Most people don’t know how to get their lives back on track after a serious car accident. Our mission is to create individualized plans for each family to get them the help they need to get back to health quicker, get the bills paid, and live the lives they want to live.
According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, nearly 100 Ohioans die every month in motor vehicle accidents, and an average of 1000 a month suffer serious and incapacitating driving injuries that require long-term medical care and protracted periods of recovery. Obviously, serious injuries suffered in car accidents can also cripple the victim’s ability to earn a living, care for themselves, and support their spouses and children. This is why we buy car insurance.
Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always prove to be as good as their word. In many cases, insurance companies in Ohio will conduct investigations into car accident claims that are designed solely to reduce their liability in car accidents. When the insurance companies succeed in these efforts, car accident injury victims can be exposed to years of economic hardship, inadequate healthcare and a greatly diminished quality of life.

What Could Cause a Car Accident?
It can be helpful to group car accidents into one of 2 categories:
- The 1st category -- Includes accidents that occur when a defendant violates a traffic law that applies to all motorists, such as laws that set speed limits, govern when a person may change lanes, or require a driver to yield. A driver who violates these laws and causes an accident is likely liable for any resulting damage.
- The 2nd category -- Could be caused by a driver’s carelessness. Drivers who talk with a hands-free device, eat behind the wheel, or have a conversation with a passenger are not breaking the law. However, any of these activities may distract a driver and draw their attention away from the road, resulting in a collision.
