Motor vehicle crashes constitute the second-leading cause of accidental death for Ohio residents of all ages. Additionally, traffic crashes are the third most common cause of traumatic brain injuries in the state.
The victims are innocent drivers, passengers old and young, bike riders, and pedestrians. Nonfatal injuries range from broken bones and dislocated joints to whiplash, internal bleeding, and amputations. Even low-speed collisions can leave people with lingering problems like concussions and muscle tears. The total statewide costs attributable to long- and short-term disabilities from traffic crashes is incalculable.
As motor vehicle accident lawyers based in Columbus, attorneys with Agee Clymer take pride in fighting for crash victims all across Ohio. We handle insurance claims and civil lawsuits arising from personal injuries and wrongful deaths. We also offer free consultations, and we do not charge clients unless we help them secure an insurance settlement or jury award.
Succeeding with a claim or lawsuit against the driver who causes a crash in Ohio requires doing all of the following:
Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and running a red light are just three examples of negligent and reckless actions by drivers. Proving that you suffered injuries that required expensive medical treatment and took an emotional toll requires presenting health records, doctor bills, and testimony from individuals who can attest to your physical and mental state.
In addition to negotiating with insurance companies or representing clients in court, our Columbus motor vehicle accident lawyers partner with crash victims to obtain official accident reports from police, arrange for independent investigations of crash scenes and any commercial or emergency vehicles involved, and hire experts to conduct analyses, prepare reports and testify at trial. Our personal injury and wrongful death attorneys also ensure that clients can protect their privacy while sharing the necessary amount of medical information with insurance claims adjusters.
Importantly, we make ourselves available to handle correspondence and take phone calls from the insurance company. Insurers pressure crash victims to accept quick settlements or drop claims altogether. We can step up for our client and give them the time and space they need to recover from their injuries and trauma.
Last, we advise clients on what represents a fair settlement or award for their existing and future medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Each case is unique, and calculating the amount that the at-fault driver owes in compensation can be quite complicated.
We take all types of motor vehicle accident cases, whether the crash involved a car, truck, motorcycle, bus, emergency vehicle, pedestrian, or bike rider. To speak with a lawyer, call (614) 221-3318.
