When you get in your car, enter someone else’s property, or simply walk down the street, you expect that others will act reasonably and not cause you harm. When this expectation is broken, serious personal injury can occur. If you or a loved one have been injured because of the intentional or careless actions of another, you may have a legal claim for personal injury. A personal injury attorney in Burg Simpson’s Cincinnati office can help you pursue your legal rights and get the justice you deserve.

What is a Personal Injury Claim?
“Personal injury” is a broadly defined term used to describe claims that result when a person is injured and someone else may be responsible for that harm. This often requires proving that the other person acted negligently (or otherwise breached the necessary standard of care) and as a result, you suffered an injury. If you have been hurt in Cincinnati because someone else acted dangerously or because they failed to act in a way that would have prevented that injury, Burg Simpson Cincinnati’s personal injury attorneys can help.
Personal injury claims can arise in a nearly unlimited number of situations and can be caused by individuals or businesses. Just as the numerous causes of personal injury claims may vary, so too can the resulting injuries, ranging from whiplash and sprains to catastrophic limb loss, spinal injuries, and death. Victims of personal injuries may be able to recover compensation for resulting damages such as their pain and suffering, lost wages, and emotional trauma.

Common Questions About Personal Injury
What should I do after I have been injured in an accident?
After you receive the necessary medical attention, save any and all documentation and evidence you may have in your possession that may help prove your claim, including medical records, receipts, and witness statements. If you are able, take photographs of the scene of the accident and/or your subsequent injuries. This evidence will help an insurance adjuster or jury understand and believe your claim.
Since location is so important to a case, it is always a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer who practices locally. At Burg Simpson Cincinnati, we are experienced in trying cases for personal injury in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. This is especially important in cities like Cincinnati, where the personal injury laws can change within a few miles, depending on where you live or where the accident occurred.
Get in touch with a personal injury lawyer before it is too late. Keep in mind there are laws that set time limits for when you can file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations can change depending on where you live or where the event occurred. For example, Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky have different deadlines for filing personal injury claims. These limitation can be very nuanced and complicated. Do not try to figure everything out on your own! Reach out to our personal injury lawyers in Cincinnati immediately to discuss your case with us for free.
WHAT IS MY PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM WORTH?
While there is no set claim value, the personal injury lawyers at Burg Simpson Cincinnati evaluate several factors to determine the value of your personal injury claim. Such factors that can affect the value of your claim include:
- The nature and extent of your injury and the costs of your medical treatment
- The degree of fault of the party causing the injury, and the determination of whether you share a portion of the fault
- The potential economic loss sustained by you, based on your work history, salary, your ability to return to work, and extent of any disability
- The potential for future medical care and other life care needs
- Whether you have pre-existing medical conditions
