While you may not need a lawyer for a minor car wreck in Ohio, we recommend letting an wreck attorney handle or at least look over your case before you agree to a settlement. You can try to manage the claims process on your own, but there is no reason to.
Serving Ohio accident injury victims for more than 30 years, car accident attorney David Bressman knows how to identify accident-related expenses and losses. The Bressman Law team can often identify many damages the victim overlooked, preventing them from leaving thousands of dollars on the negotiation table.
We Can Make Navigating the Process Easier
In theory, filing an insurance claim and recovering the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and repair your vehicle after a minor accident should be an easy and straightforward process. However, filing a claim rarely goes as smoothly as it should. You will likely encounter some hurdles and red tape, and you might also find yourself dealing with insurance company tactics as it tries to reduce the compensation you can recover.
With a lawyer on your side, you do not have to worry about any of this. Your attorney and their team will handle every step of the process while you focus on healing and getting back to work or school. At Bressman Law, we know what to expect and how to counter any tricks the insurer tries to pull. Let us fight for your payout while you work on getting back to normal.
We Can Identify All Available Damages
It is easier than you realize to underestimate your expenses and losses related to a car accident. No matter how minor the damage or your injuries may seem, you probably have additional losses that can add up to thousands of dollars. Through our experience handling these cases, we know where to look to identify common damages.
Some of the damages we may be able to identify, quantify, and recover if we can negotiate a settlement or win a verdict in your case include:
- Medical care costs
- Lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity
- Repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Rental car costs
- Other expenses related to your injuries or accident
- Pain and suffering damages
- Mental anguish
Minor Accidents Can Still Lead to Complex Cases
In some cases, seemingly minor car accidents can turn into complex cases when you try to recover the compensation you need to pay your bills, make up for lost wages, and repair your vehicle. The insurance company may deny your claim, try to blame all or some of the accident on you, or refuse to give you a fair offer that would cover your expenses and losses. Any of these make it more difficult to get the payout you need.
In any of these situations, an attorney would be able to help you fight to pursue the maximum payout available to you. Per Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10, we generally have two years from the date of an accident to take the case to court. It can take a while to get to the bottom of what happened and collect as much as evidence as possible to prove your case, but we can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
