Were You Injured?
If you suffered an injury in your car accident, you need to talk to an attorney. Soft tissue and bones in most cases will heal, but they rarely return to their pre-accident condition. Sometimes this matters. Injuries can become progressive, irritated by your work or other actions you perform every day. You likely have–or will—lose work time.
A personal injury attorney can help you understand the compensation you are due after your injury and work to ensure you get fair treatment.
Is the Other Driver Disputing Fault?
If the other driver is disputing who is at fault for the accident, you should talk to a lawyer, especially if the other driver has one. Ohio’s system is based on comparative negligence—you only get compensated for the amount the other driver is determined to be responsible for the accident, so shifting fault even a little can affect your compensation. If you are more at fault than the other motorist you get nothing.
Is Your Settlement Suspicious?
Have you been offered a settlement by your insurance company that doesn’t seem right? Did you get it too quickly? Is it too little? Does it cover all your harms ? If you have any doubts about your insurance settlement, getting a free review by a lawyer will at least put your mind at ease.

Is Your Insurance Company Stalling Your Settlement?
If, on the other hand, your insurance company is taking a long time to offer you a settlement, it’s time to act. You only have a limited time to pursue a lawsuit, and your insurance company may hope that by delaying it will take away your option to sue.
