Obtaining The Compensation You Deserve After Medical Negligence

Medical negligence is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. The law states that victims of medical negligence should be made whole. For many, however, that is not the reality. The lawyer you select to represent you in these matters will have a real and lasting impact on your future.

For more than 25 years, attorney Michael B. Pasternak has been fighting against the odds to help those throughout Ohio who have been harmed by medical malpractice. His skill, his tenacity and his dedication to excellence have helped him secure life-changing results for his clients.

Case Study: A Hole In The Head That Would Not Heal

Michael's client was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor that had eroded part of his skull. Surgery was required to remove the tumor and replace the damaged skull with an artificial substitute.

A medical device company representative advised the neurosurgeon on the appropriate product to use to repair the skull — but the chosen device was inappropriate. The product disintegrated, leaving the man with a hole in his skull and requiring six procedures to repair the mistake.

Litigation took years, but Michael did not back down. His perseverance led to a verdict of $1.75 million. After prejudgment and post-judgment interest was added, the award increased to $2 million.

Monetary awards don't undo the damage caused by medical malpractice. But money can alleviate present and future financial burdens for injured parties and their families.
