Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car & Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Columbus Ohio

Have you or a loved one been injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence? There’s no guarantee that the other driver’s car insurance company will justly compensate you for your injury. Insurance companies frequently try to minimize settlement claims, which is bad news for motor vehicle accident victims.

If your injury is minor, hiring a personal injury lawyer may not be worthwhile because it won’t justify the legal costs. However, you should consider hiring a accidents lawyer in Ohio to represent you if any of the following factors apply to your situation: 

    • Your injuries are serious and have long-term effects
    • The other driver involved is uninsured or underinsured
    • The claims adjuster is pressuring you to agree to a settlement quickly
    • You and the other driver are in dispute about who is at fault
    • You aren’t being compensated fairly for current and future medical expenses

 

Motor vehicle & car accident cases aren’t always simple to resolve. Many cases involve complex issues regarding insurance law and evidence. An attorney who is experienced at handling motor vehicle & car accident cases can help you determine your legal rights. A car accident lawyer may also be able to help you recover monetary damages for pain and suffering, payment or reimbursement of medical expenses, and lost wages.

 

Determining Who Is at Fault for the Accident

In most motor vehicle accident cases, the main issue is determining which driver is at fault. If one driver is negligent, he or she will be at fault. In some cases, however, someone who wasn’t driving or even present in the car at the time of the accident could be at fault. For example, if an employee causes an accident while driving the company car, the employer would be held responsible. Determining who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident means determining who was negligent. A finding of negligence may be based on the following: 

      • Careless driving
      • Failure to follow the speed limit
      • Failure to obey traffic signals
      • Distracted driving
      • Texting while driving
      • Talking on a cell phone while driving
      • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol

 

Improperly constructed roads, tunnels, embankments, or exits may also cause motor vehicle accidents. If a roadway has a defective design, the designer or builder may be liable for the injuries it causes. Builders may also be held responsible for injuries caused by construction accidents, loose construction materials, roadway debris, and inadequate safety.

 

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Unless you’re a personal injury lawyer or law student, you’re probably unfamiliar with all of the laws pertaining to personal injury claims. If you don’t know what you’re legally entitled to, an insurance adjuster could take advantage of the situation. Many insurance companies profit by undercompensating injured car accident victims and automatically offer a lower settlement to a victim who isn’t represented by a personal injury attorney. A personal injury lawyer in Ohio can interpret and apply personal injury laws in Ohio to your case, negotiate fair compensation, and provide you with fair representation in court.
