Tittle & Perlmuter
Injuries can be challenging and frustrating, especially when the damages were the result of another party’s mistake. Many parties, especially corporate entities, try to escape responsibilities and avoid being held accountable. The Elyria personal injury lawyers at Tittle & Perlmuter are determined to bring you what you are legally and justly owed.
Our firm is known for handling some of the most serious personal injury cases. Throughout Elyria and Northern Ohio, those seriously injured, or individuals who have loved ones that are seriously injured, turn to Tittle & Perlmuter for help.
To obtain compensation, the burden of proof is on the injured party who must show that the defendant’s negligence caused their harm. This fact makes it vital to retain an experienced attorney who could zealously represent your legal interests, whether at the negotiating table or in a court of law.
Types of Civil Claims We Handle
Depending on the severity of the incident, an injured party may suffer minor injuries from contusions to long-term impairment and disfigurement. One of our civil claims attorneys in Elyria could ensure that the person or entity responsible for an individual’s losses is held legally responsible. Some of the cases handled by our team may include:
- Auto accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Faulty product claims
- Semi-truck accidents
- Nursing home mistreatment
- Wrongful death
A civil claims attorney could fight for the compensation that covers a claimant’s lost earnings, medical bills, ambulance expenses, and other economic damages depending on their situation. Additionally, a claimant may qualify for noneconomic damages, such as emotional distress and pain and suffering. It is important to note that Ohio Revised Code §2315.18 restricts the amount of noneconomic compensation a person may receive to $250,000 or triple their economic damages, whichever amount is more.
In Elyria, emotional damages may not exceed $350,000 per claimant and $500,000 per incident. These limitations pertain to noneconomic damages only and would not be applicable if the injured party suffers catastrophic personal harm, such as amputation.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases
Under Oh. Rev. Code § 2305.10, all personal injury cases are subject to a standard two-year filing deadline. In most cases, if the claimant does not initiate lawsuit proceedings within two years of the incident date, they would be unable to collect damages. However, there are a few exceptions to this statutory deadline. For example, state law provides that if a potential claimant is under the age of 18 at the time they suffer losses, the deadline may be extended. In this situation, the two-year deadline would not commence until the plaintiff’s 18th birthday. Individuals should speak with a lawyer in Elyria as soon as they learn of their personal injury to ensure protection for their recovery rights.
