Whether you are injured in a slip and fall accident or an automobile crash, your life will never be the same. You may be unable to work, and you may also suffer with chronic pain and physical limitations. You may find that you can no longer enjoy your hobbies, and you may even develop depression, anxiety or other post-traumatic symptoms because of the accident.
No financial settlement will erase the pain you have experienced. However, obtaining compensation from the person or organization responsible for your injuries can reduce financial concerns and make it easier for you to move on with your life.
About Personal Injury Cases in Ohio
Personal injury claims are typically filed in the state of Ohio when an individual is injured because of the wrongful action or negligence of another person or an organization. If the court finds that the defendant is responsible for the injured person’s accident, the defendant may be required to pay:
- Your medical bills
- The cost of repairs or replacement of damaged property
- Your lost wages
- Punitive damages to compensate you for pain and suffering
In some cases, you may be able to settle your claim out of court. However, in other cases, litigation will be necessary.
