Ohio Personal Injury Cases: 3 Things to Know
IF YOU have been hurt in a car accident or were hurt by the negligence of another, there are some important things to know. First, the statute of limitations on most personal injury cases in Ohio is two years. If you do not file a case within the statute of limitations, your case may be dismissed, resulting in no compensation for your injuries and medical bills. It is important to call an attorney soon after your accident to avoid missing deadlines under the statute of limitations.
Second, you need to collect and retain as much evidence about your case as possible from the very beginning. If possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident, damaged vehicles or damaged property, and photos of your injuries. Keep copies of everything you receive from the police department, your doctors, and the insurance companies. Write down important dates, times, and treatments you receive as a result of your injury.
Third, do not discuss your personal injury case with anyone, including the insurance company, until you have talked to a lawyer. The insurance companies are professionals who negotiate personal injury cases every day. You should have an experienced professional working for you, too.
If you’ve been injured, you should focus on your health and family. Entrust your permanent injury case to your highly qualified lawyers who will help you fight the insurance companies and receive the compensation you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, and disruptions in your life.
