When an Ohio driver gets behind the wheel of a car, he or she takes on a certain amount of responsibility for the safety of the other drivers on the road. Everyone must drive safely and within the laws of the road; failure to uphold this responsibility could result in an accident, and the injuries that come with it. Often, these injuries can be extremely serious; though as many accident victims know all too well, even a minor accident can lead to costly medical bills and a lifetime of pain and discomfort.
Injuries from minor accidents are often all the more difficult to deal with in the months that follow. Even a low-speed rear-end accident can have serious health consequences such as lower back pain or whiplash injuries. Unfortunately, since these injuries are not outwardly visible, victims often have difficulty proving the severity of their pain and discomfort to a jury. Insurance companies know this, and take advantage of the fact to offer far lower settlements.
At The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, we know how to effectively document your injuries for trial. We also know how to counter claims that a victim’s injuries were pre-existing — another common tactic used by insurance companies. Attorney Kevin Attkisson has achieved favorable results in thousands of personal injury cases in his 16-year career, including settlements and for difficult-to-prove injuries. Throughout his career, Mr. Attkisson has also taken nearly 100 cases to trial. This experience means the insurance companies know we are not afraid to make our case in front of a jury if necessary.
