Dayton Injury Attorneys

Common Causes of Personal Injuries

Accidents happen for a reason, and it is usually because someone was careless or reckless. In legal terms, this conduct is known as negligence and very specific elements need to be established to recover compensation for your losses.  It does not matter what kind of accident it is – these accidents too often end up with the same results – loss of work, pain and suffering, stress and emotional overload.  You should be compensated if someone else’s conduct or behavior resulted in your injuries.

Our personal injury attorneys are knowledgeable in a wide range of accident cases, including:

  • Traffic Related Crashes: Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents which can cause serious injuries when drivers are not exercising reasonable care. As a pedestrian or bicyclist, you can even be hurt in an incident when you are not behind the wheel.
  • Hazardous Conditions on Property: Owners, occupiers, and others in control of property have an obligation under Ohio law to keep the premises safe. Their failure can lead to severe personal injuries to victims of slip and fall incidents.
  • Medical Errors: Failures or delays in diagnosis, prescribing the wrong drug, surgical errors, and other mistakes are errors that should not happen. Doctors can be liable when they cause injuries through medical malpractice.
  • Dangerous Products: You expect consumer products to be defect-free for use when you buy them and take them home. Manufacturers may be responsible for your losses if they are negligent in their duty to provide a safe product.

 

Recovering Compensation for Your Losses

In cases based upon negligence, victims are entitled to recover monetary damages intended to be compensation for their losses. There are two kinds of damages under Ohio law:

  • Economic Damages: These are your out-of-pocket, definable losses. In this category, you can recover for medical bills and lost income.
  • Non-Economic Damages: You sustain physical and emotional losses as a result of your injuries, even though you may not have a receipt representing your losses. Pain and suffering, scarring, emotional anguish, and related hardships fall in this category.

You may suffer considerable losses when hurt due to someone else’s negligence, and you may be entitled to recover compensation.  Because every personal injury case is unique, it is crucial to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to evaluate your individual case and determine an approximate minimum and maximum value for your case.
