How to Find Out if Your Doctor Has Been Sued for Medical Malpractice in Ohio

When looking for a new doctor, it’s important to choose someone you trust. In addition to collecting recommendations from friends and family, it’s also a good idea to see if the doctor you’re considering has been sued for medical malpractice.

Other tips to learning whether a healthcare provider has been named a liable party in a lawsuit include:

  • calling the county clerk’s office where the physician practices;
  • calling the state licensing medical board;
  • calling the state insurance department; and
  • searching www.docboard.org for your potential physician.

It’s not uncommon for a doctor who’s been in practice a long time to have been sued before, but if you see more than one case, you should probably see someone else.
