Lawsuit Options For Those Injured In Ohio Motor Vehicle Accidents

Every state has implemented auto insurance statutes. Most have what's known as no-fault laws, at-fault laws or a hybrid of the two.

The state of Ohio has implemented at-fault laws. Those injured in any type of car accident in the state of Ohio generally have three options when it comes to seeking damages. They can:

  1. File an insurance claim on their own policy.
  2. File an insurance claim against the at-fault driver.
  3. File a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

The Decision To File An Insurance Claim

Whether you decide to file an insurance claim with your own provider or the at-fault driver, it's important to understand that, despite their reassurance, insurance companies are not on your side.

Many adjusters often offer injured parties a low settlement. And once a settlement offer is accepted, it is binding and cannot be altered or rescinded.

Getting the help of an experienced attorney with extensive experience negotiating with many different auto insurance companies is essential to ensuring your rights are protected and that you receive the maximum benefits stipulated under Ohio law.

The Decision To File A Lawsuit

There are a wide variety of situations that could give rise to filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Perhaps there was a discrepancy as to the actual party at fault; maybe the insurance adjuster refused to pay you a type of compensation you were rightfully owed under a policy.

If filing a lawsuit is the best course of action, an experienced lawyer can provide the advocacy you need.
