Warren, OH Personal Injury Attorney
Personal Injury Claims in Ohio
Most personal injury claims are brought about by motor vehicle crashes, but any kind of accident can inspire serious financial consequences. When you need compensation after an injury, Urban Co., L.P.A. is here for you.
We can help you recover compensation after an accident and cope with whiplash and other soft-tissue injuries.
How Common Are Personal Injury Cases?
Each year more than 39.5 million people seek medical care for unintentional injuries. Many of these individuals choose to file personal injury lawsuits to help them move forward, and most of these lawsuits settle outside of court.
In simpler terms, personal injury claims are very common, but they usually don’t make it to trial. Often, attorneys help injured individuals negotiate settlements with insurance companies.
Filing a Claim
When you’re ready to pursue justice, the first step is a free consultation with Urban Co., L.P.A. We will evaluate the details of your case and help you determine what kind of compensation you may be entitled to.
From there, we can send a demand letter to the at-fault party and/or their insurance company. Usually, opposing counsel will make an offer and then we can choose whether to accept or reject it. We might go back and forth a few times before deciding on a final settlement, and if the other party is not cooperative, we will take the claim to trial.
What Types of Personal Injury Claims Do You Handle?
At Urban Co., L.P.A., we handle claims from car accidents, dog bites, and more. We also handle workers’ compensation cases and can help you decide whether a traditional workers’ comp claim or a personal injury lawsuit would be more appropriate in your situation.
All the personal injury claims our Warren personal injury attorneys handle are inspired by negligence, which occurs when someone else’s carelessness harms you.
Examples of negligence we see at our firm include:
- Drinking and driving
- Aggressive driving
- Inadequate security
- Distracted driving
- Failure to maintain a property
- Irresponsible pet ownership
Types of Damages You Can Recover
Personal injury claims are meant to compensate you for any losses you suffer in an accident. As such, you will likely be pursuing compensatory damages. Compensatory damages can be both economic and non-economic and account for things like:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- The costs of rehabilitative care
- Changes to your professional life
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- And more
In cases of extreme negligence, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Also called exemplary damages, these funds are designed to punish and make an example of the wrongdoer to help prevent similar accidents in the future.
Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you want to fight for your rights after an accident and pursue fair compensation, we recommend having a lawyer. You may be able to deal with insurance companies on your own, but our attorneys at Urban Co., L.P.A. have decades of combined experience and are truly committed to your case. We can anticipate all the insurance company’s tactics, help you understand your rights, and work with you to meet your needs and goals.
