How do I start a personal injury lawsuit?

Though most Ohio drivers may do their best to drive safely on the road, the sad reality is that car crashes happen daily on the roads. Drivers and their passengers may get injured in the accident and some may even lose their lives due to the catastrophic injuries sustained in the accident. While it may not be on their mind at that time, accident victims and their loved ones may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver who caused the accident. The question family members and victims may have is, how does one start a lawsuit?

Possible compensation for drunk driving accidents

When an Ohio resident leaves their house in the morning, be it for work or to run an errand, they say goodbye to their loved ones under the assumption that they will return home soon. When they do not return due to a tragic accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, family members may strive to come to terms with their loss. When they learn their loved one was hit by a drunk driver, it is even more frustrating-a drunk driving accident is one that is completely avoidable had the driver not gotten behind the wheel intoxicated.

Statute of limitations for injuries in accident

Accidents happen unexpectedly and can impact those involved in various ways. When someone has been involved in a car accident, especially one that involves catastrophic injuries, the last thing that might be on their mind is holding the negligent party responsible for their actions. When someone has lost a loved one in a fatal accident, they may be grieving and coming to terms with their loss and dealing with the fallout of the accident-accountability may not come to mind. But the truth is that if accident victims or their family members want to hold the reckless party responsible, they may have to act fast.

Pain and suffering in a personal injury lawsuit

Ohio residents familiar with this blog may have heard of the term "pain and suffering" in connection with the damages that can be sought in a personal injury case involving an accident with a car or a truck. But when it comes to pain and suffering, people may be confused as to what it encompasses. This is because it is usually easier to calculate a figure for medical expenses based on the hospital bills, but it is more difficult to estimate the distress an accident causes.

Assisting clients with assessing fault in car crashes

As discussed in last week’s post, determining fault in a car accident is one of the first steps that need to be taken after the injuries have been assessed. As mentioned previously, simply knowing or pointing the finger at someone is not enough -- evidence in the form of eyewitness statements or police reports may be required in order to demonstrate actionable fault. But several factors can complicate determining fault and therefore settlement offers, such as if there were multiple vehicles involved in the crash or if the injured Ohio driver filing the claim also contributed to the crash.

Cincinnati woman dies in auto accident involving 3 cars

Car accidents in Cincinnati and throughout Ohio are a sad part of life. They can happen due to a reckless driver, a driver operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, through negligence and for many other reasons. When they happen, they can be severe and result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Those who have been involved in or lost a loved one in an auto accident need to get their bearings soon after the crash has happened to be able to make the important decisions that must be made after such an unfortunate occurrence.

How does drowsy driving affect car accidents?

Due to many successful awareness programs, most drivers in Ohio know about the dangers of drinking and driving. They also know about the hazards associated with driving and texting at the same time. However, there is one common cause of both car and truck accidents that often is overlooked -- drowsy driving.

Speed and impairment believed to be factors in fatal car accident

For Cincinnati people who are injured in car crashes and the loved one who are left behind after a fatality, the reality of the situation hits hard. As much as Ohioans try not to think about it, auto accidents can occur at any time for a multitude of reasons both incidental and due to recklessness or intoxication. They can result in catastrophic injuries, extensive hospital stays and even death. Often, the only solace to take is by seeking compensation through a legal filing.
