Careless people who injure others can be held accountable by our civil justice system. The insurance company of the person who caused your injuries is responsible for paying your damages.
Unfortunately, dealing with an insurance company can be stressful. Its job is to settle your claim as cheaply as it can. If it can avoid paying you anything, it will. To recover the compensation you are due, you will need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
I am Kevin Sandel. As a former insurance company claims adjuster and attorney, I have insider knowledge that will lead to outstanding results for your personal injury case. Call 330-666-2889 (ATTY) to schedule a free, in-person consultation.
My law office is in Akron, and I serve injured people and their families throughout Ohio. If you hire me, you owe me no money upfront. I handle all personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis, which essentially means I don’t get paid unless you get paid.
The following are examples of types of personal injury claims I handle:
- Auto accidents: I handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, including those involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians.
- Dog bites: When a dog or another animal attacks a person, the injuries can be severe. The victim may suffer lasting scars, both physically and emotionally. Ohio law makes the owners and keepers of dogs strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs. If you or your child was bitten by a dog or another pet, you may have a valid claim against the pet’s owner.
- Slip, trip-and-fall accidents: Property owners are responsible for injuries to guests caused by unsafe conditions. This area of law is known as premises liability, and it applies to store owners, private homes and municipalities. However, just because you injured yourself on someone else’s property does not mean that their insurance company will pay. You will have to prove that unsafe conditions on the property led to your injuries.
