You need to understand that getting compensation in the aftermath of a car crash can be difficult, even when the other person was at fault. First, we want to outline some basic steps you can take to help this process flow more smoothly:
We know that for the latest reporting year in Ohio, we know that there were 1,094 traffic-crash fatalities and 18,832 traffic-crash injuries. In many cases, these injuries were severe and included:
The costs associated with crash injuries extend well beyond the medical bills that will begin to pile up (that often reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars). If crash victim is unable to work due to their injuries, they could lose the income they need to support themselves and their families.
Some of the main contributors to vehicle crashes in Ohio include the following:
When another person’s reckless behavior causes injuries in a crash, they need to be held accountable. In some cases, the fault lies squarely with one defendant. In other cases, multiple defendants may be held accountable. For instance, if you are hit by a car owned by a commercial business, then that business and the driver of the car might share liability for your injuries.

We will work to investigate what happened, handle the insurance companies, and move to secure the compensation you need for all of your crash-related expenses. This can include coverage for:
If your loved one—a spouse, child, parent, or another relative—was killed in a car accident due to the actions or negligence of someone else—specifically, the wrongful act, neglect, or default” of another person or party, you may be able to recover damages for your loss.
Car accidents where the decedent’s family may be able to collect damages in a wrongful death claim include those where the other driver caused an accident while driving drunk, driving while texting or otherwise distracted, or driving aggressively. Essentially, if the decedent would have been able to recover damages due to negligence, then the wrongful death claim allows the surviving family member to do the same.
Potential compensable damages in wrongful death claims include:
Like all personal injury claims in the state of Ohio, plaintiffs have just two years from the date of the death (or the discovery of the wrongful nature of the death) to file a wrongful death claim that arises due to a car accident.
