The shock of getting involved in a car accident, whether injuries are sustained or not, leaves a person unable to register anything for some time afterwards. However, the time right after a crash is perhaps the most important time to think clearly in order to ensure that an accident victim has the option of pursuing a civil claim against the negligent driver at a later date. Lawyers at our firm understand the importance of this crucial time and can take this headache away from an accident victim, by evaluating their claim and speaking to witnesses and gathering evidence on their behalf as quickly as possible.
As mentioned on last week's post, the number of drunk driving accidents caused by teens may be decreasing generally, but the reality is that these crashes still take place very frequently in Ohio, as well as across the country. And a startling number of people lose their lives in these tragic accidents.
Lawyers at our firm understand that there is no way a family can ever be the same after they lose a loved one, whether emotionally or financially. However, we can help family members pursue justice in order to deal with the financial uncertainty that comes with losing a loved one. We have handled many difficult wrongful death claims over the last 50 years and can recover costs for funeral expenses, lost wages and any others arising with the accident.
We begin by trying to negotiate a settlement but, if the offer is too low, we aggressively pursue your rights in litigation. For more on wrongful death, visit our webpage.
