If you are involved in an accident and suspect or know another person is at fault, speak with one of our Cincinnati personal injury lawyers today.

What steps do I take after an injury?

Call 911 to summon police and medical aid. Do not admit any fault to the other driver and ask the police officer to make a report.

Immediately seek medical attention. Even if you “feel fine” or are “a little sore,” you should be checked out by a medical professional.

Take photographs of the damage to your car and your injuries, including any cuts and bruises.

Do not speak to any insurance company, including your own, before talking with an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Stay off social media. Anything you post online may be used by the other insurance companies later in the case.

What are types of personal injury compensation?

There are many different types of personal injury compensation. If you have been injured in an accident, you may be able to recover damages for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages if the other party was grossly negligent. If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages such as funeral expenses and loss of companionship. No matter what type of personal injury claim you have, Minnillo Law Group in Cincinnati can help you get the compensation you deserve.

The cost of your medical treatment is one important aspect of personal injury compensation. The cost of your appointments, physical therapy, surgery, hospitalization and other treatment is considered when you are granted compensation after your lawsuit.

This can also take into account the cost of future medical care. Will you need long-term care to maintain your health after a severe injury? Does your injury require extensive physical therapy? Will your injury result in ongoing medication use or the use of mobility aids? These costs can add up in the future, and that future cost is a part of your medical treatment.

In recovering from your injuries, you might find yourself unable to work. That loss of income will be considered when establishing the compensation you receive.

This can also include your “loss of earning capacity,” the income that you will not be able to earn in the future as a result of the injury. For example, if the injury you or your loved one sustained is disabling then this will be considered.

Damage to your body isn’t the only costly damage that must be considered in your personal injury case – the loss of your property must be accounted for, too. One of the most common forms of property loss is the loss of a car in a car crash, but your lost property can also include clothing, bicycles or other items that were damaged in your accident. The cost of repair or the market value of this property can be included in your compensation.

Your accident can cause a great deal of stress. With medical bills mounting, challenging interactions with insurance companies and other sources of stress, the impact of that stress on your life can be considered when establishing compensation.

The loss of enjoyment considers the impact that your injuries have on your day-to-day life. Has damage to your hands prevented you from pursuing your love of music? Has a leg injury limited your ability to enjoy bicycling in the way you did before? Has your injury impacted your ability to pursue a hobby, exercise or another form of recreation? These lost opportunities are considered to be a loss of enjoyment.

If your personal injury case involves the wrongful death of a loved one, the cost of their funeral could be included in the compensation you receive.

While no sum of money can make up for the loss of a loved one, that loss can be compensated for in a wrongful death case. Their loved ones can receive compensation for the loss of their relationship with the victim.

Your suffering — physical and emotional — is certainly a challenge you face after an accident, and additional compensation may be awarded in light of that pain and suffering.
