Proving Negligence and Liability after a Worthington, OH Car Accident
We cannot hold the other driver liable for your injuries unless we can prove they acted negligently and caused your accident and the resulting injuries. To this end, we will thoroughly investigate your accident to learn as much as we can about what happened, why it happened, and who caused it.
As a part of this investigation, we will:
- Obtain a copy of the police report and other pertinent documents
- Review witness statements and conduct interviews if needed
- Inquire about a video of the crash from local businesses
- Survey and document the scene of the accident
- Enlist the help of accident reconstruction specialists to understand your crash
- Inspect and analyze the damage to all vehicles involved
- Collect documentation of your expenses and losses
We will use the evidence we collect during this investigation to help us prove:
- The motorist had a legal responsibility to act or not act in a certain way
- He failed to uphold this responsibility, often by breaking a traffic law
- His actions caused your accident
- You suffered injuries and financial damages
By building a strong case against the at-fault driver, we will be ready to file an insurance claim or injury lawsuit and present our argument to the judge and jury.
We Can Help You Fight for Compensation after an Ohio Car Crash
There are two ways we may be able to help you recover compensation for your expenses and losses after a Worthington car accident. The first option is to file an insurance claim and negotiate a fair settlement based on the facts of your case. Another alternative is to file a lawsuit in an Ohio civil court and ask the judge to determine if you deserve compensation for your accident damages and the value of compensation.
In most cases, we begin with an insurance claim and only resort to litigation if necessary. This scenario gives us more control over the payout, and it is often possible for us to negotiate a fair settlement during this process. It also costs significantly less time and money, something we know matters to our clients.
After we complete our investigation, we can begin the claims process. The steps include:
- Sending a demand letter to the insurance company outlining our case and your damages
- Considering its counter-offer, potentially rejecting it and requesting a higher settlement
- Continuing settlement negotiations until we reach a fair settlement agreement or it becomes apparent there is no way to agree
Bressman Law has the resources to manage any case we take on. If we cannot negotiate a fair settlement agreement, or if the insurer denies our claim, we will not hesitate to file an injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. We will argue your case in court, asking the judge to award a fair payout based on the facts we presented.
