CAR ACCIDENTS CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE AND WHEN THEY DO THE DAMAGES CAN BE SEVERE.
Most of our natural, instinctive fears are, at this point in the human history timeline, completely unfounded. What are your actual chances of being devoured by a shark? How many deadly spiders do you have close encounters with on a normal basis? The dark is essentially a thing of the past as street lamps now make it impossible to see more than a handful of the brightest stars and planets. There are few predators left, we always have access to lights, food, water, warmth, and shelter. So what are the real dangers in our lives today? Cars. Whether you drive a large SUV, own a small sedan, walk, take a bus, or ride your bike, you are exposed, on a daily basis, to multi-ton steel vehicles traveling faster than any of our natural predators. Statistically, we will all experience four to five auto wrecks in each of our lifetimes. While the severity of every crash varies, it is rare to escape a serious auto crash without injury. According to data compiled by Wake Forest Medical Center, motor vehicle collisions
are the eighth leading reason for emergency room visits after chest pain, abdominal pain, vomiting, and other typical sudden health conditions. Unfortunately, the cure for traumatic injuries caused by a car crash is not as easy as tending to a stick stomach. Likewise, the legal work after such a crash takes considerable time, resources, and attention during a time when an injured victim needs to be resting and recovering from the physical and mental trauma they were subjected to. The experienced Fostoria, Ohio attorneys at Groth & Associates will not only help take this stress off your hands, but will help you reach the most beneficial financial outcome possible in your situation. Our attorneys will fight on your behalf to ensure that you are compensated for all of the damages the negligent party caused. Contact us today to discuss the options available to you.
WHAT DOES FINANCIAL COMPENSATION ENTAIL AND WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO BE AWARDED?
The amount with which you are financially compensated depends on the damages caused to you. Similarly, the compensation amount is determined by the liable party’s insurance policy (or in some circumstances their private property), as well as the extent of your injuries and property damage. In terms of the most heavily financially compensated injuries, serious or permanent traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, permanent disabling injuries, and scarring and disfigurement are at the top of the list. Other types of injuries that can result in large settlements include multiple fractures, damage to internal organs, other less serious traumatic brain injuries, fractured spine, and severe lacerations. Whether you are suffering from whiplash or an injury that caused a permanent disability, you need legal representation. What you receive from the negligent party depends, to a great extent, on your legal team that battles on your behalf. The car collision attorneys of Groth & Associates have a proven track record when it comes to reaching very favorable outcomes for our injured clients.
HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE?
WHILE PERSONAL INJURIES ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS ACCIDENTS, THEY ARE OFTEN THE RESULT OF ANOTHER PERSON’S RECKLESS OR NEGLIGENT CONDUCT.
The more serious your injuries, the longer it will take to resolve your case. No insurance provider wants to weaken its bottom line, and paying out large sums of money to injured victims is, unfortunately, not high on any insurance provider’s list of priorities. To fight these goliaths in and out of court, you must depend on an experienced and aggressive attorney that knows the law inside and out. Our attorneys work tirelessly and carefully to ensure that you are awarded everything that you are owed, and we believe that keeping our clients up to date on all matters is an essential part of our service.
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.

THE LEGAL DOCTRINE OF NEGLIGENCE AND IMPLIED DUTY OF CARE
Proving negligence is key to being awarded financial compensation to pay for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage. All drivers owe the people around them a duty of care to act in a reasonably safe, cautious, and attentive manner. Breaking that duty and causing injury to another leads to negligence and financial liability. Proving fault on the other driver’s behalf may seem simple because you know what happened, but evidence may not be as readily available
as you think, the other driver may and likely will go back on their word, and police reports are not always accurate. Furthermore, Ohio courts recognize shared guilt, which means that if you are found to be partially at fault, you may receive less, or nothing, than if the other party is found to be fully negligent. An experienced attorney will provide investigative assistance to prove fault on the party that did, indeed, cause the crash and injuries to you.
COMMON TYPES OF INJURIES CAUSE IN CAR CRASHES
Crash injuries account for around $20 billion a year in hospital and doctor visits, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Moreover, the economy loses well over $33 billion in lost employment revenue due to injuries, not counting fatalities. Some of the most common types of injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
- Broken limbs;
- Facial lacerations;
- Broken collarbone;
- Fractured rib(s);
- Broken ankle;
- Deep contusions;
- Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); and
- Spinal cord damage.
Often, in more traumatic car crashes, victims suffer multiple types of injuries. These medical costs amount to more money than most people will make in a decade, and cause thousands of families to file for bankruptcy every year. In fact, medical costs are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. Our attorneys can help you receive what you are owed so that your future is financially secure.
