Cleveland Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Attorney
Personal injuries that result in severe trauma, permanent disabilities or wrongful death are never anticipated. Yet, they occur every day due to medical malpractice, dangerous and defective products, negligent drivers and a host of others. The bottom line is that when you or your family have been the victim of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to be compensated.
At The Robenalt Law Firm, Inc., we can help you recover that compensation due to any type of personal injury or wrongful death including, but not limited to:
- Medical Malpractice. Medical malpractice can occur due to the negligence of licensed healthcare providers (such as doctors and nurses) and those who work in a hospital medical center, a nursing home, an assisted living facility and many others. Injuries include botched surgeries, failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis, patient neglect and others that can lead to heart attack, stroke, broken bones, cancer and more. These types of personal injury cases are generally judged by the standard of care in which another healthcare professional would have acted in a similar situation.
- Dangerous & Defective Products. Product liability accidents occur due to dangerous or defective products such as prescription drugs, household appliances, toys, car seats, high chairs, motor vehicles, tools and others that were defectively designed, defectively manufactured or when manufacturers, sellers or distributors failed to warn of known defects.
- Car, Truck, Motorcycle & Other Vehicle Accidents. Car, truck or motorcycle accidents are likely the most common form of personal injuries suffered. They can be the result of drunk driving, distracted driving, texting while driving, defective vehicle parts and much more. Personal injury accidents can also involve pedestrians, bicycle riders, boats, recreational vehicles such as ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), snow mobiles and more.
- Workers Compensation. Falls, crushing injuries, exposure to asbestos inhalation and toxic chemicals are some of the most common types of workers compensation claims. These can result from OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) violations, employers failing to provide workers with safety equipment or warning them about known dangers.
- Premises Liability. Slip and fall accidents, dog bites and swimming pool injuries are likely the most common types of personal injuries when it comes to premises liability. Both home and business owners can be held liable when they fail to maintain their properties or warn others about known dangers. Liability generally depends on whether you were invited onto the property (such as a store), were a licensee (such as a social guest in a home) or were trespassing.
Many victims of these types of accidents suffer serious and permanent injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, broken bones and more that may require a lifetime of expensive medical treatment. They may also prohibit the victim from working for a short time, or possibly forever. That type of financial loss can be devastating to any family.
How an Experienced Cleveland Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Regardless of what type of accident your family has suffered, we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Most personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits involve insurance companies who will do whatever it takes to pay you as little as possible.
Attorney Tom Robenalt understands how insurance companies operate. In fact, he used to work for insurers before deciding that helping victims recover was simply more important. Rest assured that insurance companies have teams of lawyers to represent their best interests; make sure you have someone to represent yours.
We work with reconstruction experts, healthcare professionals, medical experts, life care planners, financial experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists, manufacturers – and anyone else who can help your case – in order to obtain the maximum recovery for you. In Ohio personal injury lawsuits, you may be entitled to lost wages, future potential earnings, medical bills, physical pain and suffering, emotional pain and suffering and more.
In an Ohio wrongful death, you may be entitled to medical expenses, the deceased’s physical and emotional pain and suffering, the deceased’s lost wages, funeral and burial expenses, loss of consortium, losses experienced by the deceased's spouse, parents and children and more.
Taking That Next Step Can Be Hard; Let Us Help
At Robenalt Law, we understand how difficult it is to even consider taking legal action after a traumatic event and that many victims likely feel that the legal process is intimidating. Let us help by putting our experience to work for you so that you can deal with healing – in whatever form that may be.
Keep in mind that Ohio law requires the filing of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit within two years after the accident or death, so contacting an experienced Ohio personal injury or Ohio wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible is always in your best interests. The time limits for medical negligence cases that result in serious injury and death are different - they must be filed within one year of the injury or death.
