More than 37,000 people die annually in auto related accidents in the US. In addition, over 2 million individuals are injured in that same time period.
For the last 34 years, I have worked with victims and their families to gain fair compensation when an accident occurs resulting in a debilitating injury or fatality. I have seen everything from blatant negligence to what truly seems to be a ‘wrong time, wrong place’ situation for all involved.
Meeting with an accident victim or their surviving family members is gut wrenching and never gets any easier for me; but I know they depend on me to help them obtain justice and fair compensation.
In some cases, pursuing charges can be emotionally complicated
As seen in recent news, young individuals are susceptible to causing and/or becoming a victim of an auto accident. Earlier this year a particularly heart wrenching accident caused the death of two Hawken School students. The unimaginable had happened and the lives of smart, handsome young men were tragically cut short. As an attorney, and as a trusted confidant, it is my job to provide legal guidance during these emotionally trying times. As a parent, I cannot imagine the loss that these families are dealing with. Equally unimaginable is trying to put the pieces together to decide whether or not to move forward with a case for personal injury as a result of a car accident.
It is important to seek legal guidance immediately following an auto accident
The insurance companies are quick to sweep the proverbial broom and clean up all trails following an accident. This can leave a victim or their families with unpaid medical expenses, and in this case end of life expenses. Knowing your rights in the State of Ohio, and holding those responsible, accountable, can help you deal with the trying times to come.
