What are the Most Common Types of Compensation Pursued During Ohio Auto Accident and Injury Claims?

While all auto accidents and injuries are unique and require a skilled attorney to assess and outline the overall damages, the following is a list of common compensation options pursued during a claim.

  • Medical Expenses

You can seek compensation for all medical costs related to the accident, including hospital bills, surgeries, doctor visits, prescription medications, rehabilitation, and any future medical expenses related to the injuries.

  • Lost Wages

If the injuries from the accident result in missed work or a reduced ability to work, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and future earning capacity.

  • Pain and Suffering

Non-economic damages for physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish caused by the accident and its aftermath.

  • Permanent Disability or Disfigurement

If the accident results in long-term disability or disfigurement, you may be eligible for compensation to address the impact on your quality of life.

  • Loss of Consortium

Spouses or family members may seek compensation for the loss of companionship, support, and intimacy resulting from the injuries sustained in the accident.

  • Wrongful Death Damages

In the unfortunate event of a fatal car accident, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other related damages through a wrongful death claim.

  • Punitive Damages

In cases of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct, the court may award punitive damages to punish the at-fault party and deter similar behavior in the future.

Consulting with our skilled personal injury attorneys in Ohio can help you understand your rights, evaluate your case, and navigate the legal process to seek the compensation you deserve.
