Were you injured in a car that was involved in an accident with a much larger vehicle? As the occupant of a passenger vehicle, you could be entitled to financial recovery from the at-fault driver of the truck, bus, or other large vehicle that collided with your passenger car. That means the at-fault driver could be compelled to pay your medical expenses and compensate you for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries.
In addition to these expenses, you might also be able to collect compensation for income you lose if your injuries prevent you from doing your job. To be successful, you must meet certain criteria (and may have to comply with Ohio’s statute of limitations).
A Columbus passenger vehicle accident lawyer can help ensure your claim is complete and can help determine the types and amounts of compensation you might be able to receive. Contact Bressman Law by calling (614) 538-1116 immediately.
Collect Compensation After a Vehicle Collision in Columbus
Ohio State Highway Patrol statistics report 64,058 vehicle accidents led to 5,547 injuries and 505 fatalities in 2019. If you were injured in a car accident like any of these, you deserve financial compensation for your injuries. There are also financial consequences for the at-fault driver if a member of your family was injured or killed in a collision with a much larger vehicle.
If another car or a large truck, bus, or delivery van collided with the car in which you were travelling, you may be entitled to recover the cost of treating your injuries. Your recovery can encompass more than medical bills, however, it can include many other expenses and financial losses you should not have to pay for out of your own pocket.

- Crash reports
- Medical records
- Medical bills

Start Seeking Financial Compensation as Soon as Possible
When you are injured in a passenger vehicle versus a large truck or bus accident, the role of time in your pursuit of financial recovery might not be the first thing on your mind. Your first priorities are sure to be your physical recovery and finding out how to recover from the financial impact of your injuries. You should know, though, that time can play a more important role in your injuries than you might initially think.
In addition to the time it takes to recover from your physical injuries and to get back on your feet, your lawsuit against the at-fault driver also has a time component. In Columbus, Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10 generally restricts your time to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver to two years from the date of the accident. Avoid missing this deadline or running out of time to file your claim by contacting our team as soon after you are injured as possible.
