In the aftermath of an accident, victims often don’t know where to turn. They may have seen ads on TV for personal injury attorneys, but aren’t sure if that is right for them. At Littlejohn Law, our attorneys are not your typical car accident attorneys—they are experienced in pursuing compensation from those who cause accidents and will fight to protect your right to a fair settlement.
How Personal Injury Cases Work
As members of society, we all have a duty to act in a reasonable manner so that others are not harmed by our actions. When a person or business violates that duty, they can be held accountable and be required to compensate the person who was injured. Personal injury claims are not based on criminal charges and the at-fault party can only be required to make financial restitution. In most cases, this comes from their insurance company. Depending on the accident, this may be an auto insurance policy, a homeowner’s or renter’s policy, or a businesses’ liability coverage. While insurance adjusters often won’t negotiate with an accident victim, they do take contact from attorneys seriously. The attorneys at Littlejohn Law make every effort to get you policy maximums when you are suffering from injuries caused by an accident.
Accident Claims We Accept
There are unfortunately a vast number of ways you can be injured through no fault of your own. We have successfully represented clients in a variety of claims, including the following:
- Car accidents. Car accidents are the most common claims we see. When another person runs a red light, speeds, or is driving while impaired or distracted and causes an accident, that person should be held accountable.
- Pedestrian accidents. Careless or distracted drivers often don’t see pedestrians crossing in a crosswalk or at an intersection. Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable and may suffer catastrophic injuries when hit by a car.
- Collisions with commercial semi-trucks. We expect truck drivers to be skilled and cautious, but when they aren’t, they put other motorists at risk of serious injury and death. Truckers and their employers carry large insurance policies, but also have teams of lawyers backing them up.
Even if you are unsure of who was at fault in the accident that left you seriously injured, schedule a consultation in our Wintersville, OH, office.
We Work on a Contingency Fee Basis
With personal injury cases, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that until and unless we win your claim for compensation, you don’t pay us a cent. If we are successful on your behalf, you will pay us a pre-arranged percentage of your settlement, leaving you with plenty of money to cover your medical bills and lost wages and to compensate you for your pain and suffering. Call our office to discuss the details of your case as soon as possible. If we believe we can help you, we would be happy to take your case. Don’t suffer in silence. Fight for the settlement you deserve with experienced attorneys by your side.
