One of the most important questions that you’ll surely want an answer to after a crash is that of: who is responsible for paying for damages? Damages may include property losses, medical expenses, and even future costs, like lost wages, future medical costs, and pain and suffering.
Ohio is an at-fault car insurance state, or traditional tort liability state, which means that those who cause accidents are responsible for paying for them. Typically, a not-at-fault party will file a claim with the at-fault party’s liability insurance. In order to hold the at-fault party liable for damages you have suffered, you will need to prove that your accident and injuries would not have happened but for the actions of the at-fault driver.
While Ohio laws may allow you to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company for damages, the process isn’t always as simple as declaring fault and demanding damages. Instead, insurance companies may lowball your claim, state that you are partially at fault for the accident and therefore responsible for your injuries, or even deny your claim outright. When any of these situations occur, working with an experienced Troy auto accident lawyer is very important.
An attorney can help you to prove fault and damages, and present evidence to the insurance adjuster that substantiates your losses. What’s more, an attorney can also review a settlement offer to determine whether or not it is fair, and negotiate on your behalf for a higher amount. If settlement negotiations fail, your attorney can represent you in pursuing a lawsuit.
