Steps in a Personal Injury Case
- After signing a contract with our office, you will be sent home with the contact information of all the staff that you will be working with, as well as other information on your case.
Providing our clients with the contact information of all those individuals who will be working on their case allows them to feel comfortable knowing that they are important to us. We understand how overwhelming the personal injury claims process can be, so we want to be there every step of the way for our clients.
- A paralegal will contact the insurance company on your behalf to determine coverage.
One of the most stressful parts about a personal injury case is dealing with the insurance company. Our paralegals will take the stress off of your shoulders, allowing you to recover from your injuries and get back to your normal life.
- We will send the insurance company a letter of representation and set up your accident claim. We will also handle the property damage claim, where we will either make arrangements to get your car fixed or get reimbursed for a total loss. We can also set up a car rental if allowed by the policy.
Our staff has experience with the claims process and going through the motions of an Ohio accident lawsuit. This makes it much easier for our lawyers and paralegals to submit your forms and handle the arrangements that are necessary for a favorable outcome. This is something that our office does on a daily basis whereas you may have never been exposed to the legal process.
