People who are involved in an Ohio car accident sometimes mistakenly think that hiring an attorney as soon as possible after the collision is unnecessary because, after all, “the law is the law,” and any issues that might arise can be handled later just as easily as sooner.
But no two cases are exactly alike and in fact, any car accident case may raise complex insurance or other issues, the analysis of which may determine whether the injured party gets the compensation they deserve.. With this in mind, it is easy to see why retaining an experienced personal injury attorney who can help investigate the cause of an accident, identify potential witnesses, gather important medical records and proof of injury, and deal directly with insurance adjusters who will take them seriously can be very important.
Facts of the Case
In a case recently decided in Cleveland, Ohio by the Eighth Appellate District (Cuyahoga County), the plaintiff was a woman hit by a car in July 2015 while crossing the road. She was seriously injured, incurring over $250,000 in medical bills. At the time of the accident, the woman’s son and his family were living in her home while their new home was being built. They had moved into the plaintiff’s home about five weeks prior to her accident, and they moved out about two months after the accident.
