Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers

Helping Victims Seek the Justice They Deserve

An accident can change your life in an instant. You might have sustained bodily injury, pain and suffering, and emotional distress, which may result in steep medical bills, loss of income, or an inability to enjoy the things you once did. If your accident was caused by the reckless actions or negligence of another, you may be entitled to initiate a personal injury claim or lawsuit to seek compensation for the harm you suffered. And while no amount of money can erase your experience, it can help relieve some of your financial and emotional burdens, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

Pursuing justice after an accident can be complicated. Various laws and rules determine what actions you can take, when you must file a lawsuit, and how much you can recover. Additionally, building a case against the at-fault party requires a substantial amount of footwork, which can be challenging to accomplish while you're recovering. That is why it's crucial to have a skilled lawyer handle your case.

How Much Can I Recover in My Case?

Our Ohio lawyers are often asked is how much compensation our client can expect to recover. We understand the importance of this question, as a financial award is necessary to take care of accident-related damages. Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer because no two cases are the same, and a general formula cannot be applied.

Several factors come into play when determining award amounts:

  • Economic damages: These are calculable expenses and losses, such as medical bills, that have an actual dollar amount attached to them. Financial recovery will depend on the type of treatment received, how long the individual was out of work, and various other elements.
  • Noneconomic damages: These are more difficult to calculate because they do not have a dollar amount attached to them. Noneconomic damages including things such as pain/suffering and emotional distress.
  • Insurance policy limits: The at-fault party's insurance likely has a maximum amount they will pay out when someone is injured in an accident.
  • Statutory damage caps: Ohio law places caps on how much an individual can recover for noneconomic damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Percentage of fault: If a personal injury case goes to court and a judge or jury decides the plaintiff is entitled to financial recovery but also determines they were partially at fault, the amount awarded may be decreased by the plaintiff's percentage of responsibility.

Because a lot must be considered when seeking compensation, speak with our Ohio personal injury lawyers about your case. We will go over the specifics of your situation, evaluate damages, and determine a fair amount to request.

How Long Will My Case Take?

The length of time it will take to resolve your personal injury case also depends on several factors. Again, because every situation is unique, it's difficult to give an exact timeframe.

Various steps may be involved in these matters that affect how long they take:

  • Speaking with an attorney: The first stage in the process is discussing the details of the accident with a lawyer. You want to be sure you provide a full account to allow your attorney to begin developing a legal strategy.
  • Examining evidence: Building a solid and compelling case requires a thorough review of the situation. This can include looking at records, police reports, surveillance footage, and other relevant information, as well as speaking with witnesses. In the case of a car accident, an accident reconstruction expert may be needed to help determine what happened.
  • Waiting for Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI): To seek a fair compensation amount, you must ensure that you consider all current and future medical care needed to treat your injuries. This is most effectively done after you have reached MMI.
  • Negotiating a settlement: When you file a personal injury claim, you must first attempt to resolve the matter with the at-fault party's insurance company. Because the insurer is concerned with protecting its bottom line, it'll likely offer a low amount. To work toward obtaining the recovery you need and deserve, you and your lawyer must negotiate with the company. This stage can take a considerable amount of time.
  • Going to court: If you're unable to settle your case through negotiations, you can pursue a lawsuit. If your matter goes this route, it can take longer to resolve, as a court date must be set, and your case must be presented in front of a judge or jury.

At Henderson, Mokhtari & Weatherly, we can work hard to pursue an effective path for your case. However, that does not mean we will take the easiest route. If the matter can be settled out of court, we will pursue that option. But we will also be ready to litigate if necessary.
