We will give you frank advice on whether you will benefit from hiring a lawyer or by handling your insurance claim on your own.

Questions to be determined after a car accident include:

When should I hire an accident attorney?

GAP Coverage

GAP coverage is worth considering for owned and leased cars where you have an outstanding loan. Rapid depreciation during the first few years of a car’s life can mean owing more on the car than its actual value. If your car is totaled in a crash, the insurance payoff may not be enough to cover the outstanding balance.

Relatively inexpensive, GAP coverage will pay the difference between the actual cash value of the vehicle and your outstanding loan or lease balance.

For more information on property damage, including actual cash value, please see the Ohio Department of Insurance Auto Insurance Shopper’s Guide.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

Many factors may affect how much your car accident case is worth:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • How your injuries are expected to affect you in the future
  • The balance of fault
  • Hospital bills and other medical costs
  • Lost income
  • Reduction in earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other potential damages

Although it is impossible to guess how much your car accident lawsuit may be worth, it can be helpful to speak to a personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options and get answers to your questions regarding your accident.

What Should I Do After A Car Accident In Cincinnati?

After a car accident in Cincinnati, make sure that you and others around you are safe. Move to a safe location if possible; call the police to report the accident. Document the scene by taking photos and gathering information from other drivers involved, including names, contact details and insurance information. Avoid discussing fault at the scene. Get medical attention, even if you do not see any visible injuries. Contacting a Cincinnati car accident lawyer can help you navigate the next steps as well.

How Long Does It Typically Take To Resolve A Car Accident Lawsuit In Ohio?

The duration of a car accident lawsuit in Ohio varies depending on the complexity of the case and the cooperation of all parties involved. Typically, it takes anywhere from a few months to a couple of years. Factors that affect the timeline include:

  • The severity of injuries
  • The clarity of the liability
  • The number of parties involved
  • The caseload of the courts

We work to resolve your case as efficiently and quickly as possible, as quickly as possible, so you can move forward with your life.

How Do I Determine Who Is At Fault In A Car Accident?

Determining fault in a car accident involves assessing the actions of each driver and how they contributed to the accident. Ohio follows a comparative negligence rule, meaning that each party’s fault is considered in determining liability. If a person is over 50% at fault, they cannot recover under a liability theory. Evidence such as police reports, witness statements, traffic laws and accident scene photos are crucial. We assist in gathering and analyzing this evidence to establish a strong case for your claim.

What Should I Do If The Insurance Company Offers Me A Settlement Quickly After The Accident?

If you receive a quick offer from an insurer after an accident, proceed with caution. You need to have a comprehensive idea of your damages and their value before you sign any agreement. Insurance companies often offer quick settlements to minimize payouts. We recommend consulting with a lawyer who can assess the offer and negotiate on your behalf to ensure it covers the total of your medical expenses, lost wages and related costs.

Why Should I Hire A Car Accident Lawyer If I’ve Been Involved In An Accident In Cincinnati?

You should hire a car accident lawyer if you have been involved in an accident in any state, even if the case seems simple and straightforward. The insurance companies are not there to protect you, and typically act in their own self-interest. Further, most people are not versed in personal injury or property damage, and so it is much easier if they deal with someone who is experienced at handling these matters.

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring Gregory S. Young As My Legal Representation In A Car Accident Case?

Our firm has been in existence for over 75 years and is family owned. We care about the people we represent, which is why we also help with property damage claims for our clients and often take the smaller cases. We want to make sure that our clients understand the process as well as their rights, and make sure everything is done properly and with the best outcome.

What Steps Will Your Firm Take To Ensure I Receive Fair Compensation For My Injuries And Damages?

The steps we take depend upon the case. Each case is different. However, we first investigate whether there is any insurance to cover the damages for the claim. After that, we will request all bills and records for each provider the client has completed treatment. We will then follow up with the client regularly to determine their treatment status and make sure their treatment plan is being followed. Once they have completed treatment, then we move forward with collecting the remaining bills and records and moving towards a potential settlement.

What Kind Of Compensation Can I Expect To Receive For A Car Accident Claim In Cincinnati?

There is no formula for compensation. Each case is different, and is dependent upon the type of accident, the force, the client’s injuries, the required treatment for those injuries, and the medical bills involved. It also depends on how the accident has affected their lives in terms of lost work, relationships, as well as other opportunities. We have a better idea as to what a case is worth once we have received all of the relevant documentation and have completed our review when we are approaching negotiations.

Do You Offer A Free Consultation For Car Accident Cases?


What Should I Do To Prepare For My First Meeting With A Car Accident Attorney?

We do not ask for much. However, having your police report and insurance policy or claim information is extremely helpful, as well as an accurate description of the accident itself as well as your injuries and treatment up to the time of our meeting. However, we can work with whatever information you have when you call our office.

How Can Your Firm Help If I Have Ongoing Medical Issues Due To The Accident?

This is a more complicated question and something we would discuss if it does come to that point. We suggest people do not assume they will always have these issues unless a doctor tells them their injuries are now permanent. If so, we will discuss what needs to be done at that point. That is very rare.

What Costs Are Typically Associated With A Car Accident, And How Can I Manage Them Financially?

Most people have medical bills to deal with, property damage repair costs, as well as lost wages. There can also be other financial costs. Medical bills are always the client’s responsibility. The reason for that is that no one else has the right to pay your bills and how much to pay on these bills. Only you know what your financial priorities are. We will discuss your options with you throughout the process.

Property damage costs normally go through the insurance company, but sometimes there are exceptions. Lost wages are reimbursed at time of settlement assuming we can relate them to the accident. If you do lose work, the best thing is to make sure you get a doctor’s note for each day or period of time that you miss.
