Has someone else’s carelessness caused your injuries? Have you lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence? The attorneys at Bowling Green personal injury attorneys at Lafferty, Gallagher, & Scott, LLC help grieving families and injured parties recover damages related to their medical expenses, lost wages, emotional trauma, and more. Below, we will discuss the types of cases that we handle.
Traffic accident liability can be divided into the following types:
In each case, the rules of the road will determine which party is at fault. Even those who are partly at fault for an accident can sue under Ohio’s comparative negligence statute so long as their share of the blame does not exceed 50%. Their damages, however, will be reduced by their share of the blame.
If you are attacked by an aggressive dog, you are entitled to recover damages related to your injuries under Ohio law even if the owner was not aware of the dog’s aggressive behavior. Owners are responsible for the conduct of their dogs regardless of whether or not they acted negligently.
If you are injured on the job, your employer likely carries workers’ compensation insurance. When that workers’ compensation policy covers you, you cannot file a lawsuit against your employer. However, for anyone who has ever tried to collect on workers’ compensation policy, the process can be exhausting and frustrating. Our attorneys can help ensure that the insurance companies uphold their end of the bargain.
In other cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit against an at-fault third party. If the injury is either caused by another company’s laborer or a defective piece of equipment, you can sue the company that employed the laborer or the company that manufactured the equipment. Our attorneys have helped many clients file that suit.
If the owner of a store leaves a dangerous condition in place, he or she is responsible if someone injures themselves. This includes slippery floors, icy steps, or obstructions in aisles. Additionally, if you are injured on a property by another patron, you can allege that the business provided negligent security. Talk to our attorneys for a free consultation.
