Why Seeking Compensation is So Important
Unfortunately for most, the consequences of an accident don’t stop at the injury. Medical bills for things such as rehabilitation, therapies, medications, and medical supplies can pile up. In addition, you could be losing income due to your inability to work.
At StachlerHarmon Attorneys at Law, we make it our mission to seek out the compensation you deserve. Let us fight on your behalf while you focus on healing. In addition to the damages listed above, we’ll also work to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
Types of Damages You Can Recover
In the state of Ohio, damages in personal injury cases are often divided into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages consist of those damages that can be quantified and are often easier to prove, such as:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Property damages
- Loss of wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Funeral costs (in the case of wrongful death)
Non-economic damages include things money cannot cover and are not easily quantified. They can include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Decreased quality of life due to injuries
- Physical disfigurement or impairment
- Loss of consortium (loss of relationship with a husband, wife, or partner)
To see which damages you may qualify for, it is important to seek the professional advice of personal injury attorneys.
Determining Fault in Ohio
Ohio is an “at-fault” state, meaning that, in the event of a car accident, the driver responsible (or their insurer) must cover all losses and damages. This typically makes the insurance handling and payment process an aggressive one. It’s important to get a copy of the police report from your accident so your insurance company—and your attorney—have the most accurate account.
When you work with StachlerHarmon Attorneys at Law, in addition to scouring police reports and examining the available evidence, we utilize auto accident reconstructionists, medical doctors, vocational rehabilitation specialists, and other experts who can help bolster your case.
