Services Our Ohio Law Firm Provides
Here at Bressman Law, we pride ourselves on transparency. From the moment we take on your case, we want you to know what to expect.
We can work to resolve your case by:
Determining the Cause of Your Accident
When we approach the insurance adjuster with your case, we want to have all of the information that we need. One important aspect of your claim will be how your accident happened. By viewing traffic camera footage, recording witness testimony, and visiting the accident scene, we can learn more about the facts of your case. Once we understand how your accident happened, we can determine the at-fault party and pursue compensation on your behalf.
Calculating the Cost of Your Accident-Related Expenses
To help you recover fair compensation, we will need to calculate the cost of your expenses. We will need to add up the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and property damage costs to learn more about the value of your economic damages. To calculate your pain and suffering cost, we will need to examine your present quality of life.
At the end of our partnership, we want you to rest assured that we recovered compensation for all of your collision-related losses. You can learn more about the possible value of your case by calling Bressman Law today.
Negotiating with the Liable Party
If you were injured due to another party’s negligence, liability for your damages might rest on their insurance carrier. We will start your claim by sending a demand letter to the insurer. This letter will outline the nature of your condition, the cost of your damages, and other pieces of required information.
How the insurance company responds will dictate our course of action. If they accept your claim, we can resolve your case without filing a lawsuit. However, if they deny or lowball your claim, we can file a lawsuit in civil court.
Filing Your Lawsuit Within the State’s Statute of Limitations
Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10 says that you typically have a two-year period to file your car accident lawsuit. Both your legal team and the insurance company are aware of this deadline. The insurance company may delay your claim by refusing to answer your phone calls, passing your claim around to different adjusters, or denying you compensation altogether. They want the statute of limitations to expire on your case so that they can use this against you.
Our team knows when it’s time to take a case to court. Not only can we file your case within the appropriate deadline, but we can also cross-examine witnesses, speak with consultants, and present the details of your case before a judge.

A Dublin Contusions and Lacerations Lawyer Works on a Contingency-Fee Basis

Basically, it means that you are not responsible for any legal fees until the conclusion of your case. Bressman Law works on a contingency-fee basis. You do not have to pay your lawyer until your case is resolved. Even then, compensation for your lawyer’s services comes out of the money they get for you.
Our team wants to provide help to those who need it, regardless of their financial resources. We encourage you to get in touch with our firm today to learn more.

Proving Negligence in a Dublin Car Accident Case
To help you recover compensation for your damages, we will need to establish how another party acted negligently. The evidence we find will need to prove that you were hurt because another party acted carelessly or recklessly.
Proving negligence requires:
- Establishing a duty of care- We must show that the other party in your case had a responsibility to drive with reasonable prudence.
- Demonstrating breach of duty of care- Once we establish that the other party owed you a duty of care, we must show that they failed to uphold this obligation.
- Proving causation- We must show how the other party caused your accident. For instance, if they were driving under the influence of alcohol, you could assert that their intoxication caused the collision.
- Showing financial damages- By using your medical bills, pay stubs, and property damage invoices, we can prove that you suffered financial losses because the other party caused the accident.
Once we prove that another party’s negligence resulted in your losses, we can advance your case. As noted, Ohio’s statute of limitations generally gives you two years to file a lawsuit. You may not have long to act under this deadline. To protect your legal rights, call Bressman Law today.
