Unfortunately, car accidents are a risk that every driver on the road must face. In fact, car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in the United States each year. Car accidents can result in serious injuries including brain injuries, concussions, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, burns, paralysis, disfigurement or torn ligaments. These types of serious injuries can have devastating long-term consequences and create an overwhelming financial burden for you and your family. When a car accident occurs due to a third party’s negligence or wrongdoing, there may be grounds for you to pursue a personal injury claim.
How Ohio Car Accident Attorneys Can Help
Car accidents account for a large portion of personal injury claims. The statute of limitations to bring a personal injury lawsuit in Ohio is two years after the accident. If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a car accident due to a third party’s negligence, you should seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney right away. A skilled and knowledgeable personal injury attorney will thoroughly investigate your accident, collect evidence of your injuries, and guide you through the process of filing your claim.
Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering/mental anguish, loss of consortium and disfigurement. In some rare circumstances, punitive damages may also be awarded. No one personal injury case is the same and there are a number of factors that will impact the compensation you can expect to receive including insurance limits, damage caps, comparative negligence rules and prior injuries.
It is important to understand that the insurance company is not looking out for your best interest. The insurance company may try to dispute the facts of your accident or attempt to deny your claim. You will need an experienced personal injury attorney that can work with the insurance adjusters to make sure that your legal rights are protected.
