If you recently got hurt in an accident or after using a dangerous product, you might be wondering if you have a valid personal injury lawsuit. I know it can be difficult to understand whether you have a legitimate claim, especially if you have an insurance agent, the potentially at-fault party, or anyone else telling you that it is not worth your time or energy to file a lawsuit.

I want to emphasize that it is critical to talk to a personal injury lawyer about whether you have a valid claim. Although it can be tough to know if you have a lawsuit on your own, I can assess the facts of your case and can help you to determine what your options might be for filing a lawsuit.

The following are some things to consider if you are wondering whether you should file a personal injury claim.

Is Another Person or Entity Responsible for Your Injuries? 

Is there another person or another entity responsible for your injuries? For example, were you injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by another driver? Or were you harmed by a negligent doctor? If you suspect another party is at fault, I can help you to determine whether you can file a claim against that party. 

Is There Evidence to Support Your Case? 

If you were able to do so, did you gather evidence to support your claim at the time of the accident that caused your injuries? Or if you were not able to gather proof yourself, were there witnesses to the accident? Or are medical records available that can help to prove your case? I can take a look at your case and discuss ways of gathering evidence to prove your side of the story.

Was the Negligent Party More at Fault Than You?

I often work with injury victims who are worried that they will not be able to obtain compensation—and that it is not worth their time to file a lawsuit—because the at-fault party has alleged that the injury victim is partially at fault. I want to make sure you know that I will do everything I can to help you prove that you do not bear any responsibility for your injuries.

Yet even if the at-fault party can show that you may be partially at fault, I want to assure you that Ohio law still allows you to recover damages even if you are partially liable. Unless you are 51% or more at fault, you can still obtain compensation from the at-fault party.

Call My Firm for Help with Your Personal Injury Lawsuit

I know how difficult it can be to determine on your own whether or not you have a valid personal injury claim. I often work with clients who waited to get in touch because the at-fault party insisted they did not have a valid claim or that they were partially at fault for the accident, or because an insurer denied compensation.

You should always have an experienced Ohio personal injury lawyer assess the facts of your case before you put yourself at risk of missing the required timeline for filing a lawsuit. I will do everything I can to help you get the financial compensation you deserve. I’ll Make Them Pay!® Call my office at 877.614.9524 so that I can assess your case for you today.
