Compensation You May Be Entitled to Recover

The compensation you are entitled to recover is not limited to your medical bills. Other economic damages you can recover include lost wages and a loss of earning potential. Non-economic damages are also recoverable. These are damages that do not have a strict dollar value. They include pain and suffering, loss of companionship and other social relationships, and loss of a limb or other bodily functions.

Frequently Asked Questions

We get a lot of questions about personal injuries and the claims process. Many of our clients have never filed a personal injury claim before and are unsure of what they should expect in the claims process. Here are some of the most common questions we receive.

What Should I Do After an Injury?

After an injury, the most important thing to do is to seek medical care for your injuries. Getting proper medical care should always be your number one priority. If someone else’s actions cause your injury and you plan to seek compensation, it is also important to obtain the personal information of the person who caused the injury. If you do not have this information, it could be difficult or impossible to file a compensation claim. 

Finally, it is essential to record everything. Maintain a complete record of medical bills, wages lost due to the injury, and injury symptoms. You might even want to keep a journal of your emotional state. Injuries can cause psychological damage. A journal helps you keep track of potential psychological damage and will help demonstrate such damage when you seek compensation for it.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

The amount of time you have after an injury to file a lawsuit or claim seeking compensation for damages is limited by your state’s statute of limitations. Once the time limit passes, obtaining compensation is no longer a possibility. If you’re injured, that’s the last thing you want. 

In Ohio, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date the injury occurs. It’s important to reach out to a personal injury attorney soon after your accident to make sure you can prepare and file your claim on time.

How Long Does It Take to Settle a Claim?

There is no “average” length of time that settling a personal injury claim takes. Each case is unique. Thus, the amount of time it takes to settle a claim depends entirely on the case’s specifics. One personal injury claim may only take two or three weeks to resolve, while another will take two years. 

Some injury claims may be relatively simple. In these cases, settlement can happen rather quickly. If liability and the amount of your damages are not in dispute, settling should not take long. In such cases, hiring an Van Wert personal injury attorney may not even be necessary. 

On the other hand, if there is a dispute over a case’s facts, settling may take a long time. In these cases having a personal injury attorney is crucial. For example, if there is disagreement over who was at fault for causing an injury, a settlement outside of court may be difficult If the parties can’t resolve the issue through negotiations, it will likely go to trial. If a personal injury claim goes to trial, it is a safe bet that it will take quite a while to resolve. Other relevant factors that affect the settlement process’s length include the severity of the injury (or injuries), the extent and type of damages claimed, and what evidence exists to help prove a given claim.
