Ohio Car Accident Lawyers
Anyone who has been injured in a car accident should contact an experienced car accident lawyer as soon as possible. If the driver who caused the accident was reckless, irresponsible or otherwise negligent, then you may be entitled to recover compensations for the injuries and damages you sustained regardless of the type of car accident.
If the other driver carried insurance, then you may be able to negotiate a settlement to reimburse you for the accident. Insurers have little incentive to pay, so a car accident lawyer can negotiate settlements that require insurance companies to pay a fair and reasonable settlement. If the insurance refuses to pay, or will not pay adequately to compensate you for your losses, then you may be able to pursue a claim through the courts.
