I’VE BEEN HURT IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT. WHAT COMPENSATION AM I ENTITLED TO?
If you have been injured in an automobile, motorcycle or trucking accident due to the negligence of another driver in Ohio, you have the right to be fairly compensated for your injuries caused by that other driver’s negligence. As an Ohio automobile accident victim, you are entitled to be compensated for your economic loss due to the accident, which includes your medical bills, lost time from work, and damage to your automobile and property, as well as any other loss that has cost you money, such as funeral and burial expenses in the case of death due to the automobile accident. You are also entitled to be compensated for your non-economic loss, which includes your pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life. In addition, if you have been severely injured (i.e. loss of limb, paralysis, serious disfigurement, etc.) your spouse and children may be entitled to compensation for your injuries if they have suffered a loss of your services, companionship, love, affection, guidance, etc.
