Injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident?
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to relief. The law firm of Hanahan & Hinton, LLC should be your first call for justice.
Ohio generally follows a common law negligence analysis to determine fault arising from a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA). Negligence, in its simplest term, means that the defendant owes you a duty not to cause harm to you on the roadway. The defendant breaches that duty when you are injured in a MVA that was caused by the defendant. There are several ways a defendant can negligently cause an accident:
Ohio law requires that all operators of motor vehicles carry insurance for their own liability. However, some drivers do not follow this law and drive with no insurance coverage. If this happens, you can still recover damages if you have your own uninsured/underinstured motorist coverage. Your insurer will provide relief for the injuries that resulted from the accident. Remember that your insurance policy may require that you provide notice of the accident as soon as practicable. It is important to put the insurance company on notice so the claim is not denied.
During your initial meeting with Hanahan & Hinton, LLC, be prepared to discuss the medical treatment your have received as well as future medical treatment caused by the accident.
When someone has been injured, it isn't always by a car accident. Accidents do happen on the road: negligence in a car, truck, semi, motorcycle or even as a pedestrian. But boating accidents, construction mishaps, even dog bites can cause you pain, lost wages, mounting bills.
Whatever caused your injury, we are here to help you determine if you can be compensated for your case.
