Dedicated Personal Injury Attorney in Columbus, Ohio

Jami S. Oliver and Sydney M. BravermanA “personal injury” under the law refers to a physical injury caused by the intentional or negligent act of another, including individuals, business owners, and governmental entities. The law recognizes injuries caused by negligence as legal wrongs, or torts, for which the law provides a remedy in the form of monetary compensation for the damages caused. Liability insurance is often available to pay these costs, but the burden always falls on the injured party to get the compensation they are owed. These steps can range from negotiating a settlement with the insurance company to taking them to court and proving to a jury that the other party is liable and how much they are liable for. This process is time-consuming and requires a solid working knowledge of the law and legal procedure.

Accident victims shouldn’t have to spend the time and energy necessary to be successful on their claims, and quite frankly, accident victims can’t recover as much on their own as they could with an attorney helping them. Insurance company representatives are skilled, trained, and experienced in minimizing their payouts, getting accident victims to accept less than their claim is worth, or even convincing them they don’t have a claim at all. At the Oliver Law Office, our attorneys are every bit as skilled, trained and experienced as the insurance company representatives on the other side. We know what your claim is worth and how to go about getting that full amount, whether through settlement negotiations or if it takes going to court. Your job after an accident should be to focus on getting better and taking care of yourself and your family. Our job is to handle your claim on your behalf and get you the best result with the best client experience along the way. Contact our experienced Columbus personal injury lawyer today.

Recovering Full Compensation for Personal Injury Victims in Columbus

At the Oliver Law Office, you’ll find a hardworking team of attorneys and staff with keen attention to detail taking a thorough approach to ensure your claim is handled successfully and resolved with the maximum compensation that meets your needs. Compensation in a personal injury case can account for all of the following legal damages, among others:

  • Physical injury
  • Permanent impairment
  • Loss of a limb
  • Medical Expenses
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Inability to function usually and normally
  • Pain and suffering

If the negligent party’s actions were especially shocking or outrageous, or if the insurance company is acting in bad faith, punitive damages might apply as well. Punitive damages are meant to punish defendants for especially bad or malicious conduct, and they can be twice as high as the amount of compensatory damages described above. A higher legal standard applies to punitive damages, but that doesn’t stop us from pursuing them in appropriate cases to maximize justice and compensation for our deserving clients.
