Injury lawsuits, also known as torts, are a specialized practice of law dedicated to ensuring those who are injured by malice or negligence are compensated for their injuries. Compensation can include medical expenses, lost time from work, pain and suffering, and, depending on the extent of your injuries, loss of employability, loss of enjoyment, and loss of society. The best personal injury attorneys ensure that you are compensated for every loss you experience, not just economic damages related to your medical expenses. We fight for your claim as hard as we can and we do everything we can to help you pursue the settlement you deserve. In cases in which the insurance company does not want to play fair, we are prepared to take your claim to a jury. Our job is to get the most money for you that we can.
Below, we will discuss why having the best Ohio injury attorney managing your injury claim is of vital importance.
In most personal injury lawsuits, you will be negotiating with an insurance adjuster and making a claim on an insurance policy. Auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, or general commercial liability insurance are three common policies against which injured parties file claims. In cases in which an injured party is filing a suit against a company for a defective or dangerous product, he or she may be suing the company directly. In some cases, you may be suing individuals with insurance policies directly even if they have coverage. This can happen when their insurance coverage does not cover your total damages.
Rest assured, however, that you will only get one chance to receive payment for your injuries. You want to ensure that you are getting the compensation you need to make up for your losses. As soon as you file a claim against someone’s policy, you have entered a negotiation.
If you have ever dealt with an insurance company before, you know how difficult it can be. Even in cases in which you are filing claims against your own insurance policy, the insurance company will try to pay you as little money as possible. This is in spite of the fact that they have a fiduciary duty to represent the best interests of their policyholder. That is why personal injury attorneys are called in to litigate claims even against their client’s own insurance companies.
