Frequently Asked Questions in Ohio Personal Injury Claims
If you’re not sure how personal injury cases work, don’t worry. Check out our most frequently asked questions below for more information.
How do I file a personal injury claim in Ohio?
To file a personal injury claim in Ohio, you have to file a suit initiating document known as a Complaint with the appropriate Court. While you can file a Complaint on your own, this is not recommended because the filing and prosecution of a lawsuit requires extensive legal knowledge. If you want to file a personal injury claim, you should contact the personal injury lawyers at Colombo Law. Many types of accidents could cause you to need a personal injury lawyer. However, all personal injury cases have the same premise: you were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party. If you have been injured due to no fault of your own, contact us today so we can work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Who will pay my compensation for a personal injury claim in Ohio?
In most cases, the at-fault party’s insurance company will end up paying you the compensation required for the damages you sustain in an accident. Don’t go through this process alone. Our experienced personal injury lawyers have the knowledge necessary to obtain the compensation your case deserves. Insurance companies tend to offer injury victims much less than they deserve, and the best way to avoid the same thing happening to you is through the help of an experienced Ohio personal injury lawyer.
How much compensation can I receive for my personal injury claim?
Every personal injury case is different. Personal injuries can stem from numerous accidents including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Dog bites
- Burn accidents
No matter what type of accident caused your injuries, if it was caused by the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. We can’t guarantee you a certain amount of money, however, we can promise that our personal injury attorneys will do everything in their power to obtain the maximum amount of compensation that your case deserves.
How long will my personal injury case take to complete?
There is no telling how long your personal injury case will take to complete. There are a number of factors that can affect the length of your case, including determining fault, gathering evidence, speaking with witnesses, talking to insurance companies, and settlement negotiations. All of these aspects take time, and should not be rushed as they are imperative to getting you the compensation you deserve. The personal injury lawyers at Colombo Law are dedicated to completing every aspect of your case carefully and correctly. It is with this precision that we can work towards winning your case.
Should I accept an insurance settlement for my personal injury claim before consulting with a lawyer?
We advise that you never speak with an insurance representative until you have first spoken to one of the personal injury lawyers at Colombo Law. While insurance companies may offer you fast money, the offer will almost never be enough to cover your damages. At Colombo Law, we never settle for the minimum and are extremely focused on achieving the maximum amount of compensation for our clients. We will deal with the insurance companies, and work to ensure that you get a fair settlement offer. And if the insurance company does not make a reasonable offer, our experienced personal injury lawyers will file a Complaint on your behalf and take the case to trial if necessary.
