Physicians of the Akron Women’s Medical Group are challenging the medical malpractice suit filed by 22 year-old Ariel Knights of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, which accused the clinic’s doctors of negligence and ineffectively recommending that she get an abortion so that she can recover from a serious medical condition.
Knight said a doctor of the clinic advised her to have an abortion in March 2012, saying it would be beneficial to her health.
The doctors of the clinic, however, denied that they had committed any form of negligence, and said that some of Knight’s claims had already lapsed under the three-year statute of limitations, or allowable time period of prosecution, for medical malpractice.
Unfortunately, the negligent actions of medical professionals do often lead to the serious harm of innocent patients. If this has happened to you, call the lawyers of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, at 513-321-7733 and learn about how we may be able to help you.
