Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits in Ohio
Under Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, if you hope to recover restitution for your suffering successfully, you will need to get your personal injury claim filed before the statute of limitations expires. Generally, this is two years following the accident. However, the exact date of the statute of limitations will vary based on when your accident occurred, when you were diagnosed with your injuries and other factors.
It is also important to know that if you seek compensation for a loved one who passed away due to a fatal accident, you will instead follow the wrongful death statute of limitations under Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02. The wrongful death statute also generally allows two years for the lawsuit to be filed.
However, if your claim is not filed before the statute of limitations runs out, you will be barred from financial recovery through the Ohio civil court system. Nevertheless, you can take steps to protect your injury settlement and avoid the statute of limitations harming your case when you contact an attorney for legal help and support.
What to Expect from the Insurance Company
Dealing with the insurance company is one of the most tiring aspects of the personal injury claims process. However, because the liable party is more than likely represented by some type of insurance protection, filing a claim with their insurer may be one of the top ways to recover the compensation you deserve.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are notoriously difficult. Because they lose money paying out on claims, they are looking for every opportunity to deny your claim or reduce your compensation wherever possible.
Insurance adjusters have been known to make insultingly low settlement offers, twist claimants’ words, and argue that they are not entitled to specific types and amounts of damages. Having your personal injury lawyer step in and advocate for your rights lets you rest easier, knowing you will not be forced to settle for less than your claim is worth.
Pursuing a Personal Injury Settlement to Cover Your Losses
If you hope to get the most out of your personal injury claim, you may need to be prepared to bring your case to court. Although dealing with the insurance company is one of the top ways to recover compensation for your damages, insurance companies are only required to cover up to their policyholder’s policy limits. Therefore, if your losses exceed these limits, bringing your case before a judge may be the only way to recover maximum compensation for your suffering.
