Ohio Catastrophic Injury Law

Life Can Change in an Instant. We Can Help.

Your health, your family, and your hopes and ambitions can be change in the blink of an eye. After a serious accident, you may be left with debilitating physical injuries and may require repeated surgeries, ongoing physical therapy, and even around-the-clock medical care. You may be unable to return to work, either in your chosen field or in any field at all.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury? Some Examples

A catastrophic injury is a severe injury that leads to long-term, if not permanent, disability or disfigurement.  Examples of catastrophic injuries may include:

  • Accidental amputation or dismemberment
  • Brain injury
  • Eye injury
  • Foot injury
  • Chronic pain
  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Serious head trauma
  • Severe burns
  • Birth injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries.

Catastrophic injuries can not only affect your life, but also your loved ones’ lives.  The financial effects can be as devastating as the injury itself, and the emotional effects even more so.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious or catastrophic injury caused by someone’s negligence, recklessness or other misconduct, you may have grounds for an injury claim or a lawsuit against those responsible.

Steven M. Goldberg has provided aggressive and relentless representation for clients since 1989.  Our legal team has the knowledge of law, the knowledge of medicine, and the decades-long track record to represent your case and get you what you deserve.

Before you can get compensated, we need to determine how much you’ll need.  Proving the extent of an injury can be challenging.  During the pre-litigation process, we work with doctors, life-care planners, and other medical experts to determine the extent of your injuries and determine your future medical needs.  We also have to understand the non-physical effects of the injury (e.g. on your ability to work).

Time Limits for Filing a Catastrophic Injury Claim

All states have limits on the amount of time to file a lawsuit after you have suffered a personal injury. Those deadlines vary depending on the circumstances.  In general, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases filed in Ohio gives an injured person two years from the date of the injury to go to court and file a lawsuit against those responsible for the injury.  If you fail to file your lawsuit in time, the Ohio court system will likely refuse to hear your case at any time in the future, your right to compensation will be lost, and those who caused your pain will walk off scot-free.
