What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law protects you if you are injured or harmed by another person or entity who owed you a duty of care. Personal injuries include physical, mental, or property damage caused by someone's neglect or negligence.

A personal injury lawsuit allows you to sue the party at fault for the adverse financial and non-financial consequences caused by an accident. In most cases, these accidents would have never happened had the other party acted in a manner that any reasonable person would have if they had been in a similar situation. You can recover damages with the help of a personal injury lawyer to pay for medical bills, future medical treatment, lost wages, living expenses, and more.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Reckless drivers, inattentive physicians, and property managers can cause injuries when they fail to act with a reasonable degree of caution and care. Personal injuries can stem from a wide variety of situations involving an individual's or company's negligence or misconduct.

Some examples of careless acts that can unnecessarily harm another person include a speeding driver who causes an accident, injuring or killing another driver. Another example is a physician who breaches the standard of care by failing to order an emergency c-section when an expectant mother's baby appears to be in distress, leading to a birth injury.

Examples of personal injury cases we handle include:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Defective medical devices and drugs
  • Product liability
  • Accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries: spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, loss of limbs, and more
  • Birth injuries
  • Wrongful death

Constant Legal Group helps injured victims recover damages to compensate for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury lawsuits worldwide. There were more than five million car accidents in the United States in 2020 and more than 40,000 traffic-related deaths. In Ohio, specifically, there were 1,242 fatal car crashes in 2021.

Certain behaviors on the road, like distracted driving, reckless speeding, and drunk driving are often to blame for motor vehicle collisions and auto injuries that seriously harm or kill innocent people.

An Ohio personal injury lawyer will help you uncover relevant facts and gather evidence showing how the crash occurred, and who was at fault. Constant Legal Group will use their trial and negotiating experience to defend your rights to possible compensation.

Trucking Accidents

Due to their size and weight trucks pose an increased risk to other drivers. Average semis in the United States can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and the most common type of accidents include:

  • Truck rollovers
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Jackknife accidents
  • T-bone collisions
  • Sideswipe accidents
  • Wide turn accidents

Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, paralysis, broken or fractured bones, and loss of limbs are common types of serious truck injuries. At higher speeds, there is also an increased likelihood of death in truck accidents. Because of the increased risk of injury in truck accidents, they can cause a person's life to change on a dime. While money can never bring back a cherished family member, a personal injury lawyer can help you recover compensation to help cover a sudden loss of income, relevant medical bills, burial expenses, and more.

Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle's lack of roof, seatbelts, or airbags, also creates a more dangerous environment for riders. As much as 42 percent of motorcycle accidents are caused by left-turning cars.

Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most common types of motorcycle injuries, as well as spinal cord injuries, lacerations, broken ribs, loss of limbs, organ damage, and road rash. When you suffer serious and life-changing injuries in a motorcycle accident, an Ohio personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the claims process and ensure you do not leave money on the table or walk away with less than you may deserve.

Birth Injuries

Birth injury medical malpractice can occur when doctors, nurses, or other health care professionals neglect the standard of care before and during delivery, leading to complications during birth. One out of every 100 newborns will experience some form of birth injury.

Medical negligence can cause serious short- or long-term birth injuries, such as:

  • Brain damage
  • Newborn jaundice
  • Skull fractures
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Spinal cord injuries

Medical malpractice can happen before, during, or after the delivery of a baby and might include failing to detect fetal distress or properly monitor the baby's heartbeat, improperly using forceps or a vacuum during delivery, or failing to prevent or treat severe tearing or bleeding in the mother.

When moms or babies experience life-altering harm because of a doctor's neglectful choices, a personal injury attorney can help you pursue financial compensation to assist with long-term medical care and rehabilitation, lost wages, or any other impact on you or your child's quality of life.

Spinal Cord Injuries

The spine comprises hundreds of nerves that control the central nervous system, pain signals, temperature control, and motor commands from the brain to the body.

Spinal cord injuries or trauma from a sudden blow to the spine can lead to impaired function and permanent loss of strength and sensation. Spinal cord injuries might cause a person to lose feeling in one or more areas of their body after a car accident, birth injury, slip and fall, or workplace injury.

No cure is current available for spinal cord injuries; only different treatment options to help a person regain mobility and muscle strength in the first six months to a year. Some people experience paralysis and no longer have any function in the injured area. You could miss work and lose income, be forced to change careers, or need medical help to assist with daily needs like bathing, eating, and getting dressed.

Retaining the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer will ensure you can take care of your health and get your financial future back on track.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Sports incidents, car accidents, medical malpractice, and birth complications can result in lasting brain injuries, like concussions, edemas, hematomas, skull fractures, strokes, and hemorrhages. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may affect a person's ability to function, and about 50 percent of people with a TBI will experience further decline in their daily lives or die within five years of injury.

A significant cause of death and disability, people with TBIs might lose their independence and experience changes in their thinking abilities and emotions, such as memory, attention, speed of thinking, and reasoning. These changes impact a person's everyday life, and they will likely have to participate in long-term treatment, rehabilitation, and therapy to maintain or improve their quality of life.

Hiring an Ohio personal injury lawyer can ensure you receive compensation to help with long-term recovery, medical care, and lost income, among other things.

Dog Bites

Dog attacks and bites can cause physical and emotional harm. Some dogs might only break the skin, while other dog bites could result in permanent scars, lacerations, permanent disfigurement, and nerve damage.

A dog bite can cause extreme pain, uncontrollable bleeding, deep cuts, puncture wounds, infections, and more. A dog attack can also disfigure someone's face and body, requiring multiple surgeries to regain function in areas of their body as well as help the victim rebuild their confidence.

A personal injury lawyer can help you build your case, showing why the dog's owner or the person harboring the dog was negligent. An Ohio personal injury attorney can play a critical role in helping you negotiate money for pain and suffering and physical damages to support your recovery, plastic surgery, rehabilitation, and other treatment.

Premises Liability

Property owners are responsible for keeping properties safe and free from obstacles. Personal injury attorneys can help people injured on someone else's property seek damages from negligent property owners or managers.

Premises liability actions include slips and falls, defective and broken stairs or railings, wet floors, swimming pool accidents, fires and burn injuries, and other similar situations.

Workplace Injuries

Slips, trips, and falls are responsible for one-third of injuries in the workplace. Poorly maintained equipment, spills, and obstructed signage in the workplace are the perfect storm for accidents and sprained or broken bones, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, and in more serious cases, paralysis.

Workplace injuries are often due to accidents like slips and falls, electrocution, exposure to harmful substances, overexertion, being struck by machinery or other objects, vehicle-related accidents, and repetitive stress, to name a few.

A personal injury lawyer in Ohio can help you file a lawsuit against relevant third-party contractors, property owners, and employers who do not offer workers' compensation to cover time off, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. A lawsuit will ensure you get the care you need and be fairly compensated for any financial losses impacting your life.

Wrongful Death

Some acts like reckless driving, and intentional attacks are so willful and careless that they can give rise to a wrongful death claim. Because of one person's poor decision families may never see their loved one again. The loved ones are left with unexpected costs, living expenses, and an uncertain future.

Spouses, dependents, and parents of minor children can take action and file a wrongful death lawsuit against the other party with the help of an experienced and compassionate personal injury lawyer. A settlement may cover lost companionship, funeral expenses, and lost wages from the deceased.

Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Ohio?

Any person over 18 can file a personal injury lawsuit if they were seriously harmed in an accident and are found to be no more than 50% responsible for the incident. A close relative of someone who suffered fatal injuries in an accident caused by another party's negligence may file a wrongful death lawsuit (typically a spouse, dependent, parent of a minor, or the executor of the deceased's will).

An Ohio personal injury lawyer can help prove the defendant is liable for your injuries and arrange a fair settlement or fight for a verdict to help with your short- and long-term financial losses.

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

A personal injury attorney specializes in representing individuals who have been physically or psychologically harmed due to the negligence or wrongful actions of others. Their primary role is to help their clients seek compensation for their injuries and related losses. This may involve investigating the circumstances of the injury, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and, if necessary, litigating the case in court.

Personal injury attorneys typically handle a wide range of cases, including those related to car accidents, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice, product liability, and more, with the goal of securing financial relief for their clients and ensuring they receive the necessary medical care and support.

In a car accident personal injury case, for example, a personal injury lawyer must show proof the defendant was speeding, disobeyed traffic laws, or was similarly reckless behind the wheel. If a defective product harmed a victim, a personal injury lawyer will offer evidence showing the product was defectively designed or manufactured.

Constant Legal Group and our team of seasoned personal injury lawyers will gather evidence and build a case on your behalf to help secure a favorable settlement or verdict.

How Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Establish Negligence?

Negligence is the failure to provide reasonable care, ultimately leading to injuries or damages. To create a favorable outcome, a personal injury lawyer must identify the responsibilities that legally fall on the defendant, show they had a duty to take reasonable preventative measures, and prove they failed to fulfill them.

A personal injury lawyer must typically prove four things in court: duty, breach, causation, and damages/harm, though every state will differ. For example, California requires five conditions, while states like New York and Arkansas require four.

From car accidents to medical malpractice to workplace incidents, a personal injury lawyer can help you gather solid evidence to make an argument on your behalf for compensation. Constant Legal Group is a reputable legal resource with successful personal injury case results to our name and a passion for making a difference for injured victims.
