Suffering from an injury is never an ideal position to find yourself in. Between recovery time, medical bills, and psychological pain and suffering, an injury can bring us to our wit’s end.
If someone else’s negligent actions caused the injury, an already difficult situation becomes even worse. In these cases, an injury is no longer just a personal matter.
To get compensation, you have to file a claim. As filing a claim is, by definition, entering into a dispute with or accusing someone else of wrongdoing, it can be scary. However, because you did not cause the injury, you deserve compensation for its costs.
The claims process can appear confusing and difficult at first, but it does not have to be with the right legal help. Findlay personal injury attorney Aaron Bensinger will listen to your story and identify your needs. He will then work tirelessly to help you understand the claims process and take care of the difficult parts.
With the peace of mind of knowing your legal needs are taken care of, you can focus on what is most important—recovery.

What Damages Are Recoverable?
The scope of recoverable damages in an Ohio personal injury case may be broader than you expect. Ohio law recognizes that not all losses are easy to quantify. Damages are split by Ohio law into two main categories: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are those with a precise dollar value. They include:
- Lost wages and earning potential,
- Medical treatment,
- Property damage, and
On the other hand, non-economic damages are intangible; they lack an exact dollar value but are still just as damaging as any economic loss. They include a broad range of different losses, such as:
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional trauma;
- Loss of protection, advice, or counsel;
- Disfigurement; and
- Loss of a body part.
You deserve compensation for any loss you incur due to an injury.

Frequently Asked Questions
As filing a personal injury claim is a new experience for most of our clients, we get a lot of questions. It is our job to have answers to these questions, and we take that seriously.
Ohio law imposes limits on some amounts of claimable damages in personal injury cases. For economic damages, there is no limit. No matter the amount of economic losses you incur, it is all recoverable.
Non-economic damages, however, do have a limit. The cap on non-economic damages is equal to the greater of $250,000 or three times the amount of economic loss, with a maximum of $350,000 per injured person or $500,000 per incident.
Every personal injury claim is worth a different amount. The value of a claim depends primarily on the total cost of economic losses. Similarly, the total amount of non-economic damages a claim is worth depends on the losses specific to that case. This is not to say that a minor injury is not worth pursuing a claim over. Even an injury with a relatively small amount of economic loss can include significant non-economic losses. It all depends on the losses you suffer and your lawyer’s ability to show those losses.
Often our clients have concerns about whether they can afford to hire an attorney. If their claim is not successful, they fear that hiring an attorney can put them further in the hole than they were before. This is not the case, however. Most personal injury firms, including Bensinger Law, will not charge a fee if a claim is not successful. Instead, they charge a fixed percentage of the final settlement amount, which is only due if a claim is successful. In this way, hiring a personal injury attorney is affordable to all injured parties, as it should be.
