You have a limited time to take legal action after another driver causes an Ohio car accident. Under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 2305, you usually have two years to file a car accident lawsuit in Ohio. The timer begins counting down the day your injuries occur. If you do not file a lawsuit against the liable party by the time two years passes, you will likely lose the right to hold them responsible in court.
A car accident lawyer from Bressman Law can help you protect your right to compensation and pursue a payout to cover your damages. We offer free case reviews and initial consultations. Let us evaluate your case. Call us today at 877-538-1116 to discuss your central Ohio car accident with a member of our team.
Understanding the Statute of Limitations
Every state sets laws to limit how long you have to file a lawsuit following an accident. This limit is known as the statute of limitations. In Ohio, this deadline usually comes two years from the date of the accident.
There may be some exceptions to this rule, but in general, you have only a short time to file legal action against the at-fault party who caused your crash.
If we try to file a personal injury lawsuit after the statute of limitations expires, the court will likely throw out our case and bar us from taking any other legal action.
Act Today to Hold the At-Fault Driver Accountable
If you suffered injuries in an Ohio car accident case, it is imperative to act as soon as possible to hold the liable party accountable for their actions and recover compensation for your medical care, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering, and more. Give us a call as soon as possible after a central Ohio crash. We can even meet you at the hospital if you are undergoing treatment for your injuries.
The sooner we discuss your case, the faster we can get to work protecting your rights and fighting for compensation for your damages. Evidence often disappears in the days and weeks following an accident, so getting us on the case quickly can mean a stronger case against the at-fault party, as well. It is never too soon to get started going after the payout you need and deserve, but it may be too late if you wait until your injuries heal.
Call us today at 877-538-1116 to get started.
We Can Help You Pursue Compensation
At Bressman Law, we offer the caring support you need. We know how to win the compensation you need while you focus on healing from your injuries. From our first conversation, our team is on your side. We go to work building a solid case to support our pursuit of compensation. This requires us to:
- Visit, photograph, and document the accident scene
- Get a copy of the police report and other official documents
- Identify all potentially liable parties
- Collect any available evidence to prove negligence and liability
- Work with expert witnesses, such as accident reconstruction specialists
- Document your damages and future care needs
After we complete our investigation and build a solid case, we pursue legal action on your behalf. We can sometimes negotiate a settlement agreement in an Ohio car accident case, but if we need to file an injury lawsuit we will. Sometimes taking the case to court is the best way to pursue the compensation you need to cover all your damages.
Let us go to work on your case today. Call our office at 877-538-1116 for your complimentary initial consultation with a member of our team.
