AUTO

ACCIDENTS

I have been representing auto accident victims for over 30 years. If you are injured in an auto accident and the accident is not your fault, there are a few very important things you should do. One, make sure you call the police after the accident has happened.  Two, exchange your name, number and insurance information with the other driver. Three, obtain medical treatment if you are injured.  Four, call me so we can set up an appointment to go over the accident and your injuries in detail.

7 STEPS TO TAKE IF YOU GET INTO ACCIDENT

 

SLIP & FALL /

TRIP & FALL

Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall cases in Ohio are among the hardest to pursue for many reasons. Often times the insurance companies will argue that the injured person should have seen the water on the floor or should have seen the pallet they tripped on. Each slip & fall or trip & fall claim is very fact intensive and unique. There are many attorneys who will not consider these types of cases. I represent injured clients in both slip & fall claims and trip & fall claims on a regular basis.

 

DOG BITES

In Ohio an owner of a dog is strictly liable if the dog bites another person and the injured person is not teasing the dog or trespassing on the owners property. If the dog has bitten someone before, you can claim punitive damages as well. I have represented people in dog bite claims that range from minor injuries to disfiguring injuries and scar. Please contact me for a free consultation.

WRONGFUL DEATH

The death of a loved one from a motor vehicle or other accident is life changing and life lasting for the spouse, children and other family members. Please contact me should you ever be in this nightmare of a situation.

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

We all drive on the highways and see trucks/eighteen wheelers do many dangerous and crazy things. Trucking accidents often cause great harm due to the size and weight of the cab and trailer. Truck drivers and trucking companies have many rules and regulations they must obey (i.e how many hours they can drive in a 24 hour period, how much their load may weigh, etc.) Unfortunately, too often these rules and regulations are ignored.  Please contact me if you or someone you know has been injured in a trucking accident.

BICYCLE ACCIDENTS

I have been riding road bikes off and on for many years. Riding a road bike is a great workout and stress reliever for me.  Unfortunately, no matter how careful one is, all it takes is one mistake by the driver of a  car or truck, for a bicycle rider to be severely injured. Ride safely and if someone injures you, please contact me.

UNINSURED MOTORISTS

In Ohio, all licensed drivers are required to have auto insurance.  Unfortunately, there are too many people who drive without auto insurance. That is why it is so important to have uninsured motorists coverage on your own auto insurance policy. If you are hit by an uninsured motorist, you can make a claim on your own uninsured motorist coverage. You should recover the same damages from your own insurance company that you would have if the other driver had insurance. Then your own insurance company can if they so choose, go after the uninsured drive for the damages that they have paid to you.
