The importance of experts in drunk driving accident lawsuits

In a previous blog post we discussed the differences between economic and noneconomic damages under Ohio law. Currently, victims of drunk driving accidents have little difficulty in recovering economic damages. Basically, victims can usually receive compensation for expenses which are verifiable through documentation such as paycheck stubs, medical bills, etc.

However, it is often more difficult for injured plaintiffs to establish their so-called non-economic losses. These types of injuries are intangible things like pain and suffering, loss of society, and loss of companionship and comfort. This is why it is helpful to have the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney during this process.

Our law firm has over 75 years of combined experience in handling contested hearings and trials throughout the Southwest Ohio region. We understand that sometimes the testimony of an expert is necessary to illustrate how your injuries have affected your life. For example, we may need an expert in pain management to explain debilitating neck and back pain from the jury. Another example may be the use of an economics expert to testify about the potential wages you may have been denied as a result of your injuries. We know just which experts to call upon to help represent your claims to the court.

Collisions caused by drunk drivers are not accidents. They are unfortunate events which occurred because someone intentionally got behind the wheel after drinking. We understand that justice can be rendered through both criminal and civil courts. Our firm stands ready to represent you while pursuing the most favorable available outcome.
