Summit County Personal Injury Lawyers

Helping Residents of Summit County Handle all Aspects of their Personal Injury Legal Matters

Accidents that result in personal injuries often occur when people least expect them. Although some injuries are relatively minor, others can be debilitating and can impact an accident victim for many years to come. When another person is responsible for causing the accident, you may be eligible to bring a personal injury claim or file a personal injury lawsuit for monetary damages against that person or entity. 

The Summit County personal injury lawyers at Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh, & Mastrantonio, LLP, can discuss your accident with you and may be able to help you file a personal injury claim. Contact our experienced legal team today for a free consultation.

What Are Some Common Types of Personal Injury Claims?

Personal injury claims can arise out of a number of different incidents and circumstances. You might be able to bring a personal injury claim in any of the following circumstances:

  • You were operating a motor vehicle, and another car struck your vehicle, causing you to become injured.
  • You were on someone else’s property, and a defective or hazardous condition on the property caused you to fall to the ground (either indoors or outdoors) and suffer serious injuries.
  • You purchased a product at a store, and when you were using it, the product malfunctioned and caused you to suffer one or more injuries.
  • You suffered an injury while you were working at your job and within the scope of your employment.

What Happens During a Personal Injury Claim?

After you are injured in an accident, you should first seek prompt medical treatment for your injuries. During a personal injury claim, your attorney will obtain copies of all of your medical treatment records and bills and submit them to the at-fault person or entity’s insurance company. The insurance company will then decide whether to accept or deny liability. 

If the insurance company decides to accept liability, an adjuster might make an initial settlement offer. In most cases, these initial offers are low and well below the true value of your case. After some negotiating, you may decide to settle your case, or you may opt to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Even after a lawsuit has been filed, your case can still settle. In the alternative, you may elect to take your case to trial and let the jury determine what, if any, damages you are entitled to. 

What are some Damages I can Claim in a Personal Injury Case?

Personal injuries sustained in an accident may require medical treatment and missed time from work. Consequently, you could pursue compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental distress and anguish
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of use of a body part
