Personal Injury Practice Areas We Offer to Columbus Accident Victims
We believe that if you were injured due to another party’s negligence, you deserve compensation. To secure a financial recovery for your losses, we will investigate your case, negotiate a settlement, and handle all necessary communications.
Some of our law firm’s practice areas include:
If you or a loved one was hurt in an auto accident, let us handle your case. We will first start by examining your insurance coverage options. All drivers must have insurance, per Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
So, to secure compensation, we will first start by filing your claim with the liable insurer. If this does not work out, we can file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
In this instance, you could hold more than one party accountable for your losses, like the truck’s driver and their employer. We can determine whether your accident was caused by violating the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) mandates.
If you were injured while you were on (or near) a construction site, our team can explore your legal options. We can determine whether another party’s negligence resulted in your losses and take action from there.
If an aggressive dog bit you, our team could use the following information to build your case:
- The dog’s veterinary records
- Testimony from witnesses
- Information from your doctor
- Photos of your injuries
If your accident was recorded on film, we could also use this information to prove the cause of your injury.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners are responsible for keeping guests safe, regardless of whether they own public or private property. If you slipped and fell on another party’s premises in Columbus, your personal injury lawyer can:
- Visit the accident scene

Bressman Law Is Different from Other Personal Injury Firms
Bressman Law has served the needs of injured people in Columbus for over 30 years. Our methods set us apart from other personal injury lawyers in the Ohio area. Here are some of the things that set us apart:
We Take Our Time with Your Case
First, we don’t negotiate settlements just to close out a case quickly. We want our clients to get the money they deserve, not the money they can get now. We have the resources and knowledge to face insurance companies in the courtroom.
We Pride Ourselves on Communication
Second, we regularly communicate with our clients. One of the biggest frustrations of legal clients is a lack of communication from their lawyers. Yes, the legal system is sometimes slow-moving, but there’s no reason to have to play phone tag with your personal injury lawyer when they are supposed to be serving you.
We have a unique workflow in place that will keep you in the loop of what’s going on with your case.
We Will Keep You Updated on Your Case’s Progression
Furthermore, we also share all documentation with you as part of our transparency policy. These documents will let you know where we are with your personal injury claim, so you’ll know what to expect and what is causing any delays in your case.

We’ve Secured Millions for Injured People
Our team knows what goes into building a successful personal injury case. We are confident we can handle your legal matters through our problem-solving techniques, years of experience, and network of consultants.
Some outcomes of the cases we have handled include:
- A $1.6 million-dollar award for a family of four hurt in an auto accident
- $850,000 for a motorcycle accident claimant
- $450,000 for a truck accident claimant who needed multiple surgeries
We were able to settle many of these cases without having to go to court.
How We Were Able To Secure These Favorable Financial Awards for Our Injury Clients
To recover the settlements and awards above, our team needed to prove negligence. Negligence includes four elements:
- Duty of care: Another party had a duty to behave with prudence and prioritize your safety.
- Breach of duty: They failed to behave according to the state and local law and acted negligently.
- Causation: This negligence triggered an accident, which caused your injuries.
- Damages: You sustained damages. We can prove these losses with evidence like receipts and eyewitness testimony.
Our Columbus personal injury lawyers will work to apply these elements to your case so you can recover the compensation you need.
Our Former Clients Have Talked About Their Experiences of Working with Our Injury Firm
No one can speak to how we serve our clients better than our former clients. Here’s what a handful of them have had to say:
“We were put in a terrible situation due to the incompetence of another attorney. David was the only one who would help us. He fixed the problems, turned things around and got us a settlement better than expected. His dedication, work ethic and heart are above reproach…” – Jerry F.
“I was not looking forward to engaging a lawyer to handle my car accident case. Fortunately a friend recommended David and I couldn’t have been happier. He took care of everything and explained the process in an easy to understand way. I’m happy to have this case closed…” – Aaron A.
Bressman Law will approach your claim or lawsuit with the care and attention you deserve and base our case strategy on your individual damages.
How Long You Have to File Your Personal Injury Case
If you decide to take legal action against the liable party, you must remember you have a limited time. Per Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, you generally have two years to file your personal injury lawsuit. If you’re filing a wrongful death lawsuit, Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02 also imposes a two-year deadline. However, this timeline may not necessarily apply to you.
How long you have to take action will depend on:
- When your accident happened
- How old you were when you got hurt
- When you discovered your injuries
In any event, it’s best to get started on your case right away. These deadlines are strictly enforced. Failure to comply with the deadline could result in the courts denying your case altogether. Your personal injury lawyer serving Columbus, OH, will be able to determine how long you have to take action in your personal injury case.
