Most of us will be involved in a motor vehicle accident of some kind during our lifetimes, and many of those accidents will result in serious personal injuries or death. As common as motor vehicle accidents are, the process of recovering just compensation is not simple and straightforward. An Ohio motor vehicle lawyer can help you get the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries and losses.
Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Ohio motor vehicle lawyer H. Lee Thompson handles all types of motor vehicle accident cases including:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents resulting in wrongful death
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, damage to your vehicle, and more.
A defective vehicle can cause an accident or can cause injuries to be more severe in the event of an accident. If a defective vehicle caused or contributed to your injuries, your motor vehicle accident lawsuit will involve product liability. The vehicle manufacturer, parts manufacturer, and others may be held responsible for your injuries
When a roadway defect, such as a malfunction traffic signal or missing warning sign, causes an accident, the entity responsible for the design, construction, and/or maintenance of the roadway can be held financially responsible. In most cases, a government entity is the responsible party. That means that different rules and procedures will apply to your case and typically involves a time limit for filing a notice of intent to sue which is much shorter than the standard statute of limitations.

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.
