Youngstown Personal Injury Attorneys
What Could Your Personal Injury Case Be Worth?
The value of each unique case depends on the:
- Severity of the injury
- Permanency of the injury
- Current and future medical bills
- Extent of emotional trauma
- Length of time needed to heal
The value we place on these categories of damage will inevitably be different from the insurance companies’ view of the matter. We will argue and fight to convince the insurance company or a jury of your perspective regarding damages.

Any injury can cause disruption and difficulty for you and your family. If you have been in an accident in which you suffered serious injury, or if you have lost a loved one in a preventable accident, we are prepared to provide the experienced, award-winning advocacy you deserve.
In today’s climate, as bad as the accident may have been, we can guarantee that the insurance companies will not offer you enough money to adequately compensate you for your pain and suffering. Insurers will twist the facts of the case to make it seem that you are fault or partly at fault, and they will always minimize the extent of your injury and losses.
We negotiate with insurance companies, and in the rare instances it is needed, we fight them in court to make sure you receive a fair settlement or verdict.
How is Pain and Suffering Calculated in Ohio?
In Ohio, pain and suffering can be calculated can be determined by the following ways:
- Setting a daily pain and suffering rate
- Multiplying economic damages for medical expenses and lost wages by a factor of 3 to 5 that reflects the severity of pain and suffering
Setting a daily plan and a suffering rate works when it appears that settlement negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company intends to drag out settlement negotiations. Waiting the entire time for the personal injury case to resolve can cause plenty of distress to an individual and their family. Charging the insurer $100/day that a negotiated settlement is not reached compensates the accident victim and applies pressure on the insurer to act quickly and in good faith.
The second method works best when an accident victim incurs relatively low economic losses but experiences significant pain and suffering. An example would be medical bills totaling $11,000 could serve as the basis for a $55,000 pain and suffering damages award when the accident victim develops PTSD or a chronic pain syndrome.
