You May Be Eligible to Recover a Wide Variety of Damages
When a distracted driving accident lawyer builds a strong case to support the pursuit of compensation for a client, a key component of this case is to prove their economic and noneconomic damages related to the accident and their injuries. These are the losses and expenses they endured when they were hurt because of the accident caused by the other driver. The type and value of damages can differ from case to case, although, some types are typical in any car accident case. They include:
- Medical care costs and future costs to treat injuries
- Ongoing care costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Repairs or replacement of your vehicle
- Out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident or your injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
If your loved one passed away because of the injuries they sustained in a distracted driving accident, you may be eligible to pursue wrongful death compensation on behalf of surviving family members. We can explain your options, and our compassionate team will guide you through this process.
Ohio’s Statute of Limitations Limits How Long You Have to File a Lawsuit in a Distracted Driving Accident Case
Ohio’s statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit is generally two years from the date of the accident. If you do not take legal action for your accident by the time this deadline passes, you may lose the right to pursue compensation in court.
When you reach out to our team, we can go to work quickly on your case.
