Ohio Medical Malpractice Laws

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider (e.g. doctor, nurse, surgeon, hospital) injures a patient during the course of a treatment. In order to file a medical malpractice claim, the medical professional’s actions need to represent a breach, or violation, of the standard of care.

Our firm handles the following types of medical malpractice cases:

  • Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis
  • Negligence affecting childbirth and pregnancy
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Medical product liability

In Ohio, an individual has one year from when he/she discovers or should have reasonably discovered the injury. Moreover, a patient has—at most—four years from the date of the action that caused the injury to file a lawsuit.

Any medical malpractice lawsuit filed in Ohio court must be accompanied by an “Affidavit of Merit.” In this filing, a licensed medical professional declares that he/she reviewed all of the person’s records, understands the medical standard of care which applies to the patient’s treatment, determines that the standard of care was not met, and believes that the individual’s injuries were the result of such care.

Medical malpractice victims are entitled to both economic (e.g. past and future medical care, lost wages, other financial losses) and noneconomic damages (e.g. pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, or emotional distress). However, due to the caps on noneconomic damages, such an award cannot exceed more than $250,000 or three times the plaintiff’s economic damages—with a total of up to $350,000 per plaintiff or $500,000 for each case.
