Following a car accident caused by another driver, take these steps to request and secure an Ohio car accident settlement from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
You will notice that aside from the two-year statute of limitations on filing car accident insurance claims, this overview of the Ohio car accident settlement process does not include a schedule. Some cases settle quickly, but others drag on for many years. One of the best reasons to hire and rely on a car accident lawyer is that doing so allows you to live your life while your attorney takes care of the legal details regarding your claims.
Be aware, too, that the car accident settlement process outlined here describes a case where one at-fault driver hits and injures another driver, and the victim survives with physical injuries from which he or she can recover. The insurance claim process will become more complicated when the victim is a child when the crash inflicts traumatic brain injuries, when more than one driver is to blame, or when the victim dies. An experienced car accident lawyer will be able to answer specific questions about these types of cases.
