PERSONAL INJURIES CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE AND WHEN THEY DO THE DAMAGES CAN BE SEVERE.
You may be dealing with medical expenses and the need for ongoing treatment, while being unable to work or perform the duties required in your job. There may be the potential for long term disabilities, while your injuries prevent you from enjoying hobbies and activities with family and friends that you normally engage in. While these types of injuries are generally referred to as
accidental, they are often the result of someone’s reckless or negligent conduct. At Groth & Associates, our skilled Toledo attorneys understand the serious ramifications you may be suffering as the result of your injury. We can advise you on how to hold responsible parties accountable, so that you can get the compensation you need to recover.
COMMON TYPES OF PERSONAL INJURY
The latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that accidental, unintentional injuries are an unfortunately common occurrence, and are listed as the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Over 30 million people visit hospital emergency rooms each year on account of personal injuries.
Even minor accidents can result in serious injuries that have the potential to impact your overall health and quality of life. Anytime you are injured, it is important to get medical care immediately, as even major injuries can have symptoms that take days or even weeks to appear.
CAUSES OF PERSONAL INJURIES
WHILE PERSONAL INJURIES ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS ACCIDENTS, THEY ARE OFTEN THE RESULT OF ANOTHER PERSON’S RECKLESS OR NEGLIGENT CONDUCT.
Black’s Law Dictionary defines negligence as doing something or failing to do something that a reasonable person either would or would not do under similar circumstances, and those who engage in this type of conduct can be held accountable either through an insurance company claim or through a personal injury lawsuit.
- Common causes of personal injuries include:
- Slip, trip, and fall accidents, caused by conditions such as wet floors or uneven sidewalks;
- Being struck by or against an object, such as unsecured shelving or loose fixtures;
- Cuts and lacerations caused by sharp objects and surfaces;
- Dog bites and attacks due to reckless dog owners.
- Car and motorcycle accidents, caused by distracted, intoxicated, or reckless drivers
Other common causes of personal injuries include pedestrian and bicycling accidents, injuries caused by defective products, and injuries that occur as the result of nursing home abuse or neglect and medical mistakes and negligence.
WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.ALFRED & JENNIFER
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.
Over the years I was employed by the Sheriff's Office, I was in contact with attorneys on a daly basis but Stevin stood head and shoulders above most others in all aspects of his work. His professionalism shown toward and compassion to, all he came in contact with, was beyond reproach. Should I ever need an attorney myself, Stevin Groth would be the person I would turn to in my time of need, no matter what that need might be.ROBERT
...He was very professional, approachable and true to his word.ANONYMOUS
The gratefulness that I and my husband have for this attorney and his firm is too great to put into words... I just need to say that during the whole case our family felt very important to Groth and somewhat special, if that is proper to say. This is because of how much care and professionalism was given throughout the case. His words, demeanor, and attitude was confident and soothing from the first moment he said he would take the case, in the court room, and after.ANONYMOUS
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU RECOVER
When dealing with insurance companies, it is important to understand that they will often attempt to either deny your claim, or to settle it quickly and for as little as possible, in order to save themselves money. Oftentimes, a settlement will be offered before you have had a chance to make a complete recovery, when the long term ramifications of your injury are still unknown. It is to your benefit to
have an experienced personal injury attorney by your side, defending your rights and assuring your interests are protected. In the event a reasonable settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company, your interests may be better served by filing a personal injury. Under Section 2307.011 of the Ohio Revised Code, you may be entitled to the following types of compensation:
Medical expenses and the cost for ongoing care
Lost wages and future losses in income and benefits
Pain, suffering, and mental anguish caused by your injuries
Compensation for intangible losses
