You were going about your day, minding our own business when — while out and about in your car — your vehicle was struck by another automobile while in an intersection. You were hurt and had to be transported to a medical facility for treatment. Your life has just not been the same since. If the other driver is believed to be even partially responsible for your losses, you may be entitled to seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim against him or her in an Ohio civil court.

Car accidents happen every single day. Some of them are only fender benders with no injuries, some result in minor to moderate injuries, and then there are those that have serious or even fatal outcomes. You feel lucky to be alive after your accident, but you are now left dealing with emotional, physical and financial losses that are taking a significant toll on your daily life and on the lives of your family members. It is amazing how quickly life can change in the blink of an eye.

You expect insurance to take care of you and get you the money you need to get the care you require. Unfortunately, you are finding this is not the case. They are trying to settle with you for less than you feel is fair. What can you do?

You are not obligated to take a settlement offer from an insurance provider. You may have the right to fight for more. If you are not sure what to do, legal counsel can offer guidance on the matter. If pursuing a personal injury claim in an Ohio civil court will better serve your interests, legal counsel can help you do just that.
