When a driver acts in a careless, reckless, or unreasonable way, it puts the occupants of other vehicles at risk. If you suffered injuries because of one of these negligent drivers, Ohio law may allow you to recover compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. This is possible by filing a liability auto insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
A car accident lawyer serving Grove City can help you pursue compensation. If you believe another driver caused your injury, the team from Bressman Law can explain your rights and help you understand your options for going after the compensation you deserve.

Recoverable Damages in a Grove City Car Accident Case
We cannot tell you how much your case is worth before we conduct our investigation into your accident. Every car accident – and the damages sustained – are so different. There is no way to put an accurate price on your case without first understanding the full range of your expenses and losses related to the crash, your injuries, and your treatment.
We can, however, help you understand the types of damages our team often helps accident victims collect when we reach a settlement agreement or win a lawsuit. This includes:
- Medical treatment
- Prescription medications
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost wages for your time away from work
- Diminished earning capacity if you cannot return to work
- Loss of services
- Repair or replacement of your car
- Other property damages
- Rental car costs
- Out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering
- Other emotional losses
In some cases, you may also be eligible for additional damages not included on this list. When we investigate your case, we will also collect documentation of your full range of damages.
This may include receipts, bills, and other paperwork. We may also partner with medical experts and others who can testify to the serious nature of your injuries, your prognosis, and any likely ongoing care or future care needs.
Let Us Help You Hold the At-Fault Driver or Another Liable Party Accountable
We focus on each case we handle and ensure every client gets the personalized experience they deserve.
We have the resources and know-how to prove fault in your case. This means you get a thorough investigation, a solid case, and aggressive representation without getting lost in the shuffle. With the Bressman Law team on your side, you can expect us to:

- Enlist the help of accident reconstruction specialists and other experts when necessary
- File an insurance claim and attempt to negotiate a fair settlement
- Pursue a personal injury lawsuit if necessary
While we may be able to settle your car accident case without having to go to court, sometimes the insurance company refuses a fair settlement or denies our claim.
If this occurs in your case, we may need to file a personal injury lawsuit. We can litigate any case we handle if it is in your best interest. We can walk you through this process and will ensure you know what to expect every step of the way.

Act Quickly Before Time Runs Out
It is important to reach out to us after your crash before time runs out. Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10 generally gives us two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who caused it in most cases. If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you generally have the same amount of time, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
If you fail to meet these deadlines, you run the risk of losing your chance to hold a liable party responsible for your losses. The court may dismiss your case once the deadline passes.
In addition, the evidence in a car accident may disappear or become harder to get after the crash. The sooner we can get started on the case, the more evidence we can potentially recover.
Make Sure You Seek Medical Treatment
One of the things you can do to protect your right to compensation is seeing a doctor immediately after the accident. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, we need medical documentation to link the accident to your losses.
You may also be surprised that a seemingly minor injury can cause medical complications down the road. You will want your potential settlement to reflect any future losses you incur due to the accident.
