Ohio Personal Injury Overview

Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another’s negligence or intentional misconduct. Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Ohio to evaluate your claim.

Ohio follows a system using the modified comparative negligence – 51% rule.  In states following a modified comparative fault – 51% rule, an injured party can only recover if it is determined that his or her fault in causing the injury does not reach 51%.  If the injured party was 50% or less at fault, he or she may still recover damages.  However, if a plaintiff’s fault reaches 51%, he or she recovers nothing.  In other words, a plaintiff may have caused half of the accident and still recover damages from the court, but if it is found that the plaintiff’s fault was responsible for more than half of the accident, that plaintiff is barred from receiving any damages determined by the court.  Here, as in a pure comparative negligence state, a plaintiff’s recovery is reduced by the degree of his or her fault.  For example, if Debbie sued Dave for damages she suffered in a car accident involving their vehicles, and Debbie was 51% at fault, Debbie would not recover anything from Dave.  If, however, Debbie was 40% at fault, she could recover damages, but the damage award would be reduced by her portion of the fault in causing the injury.  Therefore, a finding that Debbie suffered $10,000 in damages would result in Debbie receiving an award reduced by 40%, or a final award of $6,000.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

Ohio Statutes of Limitations

In Ohio, the courts follow a modified joint and several liability approach in entering judgment against multiple defendants.  A defendant found to be 51% or more negligent in causing the injury is jointly and severally liable for the plaintiff’s economic losses, making that defendant subject to the entire judgment amount.  A defendant less than 51% negligent will be responsible only for the portion of damages proportionate to his or her share of the negligence.  Additionally, non-economic damages are apportioned to each defendant based on that defendant’s percentage of the fault.
