Ohio and Florida Hospital Malpractice Defense Lawyers

Ohio Hospital Negligence Defense Lawyers

In every medical malpractice claim, it is almost a certainty that the hospital where the events took place will be named as a defendant. A medical malpractice suit can severely damage a hospital's standing in the community. Therefore, hospitals must be ready to enlist experienced counsel to defend them against allegations of malpractice. Bonezzi Switzer Polito & Hupp Co. L.P.A. 's Medical Malpractice Group defends hospitals and other medical institutions across Northern Ohio.

Medical Malpractice Cases Can Be Won or Lost Before Trial

We are proud of our record of success defending against all types of claims, including medical malpractice claims, in trial. Achieving a successful result in trial, however, involves far more than putting forth an impressive presentation in the courtroom. Rather, getting results involves intensive planning from the initial stages of a case.

With our level of experience, we have learned a great deal about what is necessary to effectively prepare a case. Medical malpractice claims can turn on what is said by hospital staff and employees during pretrial depositions. We will exhaustively prepare every defendant and every defense witness for these depositions. Our preparation does not entail "putting words in someone's mouth." Rather, we will help every defense witness understand the questions the opposition's counsel is likely to ask and will help them answer these questions completely and effectively.

Medical malpractice claims can also be won or lost by the perceived effectiveness of expert witnesses. To that end, BSPH has access to any number of renowned experts. We put our experts through the same preparation that we would any defense witness. As a result, our experts will be ready to present accurate, complete testimony under oath in depositions and, if necessary, in trial.
