Do You Need Compensation For An Injury?
Have you been injured because of another party’s negligence? If so, you may be able to obtain compensation for the resulting medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, getting compensation that is fair is no simple matter. The negligent party’s insurance company will not simply hand it over. Instead, it may try to minimize your claim, which could leave you struggling to cover costs that should not be your responsibility.
At The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc., our attorneys have more than 100 years of collective experience. The awards received in our law firm are evidence of our superior service. We have been named among the Best Law Firms by U.S. News and World Report, and we continue to rank among the Best Lawyers® in America. In everything our attorneys do, we give 100 percent. We know how much fair compensation can mean for you in terms of helping you move on with your life after an injury. We will work hard to help you get it.
From Negotiation To Trial
Our lawyers are trial-tested. While the majority of personal injury cases are resolved through negotiation, this is something that should not be taken for granted. There are times when insurance companies push back, and if a lawyer is not prepared to meet the insurer with equal strength by arguing the case at trial, the injured party stands to lose out. We build cases with trial in mind. We make certain we have the evidence and the strategy in place to convince a judge and jury to do right by you by awarding full compensation.
We handle serious injury claims for people in Columbus, Delaware, Mt. Gilead and throughout Ohio. Matters we commonly handle include:
- Motor vehicle wrecks (car, truck and motorcycle accidents)
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Work accidents
We are prepared to stand up for people who have suffered serious injuries of all kinds, from broken bones to joint damage to spine injuries to head injuries. We also stand beside families that need to pursue wrongful death claims on behalf of lost loved ones.
What Is The Personal Injury Claim Process?
There are a few steps everyone can expect to take in their personal injury claim. A typical process includes filing a claim, collecting evidence, negotiating for a settlement, and going to trial (if negotiations cannot yield an agreeable outcome).
What Should You Do After An Accident?
If you are in a safe position after the accident, take photos and videos of the scene of the accident, collect the contact and insurance information of the other driver, and record any witness testimony. If you are injured, see a doctor so your injuries are documented. Also, be sure to call the police and your insurance to report the accident and an attorney to help maximize your compensation.
How Long Do You Have To File A Personal Injury Case?
Each state has its own law about how long an accident victim has to file a claim. In Ohio, an accident victim has up to two years to file a claim but should always file it as soon as possible.
