Benefits of a Personal Injury Attorney

Insurance companies often try to take advantage of accident victims unfamiliar with liability laws or how much their case might be worth. You increase your chance of securing a settlement when you work with an attorney. Some of our attorneys worked in the insurance industry and now use this knowledge to your advantage.

There are other benefits of working with an attorney serving Wyandot County.

Collect and Examine Evidence

When you’re injured, trying to collect police reports and medical records is challenging. An attorney with KNR has the necessary resources to assess the circumstances of your accident and examine the evidence. You are more likely to recover compensation when you submit a detailed claim, including proof of liability. Working with an attorney allows you to concentrate on recovering from your injuries.

Evaluate Your Damages

Ohio law permits you to seek damages for economic and non-economic (also called emotional) losses. You might think only of medical bills, but there are many types of damages after an accident or injury. An attorney considers the extent, nature, and severity of your injuries. You deserve compensation for all the ways that someone’s negligence affected you and your loved ones.

Negotiate with the Insurance Company

Our injury attorneys are skilled negotiators with years of experience dealing with insurance companies. We are proud of our reputation for recovering compensation through experience and knowledge.

Common Questions for the Injured

Our attorneys have over 500 combined years of legal experience. We know that you have questions and want to help. If you have specific questions about your case, contact KNR today for a free, no-risk consultation.

How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit

Under Ohio law, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Although many injury cases settle outside of court, an attorney needs time to prepare a case if negotiations fall through. You deserve to exercise all your options and make an informed decision about your case.

Should I Mention Fault in My Case?

Admitting fault in your personal injury case could jeopardize your claim. Insurance companies try to blame victims because this allows them to avoid paying. When you volunteer information about your case, the insurer could deny your claim. We encourage you to talk to an attorney before speaking with the insurance company.

How Do I Prove Someone Is At Fault?

Establishing liability is essential for pursuing compensation. There are several ways to prove that the other party is at fault. A skilled attorney understands the burden of proof that insurers require before considering a payout. An attorney with KNR obtains evidence of liability or wrongdoing that caused your injuries.

Photos and Videos

If possible, take pictures or videos at the scene. Be sure to include visual evidence, property damage, and even pictures of your injuries.

Witnesses

Ask people at the scene if they are willing to make a statement about what they saw and heard. Having a witness statement (or several) is excellent supporting documentation for your case.

Police Reports

An attorney uses a police report as an official document showing the date, time, location, and often the cause of the accident. Insurance claims are more substantial when there is a police report to corroborate other evidence.

Should I Go to the Hospital?

Even if your injuries don’t appear severe, they may intensify, or you could develop new symptoms. Taking a trip to the nearest hospital or urgent care center helps you avoid needless pain and discomfort.

Medical Documentation

An experienced accident attorney knows that insurers need proof of your injuries. Going to the hospital or walk-in clinic produces medical documentation that supports your case. Medical documentation in an injury case might include test results, examination notes, photos, and your doctor’s opinion about your prognosis.

Common Car Accident Questions

You didn’t ask to be hurt in a car crash, but you can ask KNR for help. Our attorneys fiercely defend your rights to hold the liable party accountable.

What if the At-Fault Driver Is Uninsured?

When you’re involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, you still have options for seeking compensation. In our experience, many policyholders are unaware that they carry uninsured motorist protection. This insurance covers your damages if the at-fault driver is uninsured (or if you’re a victim of a hit and run driver).

Another option is to ask an attorney about filing a personal injury lawsuit. Although the other driver doesn’t have insurance, they could still have financial assets.

Should I Hire an Attorney?

You are not legally required to hire an attorney, but there are several benefits if you choose counsel. Ohio has complicated liability and negligence laws that affect your case. In addition to legal knowledge, an attorney that handles personal injury cases understands how insurance companies operate. This experience helps you obtain the best possible outcome in your case.

What Is Negligence?

Negligence is a legal term that means someone failed to uphold their duty of care, causing injury as a result. For example, failing to obey a red light is considered negligent behavior. An attorney looks for proof that the other party breached their duty and therefore should pay for your damages.

Many car accidents involve negligence, such as:

What if I Cannot Work Due to Injuries?

The liable party’s insurance might cover lost wages due to accident-related injuries. If you are severely injured, your expenses could reach the policy limit. An attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit to seek additional damages.
