Why You Need Us
You may not think you need an attorney right away. In a situation where the facts are clear, and the insurance companies agree to pay what is owed, you might not have to file anything against the other party. Simple cases like these happen every day and are settled between the parties.
For instance, if you were sitting in your car in the parking lot and another driver backed into you, the only thing you would need to do would be to send their insurer your medical and repair bills and wait for payment. There is no question about who is at fault.
However, if there is any question of fault or fact, the insurance company may refuse to pay without more proof, or they may allege that you are responsible. Suppose that the other driver said you had started to back out of the parking space, and you backed into them, so you were responsible for the accident or partially responsible. Now there are facts in dispute. Now you need an attorney.
Ohio’s statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years. That means you have two years from the date of injury to file a legal action against the party or entity who injured you. If you miss that deadline, you can lose your right to pursue compensation in court. There are ways to extend that deadline, but you would need to speak with an attorney to see if you qualify. It’s better to contact an attorney right away and learn your options.
Another consideration is how fault is determined. Ohio courts follow a contributory fault rule when determining fault. This means that you can still recover compensation for your accident if you were partially responsible for the accident, but only if you are less than 50 percent responsible. If you are 51 percent or more at fault, you cannot recover anything.
For these reasons, having an experienced legal team helping you with your case is essential. The processes of filing the case on time, handling the discovery and evidence needed to prove your case, and negotiating with the other party’s attorney and the insurance company require someone with the legal knowledge to protect your rights and get the best outcome for you.
