Semi-Truck Accident Cases

Semi-truck drivers, owners/operators, and trucking companies are obligated by law to operate their vehicles in a safe, responsible manner. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always occur. Because trucks are so much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, they are much harder to maneuver and stop. 80% of all people killed in automobile versus semi-truck accidents were passengers or drivers in the automobile.

Many dangerous practices contribute to semi-truck accidents every year including these common causes:

  • Unsafe Driving or Speeding
  • Oversized Loads or Unsafely Packed and Stacked Cargo
  • Distracted Driving
  • Inadequate Truck Operator Training
  • Unsafe Passing
  • Equipment Failures
  • Changing Lanes Abruptly

If you or a loved one have been in a semi-truck accident and require the assistance of experienced semi-truck accident lawyers in Columbus, Ohio, contact the personal injury lawyers at Erney Law. We work with all involved including your insurance company, and the at fault party’s insurer to make certain you receive the medical treatment you need and the compensation you deserve.

Scooter Accident Cases

E-Scooters or electric scooters are the motorized version of the standard scooter from your childhood. These scooters are growing in popularity within the downtown business district as well as in outlying areas. They’re often ridden without a helmet, on heavily trafficked streets increasing the likelihood of scooter-pedestrian or scooter-automobile accidents.

Navigating a scooter accident case is difficult as the scooter rental business is a new, evolving industry and the laws have not exactly kept pace with the rate of growth and popularity of electric scooters. If you have been involved in a scooter accident in the central Ohio area, contact the reliable auto accident lawyers at Erney Law in Columbus, Ohio to discuss how it happened, what the extent of your injuries are, and develop a plan that will get the justice you deserve.

Bicycle Accident Cases

As Columbus and surrounding areas have grown more “bicycle friendly” in recent years, many people are using bicycles as their primary mode of transportation.

This can result in a car hitting a person on a bicycle, even if the cyclist is properly following all of the “rules of the road.”

If you have suffered personal injury as a result of a bicycle accident involving a motor vehicle, it is important to contact the skilled bike accident lawyers in Columbus, Ohio who can represent you and help you recover the monetary damages to which you are entitled.

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 often brand themselves by using entertaining commercials and/or spokespersons in order to appear more approachable and friendly. But there’s nothing friendly about them attempting to prematurely settle a claim that could cost you thousands in lost compensation and unpaid medical expenses.

While it may be tempting to accept the initial settlement offer to move things along more quickly, in doing so you may be selling yourself short on compensation. This is where the experienced accident lawyers at Erney Law can expertly guide you through the process and get you all that you deserve from the car accident.

How much does it cost to hire an auto accident attorney?

At Erney Law, we work on a contingency fee basis. What that means is that our fee is based on the amount we recover. Typically our contingency fee is one-third of the total recovery. We also front all of the costs and expenses for your case.

We offer a free initial consultation where you sit down with one of our car accident lawyers so we can learn how the accident occurred, go over all the details regarding your injuries and medical care, and determine if your case requires our help. We do this with no financial obligation to you. Plus, there are no case fees unless we obtain a recovery in your case.

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 and will communicate well with you.

What is the process like when hiring an attorney for an auto accident case?

An experienced car accident lawyer will provide you with a free consultation with no expectations. The attorney will discuss the facts of your accident, your injuries, what you can expect the law firm to do on your behalf, and will answer any questions you may have.

How long does it typically take to settle an auto accident case with the insurance company?

There is no “typical” time frame for settling motor vehicle accident cases. Each case is unique. And while it is critical that you’re aware of the statute of limitations to file a car accident claim or bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party, you should first consult with a car accident attorney before accepting any settlement offer presented by the at fault party’s insurer. Once you accept an insurance company’s settlement, there is no going back.

The knowledgeable and experienced Columbus car accident lawyers at Erney Law take all aspects of your case into consideration to build the strongest possible settlement.
