Were you or a loved one injured due to another party’s negligence? If so, let a lawyer serving Columbus from Bressman Law handle your personal injury case. We can file your case under Ohio’s laws regarding personal injury law, investigate your circumstances, and recover compensation for your losses.
Your time to act may be limited by timelines, depending on how long ago your accident happened. We encourage you to consider your legal options today.
Our Personal Injury Practice Areas
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. The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) says that all drivers are required to have insurance.
So, to secure compensation, we will first start by filing your claim with the liable insurer. We can file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver if this does not work out.
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 a violation of 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 have a responsibility to keep 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
- Determine the hazard that harmed you
- Interview witnesses
- Review your medical records
We handle other types of practice areas, like motorcycle accidents, product liability cases, and instances of wrongful death.
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 this 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 quickly close out a case. We want our clients to get the money they deserve, not the money they can get right now. We have the resources and experience 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 glacial, but there’s no reason to have to play phone tag with your 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 claim, so you’ll know what to expect and what is causing any delays in your case.
Examples of Your Recoverable Damages
The value of your case will depend on a variety of things. These might include the types of injuries you suffered, the extent of your suffering, and the length of your recovery period.
Some examples of damages that we can recover for you include:
- Property damage costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning ability
- Healthcare expenses
We can also recover things like loss of consortium, loss of parental guidance, and funeral expenses.
We’ve Secured Millions for Injured People
Our team knows what goes into building a successful personal injury case. Through our problem-solving techniques, years of experience, and network of consultants, we are confident that we can handle your legal matters.
Some outcomes of the cases that 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 Long You Have to File Your Case
Per Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §2305.10, you generally have two years to file your lawsuit. 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
Your lawyer serving Columbus will be able to determine how long you have to take action in your personal injury case.
