Common Injuries in Ohio Accidents
When you or a loved one is injured in an accident, the effect on your life can be devastating. Any kind of injury can present you with challenges and obstacles to overcome. How an accident and the resulting injuries affect your life is highly individualized. No two accidents or injuries are ever the same.
At Kisling, Nestico & Redick, our Ohio personal injury lawyers have experience handling cases involving many different types of injuries. We understand even a relatively minor injury can take a toll on your finances, family life, and your ability to perform daily tasks. Serious injuries can have an even greater impact.
If you’ve been seriously injured, you may have to undergo surgery, lengthy rehabilitation, or other forms of treatment that are both time-consuming and expensive. You may experience long-term or permanent damage and limitations of function. A serious injury may prevent you from working for long periods of time or require that you seek retraining for a different kind of job altogether.
Accidents are unpredictable and can result in many types of injuries Some of the most common types of serious injuries we’ve handled include:
Brain Injuries — A brain injury has the ability to change your life forever. Potential effects of a brain injury can include loss of memory, motor functions, cognitive functions, speech, hearing, or vision. You may experience headaches and other chronic pain, as well as depression and changes to your personality. A brain injury can touch every part of your life, including your work, your hobbies, and your relationships with people close to you.
Neck, Back, and Spinal Cord Injuries — Injuries to your neck, back, or spinal cord are common in accidents involving falls or those involving impacts, such as car or truck accidents. These types of injuries can result in long-term or permanent damage to your vertebrae, nerves, or muscles. Effects of a neck, back, or spinal cord injury can include chronic pain, loss of sensation, loss of range of motion, and paralysis.
Catastrophic Injuries — When your injuries are so severe that you are left permanently disabled, your injuries may be described as catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries can involve the need for long-term medical or nursing home care.

Ohio Personal Injury Claims
A serious injury can involve significant medical expenses you may be unable to afford, especially if you’ve been forced to miss work while you recover. Your situation may be especially frustrating because your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence and could have been prevented if the responsible party had exercised more care.
In Ohio, when you suffer an injury because of someone else’s negligence, such as in a car accident or through an act of medical malpractice, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
Through a personal injury claim with KNR, you may receive compensation for your past and future:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
To obtain compensation, you must prove that the other person was negligent. In other words, you must demonstrate that the responsible party acted in a way that was unreasonable, or failed to take an action that a reasonable person would have taken, and that their act or failure to act caused your injuries.
As with any type of other accident-related injury, if your injury was work-related, you may be able to recover funds for your medical bills and lost wages. However, with workers’ compensation claims in Ohio, it’s unnecessary in to prove negligence. You need only demonstrate that your injury happened in the course of your employment and was related to your employment.
