Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits

There are many different causes of personal injury and many types of personal injury lawsuits. While each type is different, the successful prosecution of a personal injury lawsuit generally comes down to proving negligence or intent, causation and injury.

Car Accidents – The largest number of personal injury lawsuits in the United States come from vehicle accidents. Learn more about our experience and capabilities to represent you in car accident claims here.

Medical Malpractice – According to researchers from Johns Hopkins University, medical malpractice is now the third leading cause of death in the United States. Learn more about our medical malpractice services.

Slip and Fall Accidents – All falls are not equal. To successfully prosecute a slip and fall lawsuit, it generally must be proven that a hazardous condition existed, that the landowner knew about that condition and was negligent in correcting it, and/or that the hazard existed for a long enough period of time that a “reasonable landowner” should have found and corrected the hazard.

If you or someone close to you has suffered a slip and fall injury, please contact us for a free case evaluation.

Dog Bites – In Ohio, a dog owner, keeper, or harborer is liable for an injury to a person or that person’s property. The Ohio Revised Code makes that person strictly liable under most conditions.
