Many of us do not seek treatment for dental issues when we should, often because we are afraid treatment will be painful. Unfortunately, this can cause our dental and oral health issues to get worse and become more difficult to treat.
Another problem with waiting to seek treatment is that it could affect how much compensation you are awarded in a dental malpractice lawsuit. This is because of Ohio's contributory fault law, which says you cannot recover compensation if the jury finds you to be more than 50 percent at fault for your injuries. If you wait to seek treatment, it is more likely the jury will find you partially at fault for your injuries.
Even if you have less than 50 percent of fault for your injuries, your total compensation award will be reduced by your percentage of fault. In other words, an award of $100,000 would become just $60,000 if you were 40 percent at fault.
Our Cincinnati dental malpractice lawyers understand exactly how the contributory fault law is applied to malpractice cases. We are committed to doing a thorough investigation to compile evidence so you are not assigned more fault than you deserve. We want you to receive the fair compensation you deserve.

If you have reason to believe you were a victim of dental malpractice, you should contact a Cincinnati dental malpractice attorney as soon as possible because there is a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit.
This is because of Ohio's medical malpractice statute of limitations, which is stated in Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 2305.113(C)(1). This says you cannot file any type of medical malpractice lawsuit, including a dental malpractice lawsuit, more than four years after malpractice occurred. This means you have four years from the date of malpractice to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you lose the right to file a lawsuit.
However, there is an exception to this law for situations when victims are not aware they were victims of malpractice within three years of it happening, even though they were exercising due diligence. If victims discover malpractice before the four-year statute of limitations expires, they have one year from that date to file a lawsuit, even if this one-year period goes past the four-year statute. This is stated in ORC 2305.113(D)(1).
Our Cincinnati dental malpractice attorneys have in-depth knowledge of these statutes and how they apply to your claim. This will help us to ensure your lawsuit is filed within the applicable statute of limitations.
Contact us right away to discuss your case because the deadline for filing a lawsuit can pass a lot faster than you think.
