Liability for Car Accidents in Ohio
Determining liability in car accidents in Ohio plays a crucial role in the legal process. The at-fault party is held accountable for compensating the injured party for their damages. So, if you've been harmed in a car accident due to another driver's negligence or recklessness, they may be liable for your injuries and losses. Our team of attorneys will meticulously investigate your accident to establish liability and build a robust case for you.
It's essential to mention that Ohio follows a modified comparative fault rule. This means that if you're found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation might be reduced proportionally to your degree of fault. However, as long as you're less than 50% at fault, you can still recover damages. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to minimize any allegations of comparative fault and maximize your potential compensation.
Ohio Insurance Requirements
In the state of Ohio, it is mandatory for all drivers to carry a minimum amount of auto insurance coverage. These requirements are put in place to ensure that individuals are protected in the event of an accident. The minimum coverage includes Bodily Injury Liability Coverage of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident, as well as Property Damage Liability Coverage of $25,000 per accident.
Having the right insurance coverage is crucial as it provides financial protection and peace of mind. In the unfortunate event of a car accident, having sufficient insurance coverage can help cover medical expenses, property damage, and other related costs. It is important to understand the details of your insurance policy to ensure that you receive the full benefits to which you are entitled.
Our team of experienced attorneys assists individuals in comprehending their insurance policies and ensuring that they receive the maximum benefits available. We are here to guide you through the process, answer any questions you may have, and provide the support you need during this challenging time.
State Laws Addressing Personal Injury Claims
When you're pursuing a personal injury claim in Ohio, it's crucial to understand the state laws that can impact your case. Two significant laws to consider are the statute of limitations and comparative fault.
The statute of limitations in Ohio for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. It's vital to file your claim within this time frame to preserve your right to seek compensation. Our attorneys will ensure all necessary paperwork is filed promptly and accurately.
As mentioned earlier, Ohio follows a comparative fault system. This means that if you're found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation may be reduced. However, as long as you're less than 50% at fault, you can still recover damages. Our attorneys will gather evidence and build a compelling case to minimize any allegations of comparative fault and maximize your potential compensation.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
In the tragic event that a car accident results in the death of a loved one, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims seek compensation for the losses and damages suffered by the surviving family members. These claims can help cover funeral expenses, medical bills, lost income, and emotional pain and suffering.
Filing a wrongful death claim can be a complex and emotionally challenging process. Our compassionate attorneys have experience handling wrongful death cases and will provide you with the support and guidance you need during this difficult time.
