Were you injured in an accident? You are not alone. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that Americans may have around 35 million injury-related emergency room visits on an annual basis. A serious accident can wreak havoc on your life. You could be left with stacks of medical bills and other losses. What compensation can you get? In this article, our Toledo personal injury attorneys provide an overview of the financial losses that you can include in your claim.
In a personal injury claim, you may be able to seek compensation for financial losses that you have incurred as a result of the accident. You can hold the at-fault party legally responsible for related losses. Indeed, Ohio state law allows injured victims to pursue a claim for the full extent of their damages. These losses can be broken down into two broad categories:
In Ohio, a civil personal injury claim is generally “compensatory” in nature. What that means is that your settlement or verdict will include compensation for the actual economic and non-economic damages that you sustained. It is crucial that your damages are well-documented. Defendants and insurers want to resolve personal injury liability for less.
Without well-documented damages, it will be challenging to secure the full and fair compensation that you deserve under the law. Beyond identifying defendants and proving liability, an experienced Toledo, OH, personal injury lawyer can also help you build a strong case to establish the full extent of your damages so that you can maximize your financial recovery.
