Columbus Personal Injury Attorneys
Generally, when you're out and about, the people you interact with owe you a duty of care. For example, if you go to the store, the merchant must provide a safe and well-lit environment free of hazards or dangerous conditions. Similarly, when you're on the road, other drivers are expected to obey traffic laws and take necessary precautions so as not to endanger other motorists, cyclists, or pedestrians. Unfortunately, some people may act negligently or commit intentional acts that breach their duty, causing accidents that result in serious injury, and in some cases, death.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by another person, you may have the right to pursue a personal injury claim and seek compensation for the harm you suffered. At HMW Law, our personal injury lawyers in Columbus are here to provide the compassionate legal representation you need to navigate the complexities of your case. We can do all the legwork for you, building a compelling case and helping to relieve some of the burdens associated with your case.
Our team can work toward recovering just compensation on your behalf. Speak with us by calling (216) 220-6776 today.
Do I Have a Case?
If you have been injured due to another's negligence, you have a case. Due to the serious and sensitive nature of your case, we advise you against navigating the complexities of the legal system alone. When you hire a skilled attorney from our firm, you increase your chances of securing a favorable case outcome.
What Damages Am I Entitled to Recover?
The compensation you're entitled to recover is heavily dependent upon the injuries you've sustained. Our clients suffer an injury and require medical treatment. Therefore, past and future medical treatment and lost wages are recoverable. In addition, punitive damages and general damages such as pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and inconveniences due to the injury are recoverable.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
The statute of limitations in Ohio for personal injury claims is two years. This means that you have two years from date of injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. However, if your claim is against a government entity or for a medical malpractice case, the statute of limitations is much shorter. Ohio does allow exceptions to this rule in specific situations.
What Is a Fault State?
Ohio is a "fault" state when it comes to car accident liability which means that the party responsible for the accident is responsible for paying damages, although the negligent party's insurance company is the one who most often actually pays for the damages. In comparison, a no-fault state is one where an injury victim's own personal injury protection, or PIP, insurance covers their financial loss. PIP insurance is a requirement in not-fault states but is not in fault states.
