More than 250,000 car accidents are reported on Ohio’s roadways each year. These crashes can lead to serious and painful injuries to victims, including head injuries, broken bones, neck and spinal cord trauma, and other life-altering conditions. The injuries suffered in an Ohio car accident often require extensive medical treatment, including hospitalization and multiple follow-up visits. The impact of an car accident in Ohio can affect you financially, physically, and emotionally.

Under our state’s law, if you were not at fault or only partially at fault for the accident you could be entitled to compensation for your losses. While Ohio law is generally favorable for crash victims, the law is also complicated and has many traps. Failing to follow the proper procedure can seriously jeopardize your chances of a recovery. It is also important to understand the role of the insurance company and how to negotiate a claim with an adjuster.
