$25,000 is the jurisdictional amount you need to plead in your complaint to get your case into an Ohio Court of Common Pleas. Almost every complaint filed in Ohio uses that exact language, because people don't want to try their cases in municipal courts. You don't need to show economic damages in excess of that amount, either.
Edit: You can also settle for less than $25,000 with no adverse consequences, and this happens quite often. Believe me, it takes more than a contusion on your arm to ring the 25k bell.

The path you tread is narrow, and the drop is sheer and very high.
