Although this is not a guaranteed solution to your pain, you might enjoy long-term pain relief and improved health overall with regular chiropractic care.
Common Questions for the Injured
How much time do I have to file a lawsuit?
According to Ohio law, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit and about one year for a medical malpractice lawsuit. These deadlines begin from the date of injury. It takes time to gather evidence, interview witnesses or experts, and compile a case.
You also want to have enough time to pursue compensation from the insurance company first. Although some personal injury claims settle without going to court, we can represent you at trial if negotiations break down.
Should I admit fault in my personal injury case?
You should avoid any mention of fault or responsibility if you speak to an insurance adjuster. It is probably best if you let an experienced personal injury lawyer talk to the insurance company. You could jeopardize potential compensation if you admit fault for the accident.
How can I prove the other party is liable?
There are several ways to prove liability in a personal injury claim. Most accidents share a common cause: negligence. Kisling, Nestico & Redick determines liability by showing how the other party breached their duty of care. We have the resources and knowledge to gather evidence of this negligence, which could include one or more of the following.
Photos and Videos
It is always best to take pictures or videos at the accident scene. Include physical evidence in the photo, such as skid marks or debris, depending on the type of incident. We understand that sometimes an accident victim is too severely injured to take pictures. In these circumstances, we look for other sources of photographic evidence, such as closed-circuit cameras.
If possible, talk to people who were there when you were hurt. Witnesses play an essential role in establishing liability in a personal injury case.
Police reports document the incident. Depending on the type of injury or accident, a police report may also include a suspected cause and the most likely responsible party. We review this report to help us establish liability.
Should I go to the hospital?
One of the most critical actions after any kind of injury or accident is proper medical care. When you have severe injuries, you are taken to the hospital immediately. You can seek treatment for less severe injuries soon after the accident. However, your injuries can worsen if untreated. Please don’t hesitate to get medical attention if you are in pain.
Just as a police report provides an official record of your accident, medical documentation proves that you suffered injuries. An attorney will submit medical documentation, including test results, along with your claim. Kisling, Nestico & Redick uses proof of injury and loss to negotiate compensation on your behalf.

Common Car Accident Questions
Kisling, Nestico & Redick handles all types of car accidents. We guide you through the complex insurance and legal process. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions. Please feel free to reach out with additional questions.
What if the other driver is uninsured?
Accidents involving uninsured drivers are more challenging to resolve. Since the at-fault driver does not have insurance, your first source for potential compensation is your insurance. A car accident lawyer can review your policy to determine what benefits you might be entitled to receive. We help you file a claim with your uninsured motorist coverage.
Another option for pursuing compensation is through a personal injury lawsuit. KNR files a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to recover damages for your medical care and other related expenses.
Is it a good idea to hire an attorney?
Our car accident lawyers can help you in many ways after a crash. We examine the evidence, compile receipts, assess damages, and negotiate with the insurance company for maximum compensation. We have decades of legal experience and insider knowledge of the insurance industry. These are benefits that can make a difference in your accident case.
With Kisling, Nestico & Redick, we only get paid when you recover compensation.
What is the difference between liability and negligence?
Negligence is a legal term that means a person fails to act with the same level of care that another reasonable person would under similar circumstances. When negligence causes someone to suffer an injury that leads to financial damages, they may be held responsible (or liable) for their actions.
Common examples of negligence in car accident cases:
- Driving while impaired
- Distracted driving
- Driving with a broken headlight
- Running a red light
Who pays if I cannot work after the accident?
A car accident lawyer can help you recover lost pay for time lost because of injury. In many cases, the at-fault driver’s personal injury protection (PIP) covers your lost wages. This coverage is only valid up to the policy limit. Your attorney might suggest filing a personal injury lawsuit to seek additional damages if you exceed this limit.
