In car, truck, or motorcycle accident cases where the at-fault driver was drunk or under the influence of drugs, a spinal cord injury victim may also be able to seek punitive damages. These are noncriminal fines imposed by a civil trial jury to punish reckless behavior and to send a message to other people who might endanger fellow Ohioans by driving while impaired.
Ohio does not set limits on the amounts of economic damages a spinal cord injury victim can claim or receive. The primary goal when filing an insurance claim or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit is to secure the injured person all the money he or she needs to recover financially from the accident. A goal that is nearly as important is to secure additional funds to ensure that ongoing care or lingering disabilities do not again sink the spinal cord injury victim into debt.
