Personal injury can take on many forms, but all to often the results are tragic
Unfortunately, for victims of personal injury the courts may not always fulfill the punishments needed to set a precedent and gain sufficient compensation for the injured party. In a recent case where two teenagers severely injured an innocent Ohio women on I-80, it looks like the punishments handed out hardly fit the crime. As a personal injury attorney, cases like these are precisely why I continue to do what I do, in helping victims gain justice.
In July of 2014, two teenage brothers launched a 5-pound rock off of an overpass, crashing through the windshield of the car the victim was riding in. Her extensive brain and facial injuries have required numerous surgeries, and while the victim is making great progress – her life will never be the same.
As a personal injury attorney, my goal is hold those accountable for their wrongdoings
Traumatic brain injury can result in the loss of cognitive and motor function, as well as impact the victims’ senses. In this case, hearing, eyesight and smell were all effected in addition to a variety of physical injuries. Continued reparative surgeries and extensive rehabilitation is key to getting every ounce of progress possible. For an innocent victim that faces a lifetime of challenges as a result of this incident, a potential 18 month sentence hardly seems like justice is being served.
As a personal injury attorney in Ohio, fighting for your rights when you need it most is what drives me to do what I do
Injured victims may be entitled and thus compensated for:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
Additionally, if personal health insurance coverage, and/or vehicle insurance coverage was used to cover medical costs – they too qualify for reimbursement under Ohio law.
