeon, radiologist, dentist, or other practitioner.
  2. Second, the violation of the standard of care—the negligence—must have caused the injury.

You Cannot Create A Medical Negligence Case

At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, we know what it takes to win a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our attorneys have access to the most sophisticated technical and medical resources to investigate and prepare your case to win. Speaking with a Cleveland medical malpractice lawyer from our team could be one of the best decisions you make at this time.

We are highly selective in the types of medical negligence cases we bring to court. When opposing insurance attorneys see our name on the lawsuit, they know it is well conceived, carefully prepared and has the merit to be a successful court case. They know that they will face a jury unless they come prepared to discuss a full and fair settlement.

Jurors want to believe the best out of doctors, so there is a built-in prejudice against medical malpractice lawsuits. We work hard to show undeniable evidence that your personal injury or wrongful death claim is directly related to a doctor, nurse or other medical professional who failed to meet an expected level of care.
