Can I File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit for PTSD?

You can file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Ohio for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Attorney Chris Mellino welcomes you to contact our Cleveland office for a free consultation. During that meeting, we’ll answer any questions you may have and determine whether you have a claim worth pursuing. The amount of damages you can pursue varies and depends on the situation and severity of your case.

Determining the financial value (referred to as “non-economic damages”) of injuries such as the amount of pain and emotional trauma experienced can be difficult. Since there is no set formula to establish that amount, the following factors are considered:

  • the effects of the malpractice on the person’s health and well-being (i.e., disfigurement, illness, paralysis, emotional pain and suffering such as PTSD);
  • how these effects have hindered the victim’s ability to work and/or otherwise enjoy a normal life; and
  • what physical and/or emotional needs must be met in the future.

No matter what type of damages you seek, malpractice lawsuits can be complex and confusing. An attorney can help review records and gather other evidence; consult experts to testify on your behalf; and calculate damages, lost wages, and future rehabilitation expenses to ensure that you are awarded the highest amount possible.

If you have a question about medical malpractice, attorney Chris Mellino invites you to contact our office for a free consultation. You may also download or request our free guide to filing a claim in Ohio.
