Can I File a Medical Malpractice Claim in Cleveland, Ohio, If I Wasn’t Permanently Injured?

You can file a claim even if the injuries you experienced were temporary. However, negligence that causes temporary pain, disability, or disfigurement will not add up to a significant amount of damages. A medical malpractice attorney may advise you to consider the costs of filing a lawsuit — including his or her fees — and whether it will be worth the potential amount of compensation you may recover.

On the other hand, if a healthcare provider breached the standard of care but did not cause an injury, a patient may not be able to file a lawsuit. Malpractice cases primarily seek compensation for damages. If no damages occurred, the lawsuit will more than likely be denied.
