What Is The Most Common Type Of Personal Injury Claim?

Personal Injury Claim

Motor vehicle accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim we handle; these claims often involve automobiles, motorcycles, semi-trucks, bicycles, pedestrians, and impaired or distracted drivers.

Serious accidents can lead to physical and property damages, medical expenses, lost wages, and other horrific outcomes. This is why motor vehicle accident attorneys work to ensure that your suffering is alleviated through the legal system.

If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is imperative to call an experienced attorney as soon as possible so that they can begin to build your case. Time is of the essence because there are ways in which clients misstep that prevent them from receiving a full settlement later. Your representation will want to begin collecting information pertaining to your medical treatment and documenting witness accounts immediately.

What Are The Types Of Personal Injury Compensation Damages?

There are two main types of compensation that the state of Ohio allows a personal injury victim to recover in a personal injury lawsuit: compensatory and punitive damages. While compensatory damages place the injured individual in the same financial state they were in before the incident, punitive damages seek to punish the responsible individual.

Recoverable damages will depend on the injury as well as the specific factors of the case. An attorney can assist in deciding which damages to pursue.

What Are Compensatory Damages?

Compensatory damages involve financial recovery and reflect the cost of the injury, care, and necessary lifestyle changes.

Compensatory damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Loss of wages
  • Treatment expenses
  • Travel expenses related to health care needs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental or emotional distress
  • Loss of companionship

What Are Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages can be used as a retributive measure in cases involving injuries due to negligent behavior. However, there is a cap on the amount of punitive damages victims may be awarded in Ohio. Punitive Damages cannot exceed twice the amount of compensatory damages or 10% of the defendant’s net worth, whichever amount is smaller.

All damages of this variety are capped at $350,000.
