Side impact and rear-end collision experience that you can trust.
Recovering full damages for injuries associated with side impact and rear-end collisions isn’t always easy. Many insurance companies are skilled at reducing the claims of injured parties. Ohio is a modified comparative negligence state, which means that if an insurance company can show you are completely or partially at fault for a car accident, the insurer can reduce the damages it pays you or, in some cases, pay you nothing at all.
While the insurance company is trying to prove your fault in an accident, it is imperative that you have skilled attorneys and investigators representing your interests. At Scott W. Schiff & Associates, Scott and our personal injury attorneys carefully investigate all of the evidence-from skid marks on the road to the cell phone usage records of drivers-to develop your case. We consult medical economists, life care planners, and medical experts to determine the true costs associated with your injuries. And we offer advice that can protect you from saying something that could jeopardize your compensation. In fact, once you hire us, insurers will be required to speak directly with us on all issues related to your case.
