Serious Motor Vehicle Accident Cases
Arnold & Clifford LLP, is a Columbus, Ohio, law firm that also serves the Cleveland, Cincinnati and Dayton areas. We focus on trial practice for both individuals and corporate clients, in both state and federal courts, including serious motor vehicle accident cases.
In the aftermath of a serious auto, truck, motorcycle or RV accident, you may find yourself dealing with a variety of issues: medical bills, lost time from work and perhaps even permanent disability. This is a time when you could benefit from the advice of an experienced attorney.
Our lawyers have an excellent track record in vehicle accident cases. Having achieved many record-breaking outcomes, including the largest uninsured motorist verdict in Franklin County, we know what it takes to be successful. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
If your accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, you have a right to seek compensation for all of the damages you have suffered in the accident, including your pain and suffering. You may also have a right to seek compensation if you were harmed by a defect in your car or a roadway that was not properly maintained.
While trucking companies are required to carry substantial insurance policies, they will not pay large personal injury and wrongful death awards without a fight. The insurance companies that cover large trucks often send investigators to the scenes of serious accidents within hours. To protect your interests, you should contact an attorney while evidence such as witness statements, truck driver logbooks, truck maintenance records and truck GPS records are still available.
Common Reasons For Dangerous Wrecks
When you retain our law firm to represent you, our attorneys will begin an immediate investigation to uncover negligence such as:
- Driver fatigue
- Drug test violations
- Overweight vehicles
- Unsecured loads
- Past safety violations of the driver
- Defective equipment
Many car accidents involve drivers who are uninsured or underinsured. In that case, you need an attorney who is experienced in uncovering all possible sources of insurance, including your own UM/UIM coverage.
Our lawyers handle car, truck, RV and motorcycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that our fee, if we are successful, will be a percentage of any compensation we recover for you. If we are not successful, you will owe us nothing.
