Canton, Ohio, Auto Accident Lawyer
In Ohio, negligence is only one factor in determining whether you can recover fair compensation if you have been injured in a car crash. The other factor is insurance. Many drivers in Ohio do not carry enough liability insurance to cover the damages of anyone they injure in an auto accident. A lawyer's assistance is often needed to find additional sources of coverage.
I'm Michael Boske, an auto accident lawyer in Canton, Ohio. I help clients and families throughout Northeastern Ohio recover fair compensation for car accident and truck accident injuries. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Drivers in Ohio are required to carry a minimum of $12,500 in liability coverage to pay for the damages of the other party in an auto accident. If you have suffered a serious injury, this will not be enough coverage to pay for your damages. As your lawyer, I will help you investigate other coverage, such as your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists. UM/UIM coverage will pay benefits after you have exhausted all other possible sources of compensation.
If you were injured by a drunk driver, prompt investigation is needed to determine if the person had been overserved alcohol in a bar or a restaurant. If you can prove that the establishment served alcohol to an intoxicated person, then you can sue it for damages. Injuries caused by drunk patrons are covered by the bar or restaurant's dram shop insurance.
Most insurance companies will bend over backwards to minimize the amount they have to pay for car accident injuries, so you often need a lawyer to obtain full coverage for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, permanent damages such as scarring or diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and wrongful death.
I represent clients injured in auto accidents on all state and interstate highways, including the I-80 Turnpike, I-76, I-70, I-77, I-71, Ohio Route 30 and Ohio Route 8.
