Frequently Asked Questions
Should I talk to the insurance company after being involved in an accident?
We recommend that you first consult an attorney before speaking with the insurance company. Insurance companies will often try to prematurely settle a claim before it is appropriate to do so, and could cost you thousands in unpaid medical expenses.
How much does it cost to hire an auto accident attorney?
Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that we front all of the costs for your case and our fee is based on the amount we recover. Typically our contingency fee is one-third of the total recovery.
What are the criteria I should use to determine the best lawyer to handle my auto accident case?
Each person is unique and should meet with a lawyer in person to determine if you are comfortable working with that attorney or law firm. You should look for a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in handling your particular matter.
What is the process like when hiring an attorney for an auto accident case?
An excellent attorney will provide you with a free consultation with no expectations. The attorney will discuss the facts of your accident, your injuries, and what you can expect the law firm to do on your behalf.
How long does it typically take to settle an auto accident case with the insurance company?
There is no “typical” time frame for settling an auto accident case. Each case is unique. It is critical that you are aware of the statute of limitations period in Ohio to bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
