“Few lawyers are accepting medical malpractice cases anymore in Ohio. It is hard to get a case into court, and those that make it into court are being lost at a rate of eighty percent. This is due to tort reform laws passed several years ago and an advertising campaign designed to poison the minds of jurors against medical malpractice cases. Thus, lawyers are only taking the worst and the most black-and-white cases.”
