What Happens When You File a Personal Injury Claim in Ohio?

| Personal Injury
Personal Injury Claim in Ohio

At Oliver Law Office, our Columbus Ohio personal injury attorneys encourage anyone hurt because of another person or party’s negligence — including anything from car accidents to slip and fall incidents — to seek medical care immediately.

First, this allows the physicians to evaluate your injuries and create a treatment plan. Second, it substantiates that you were hurt in an accident and ties your injuries directly to the incident caused by the liable party’s negligence.

From this point, you can independently pursue your personal injury claim, gathering and submitting evidence and other essential documentation to the liable party’s insurance company. This process seems straightforward but can quickly become more complex than you bargained for when the insurance representative initially disputes the claim, or makes an offer that doesn’t even come close to meeting your related medical bills.

Your other option is to review your claim with an experienced Columbus personal injury lawyer who can help.

Discuss Your Accident and Injuries with a Skilled Personal Injury Lawyer in Columbus, Ohio

At Oliver Law Office, it’s all about being taken care of. If you’ve been hurt in a negligence-caused accident, you have significant and genuine needs. We take the time to understand them and do everything we can to meet those needs.

That begins with hearing your story, asking questions, and learning about your claim.

We’ll get started once we understand the essential details and how they have impacted your daily activities and overall quality of life.

That includes:

  • Assessing how the incident occurred through a thorough investigation and collection of evidence.
  • Identifying the person/parties involved.
  • Evaluating liability and all potential insurance coverages available for pursuit.
  • Understanding your injuries, the medical care you have undergone, and any future medical needs or long-term effects caused by the accident.
  • Learning how long your injuries have kept you from working and if and when you can return to work.
  • Calculating your overall damages, ensuring no detail is left to chance so we can issue a demand to the at-fault party’s insurance provider.

Our Columbus personal injury attorneys will provide a realistic approach to pursuing the best results for your case based on honest and open communication that sets the stage for your unique claim.

Next Step: Issuing a Demand to the At-Fault Party’s Insurance Provider

Our skilled personal injury lawyers will send a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance company outlining the details of your claim, including the extent of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. The demand letter typically requests compensation for your losses and may include a settlement offer.

The insurance company typically has 30 days to respond to the demand. From there, negotiations will begin. If we determine that the insurance company is unwilling to provide a fair settlement, we will file a personal injury lawsuit to move forward with litigation.

It is estimated that 95% of all personal injury cases in the U.S. settle outside the courtroom during negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, our attorneys remain trial-ready at each stage of the negotiating process so the insurance company representative knows we will not settle for less than our client deserves.
