Personal Injury

The laws in Ohio governing personal injury, medical malpractice, automobile collision, and other serious injury cases are constantly changing. It often seems as though the deck is stacked against the victim these days. Juries often feel that the injured Plaintiff is simply playing “the lawsuit lottery” and that he/she is not entitled to compensation.


Today, as a result of recent Court decisions, others also claim to have a first right to money that injured victims do receive either by way of settlement or jury verdict. Ohio residents who have suffered a serious injury as a result of someone else’s negligence need a lawyer who has kept abreast of the changes in the law. They need someone who is experienced as a trial lawyer. Someone who can, and will, stand with them, and by them, fight for their rights, and assist them in obtaining the fair and just compensation that they deserve.
