How Long Do I Have to File a Case?

Every state puts a time limit on how long an injury victim has to file a claim, also called the statute of limitations. Ohio has a two-year statute of limitation on personal injury cases, which means you have two years from the date of you injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation.

What Damages Can I Recover?

Damages, or compensation, that can be recovered in a personal injury case can be divided into three main categories: special, general, and punitive. Special damages, also called economic damages, compensate for the financial hardships that accompany an injury, this can include medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work. These types of damages are usually quite simple to quantify since they are compensating for specific losses.

General damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. Usually more difficult to quantify, these damages are also called non-economic damages since they compensate for all losses not associated with an actual number. The third type of compensation, punitive damages, is different from general and special damages in that their main purpose is to punish the defendant for their negligent actions. As such these damages are not awarded very often

Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?

Unlike insurance companies, Rourke & Blumenthal are your true advocates fighting for your best interest every step along the way. Insurance companies, more often than not, are looking out for their company’s profit, not what you need to recover well after an accident. Additionally, many people find that their injuries are more severe days or weeks after they sustain them. If you accept an insurance settlement before you know how serious your injuries are, you may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An attorney from our firm can fight to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
