What Damages Can Personal Injury Victims Recover?
In many personal injury cases, victims are able to recover compensation for their injuries, including their physical, financial, and mental/emotional injuries. Depending on the nature of your case, you may be able to recover:
Economic damages are monetary damages with a verifiable dollar amount, like your medical expenses. Your economic expenses can be verified with receipts, statements, invoices, and similar documents. Some examples of economic damages are:
- Medical expenses you currently have and may have in the future
- Future care costs, such as the cost of in-home living assistance
- The costs of any of your property that was damaged or destroyed due to the incident
- Wages and benefits you’ve lost and may lose in the future due to your injuries
- Other tangible losses
These damages don’t have a dollar amount, but an attorney from our firm can attribute a monetary value to them so you can be compensated for them. Your non-economic damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental/emotional pain
- Permanent injury
- Disability or disfigurement
- Other intangible losses supported by your case evidence
Wrongful Death Damages
You may have lost a family member due to an accident. If this happened to you and your family, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against the other party. If you or another family member is given compensation, it may cover economic and non-economic damages like:
- Any medical expenses the decedent had
- Funeral and cremation/burial costs
- The loss of the decedent’s income for the household
- Loss of consortium
- Mental/emotional suffering you’ve endured
How Much Compensation Could I Recover in My Personal Injury Case?
The amount of compensation you could recover depends on the nature and severity of your injuries and other losses. During a free initial consultation, a member of our team will help you determine which damages you can claim and how much your case may be worth.
Your Personal Injury Lawyer Will Manage Your Case for You
After you hire one of our attorneys, you can count on them to manage everything about your case so you can focus on your recovery and any family matters. You’ll be able to leave legal and financial matters in the hands of your attorney. Your attorney will:
- Manage the little details: This includes communicating with the other party on your behalf, handling the legal paperwork, and updating you on progress throughout your case.
- Investigate your case: To build your case, your attorney will seek out and examine evidence, including the initial incident report, any witness statements, your medical reports, and any photos or videos of the incident or scene.
- Consult with experts: To bolster your case, your lawyer can get statements from experts, such as an accident reconstructionist, a workplace safety officer, and/or a medical professional.
- Negotiate with the other party: Your lawyer’s goal will be to settle your case with the other party, but if they aren’t willing to compromise, your lawyer will argue your case with a court instead.
- File your claim or lawsuit: Your lawyer will also take care of the filing process in your claim or lawsuit.
Proving the Other Party’s Liability
To prove the other party involved in your accident is responsible for the incident and your injuries, your lawyer will have to establish the party’s negligence. Establishing negligence entails showing that:
- The party owed you a duty of care (a responsibility to act in a way that prevents harm to others).
- The party breached (failed in) their duty of care.
- You suffered injuries as a result.
- You suffered damages as a result of your injuries.
Establishing negligence can be difficult for a plaintiff, but a personal injury lawyer is adept at it. For this reason, you may decide you need a lawyer.
Meeting the Deadline for Your Case
According to Ohio law, personal injury plaintiffs have a limited time to file any kind of lawsuit after their incident. Per Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, plaintiffs have two years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. To file a wrongful death lawsuit, plaintiffs also have two years from the date of an incident, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
If you don’t file your lawsuit within the respective timeline, your case may be dismissed and you may not be able to recover any compensation at all. A lawyer from our firm will help you meet your filing deadline.
