According to the Insurance Research Council, the cost of car accidents is going up, and a serious accident can put you and your family in a tough situation. Worse yet, there's no easy way to minimize these costs. You can’t compromise your medical treatment if you want to fully recover. Even though you can’t afford to miss work, you can’t go back to work because your injuries make it hard to do your job. You have to get your car fixed, because you’ve got to get around.
What you can do is take steps to recover those expenses without putting yourself and your family at even greater financial risk. How do you do that? The first step is making sure you don't talk with the insurance company. They may try to get you to sign a settlement agreement soon after your accident. More than likely, the amount they are offering isn’t enough. Don’t give into temptation and take their first offer. Instead, call a lawyer and discuss your claim first.
An experienced lawyer can tell you whether or not the insurance company’s offer is fair. If it is, you’ve lost nothing by consulting with an attorney. If their offer isn’t fair, a lawyer can help you get the compensation you truly deserve. Call our Ohio car accident attorneys for a free consultation. There’s no obligation and no cost to you.

Given that it’s the seventh-most populous state in the nation, it’s no surprise that Ohio’s highways and interstates are among the most heavily traveled in the U.S. The wear and tear caused by millions of vehicles traversing the state every year means our highways and interstates need frequent and extensive repairs, and those repairs mean […]
If you were recently hurt in a crash, getting medical attention for your injuries was likely your first and top priority. However, emergency medical treatment is expensive, especially for injuries suffered in car accidents.

Getting full compensation after a car accident typically requires presenting two types of evidence. First, you need evidence that proves you weren’t at fault for the crash. Sometimes, this evidence is easily found. It can include things like dashcam footage, eyewitness statements, and even admissions of fault from the other driver. But in other cases, […]
