Auto accidents are a leading cause of death in this country, and those who survive often suffer life-changing injuries. Even a low-speed crash can cause serious and debilitating injuries. If you have been injured in an auto accident, our Ohio auto accident lawyer can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
One of the main purposes of auto insurance is meant to ensure that auto accident victims are compensated for their injuries, since most individuals cannot afford to pay for the medical bills and other losses out-of-pocket.
Unfortunately, the insurance companies fight hard to avoid paying or to pay far less than they should. Even your own insurance company cannot be trusted to do the right thing.
An Ohio auto accident lawyer of The Thompson Law Firm can stand up to the insurance companies on your behalf, and help you recover the full compensation to which you are entitled.
Auto Accident Compensation
Auto accident compensation can include:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Past, current, and future lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of the capacity to enjoy life
- Wrongful death
If You Were Partly at Fault for Your Auto Accident
Never assume that you were to blame for your accident, even if it may seem that you were. A thorough investigation by The Thompson Law Firm may reveal contributing factors that you were not able to observe at the time of your accident.
However, even if you were partially at fault, you may be able to recover substantial compensation for your injuries. As long as you were less than 50% at fault, you are allowed to recover compensation under Ohio law, but your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of blame.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident in Ohio, please call our auto accident lawyer at 1-614-461-9000 or toll free 1-800-461-9013 or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
