CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY SERVING CLIENTS IN WATERVILLE, OHIO
Whether you were on your way to work, picking up groceries, or heading out of town for the weekend, a car crash is the fastest way to ruin not only your day, but potentially the next few months, or even years, of your life. The experienced attorneys of Groth & Associates know just how devastating a traffic collision can be, both physically and psychologically. Not only that, but the financial turmoil is another headache all on its own, which is why we strongly urge you to contact one of our aggressive Waterville personal injury attorneys today to begin working on a plan for maximum financial compensation.
You do not deserve to be left with the bill that another person incurred. We advise you to seek out legal representation before you even consider accepting a low offer from an insurance company. While their offer may sound appealing, we can virtually guarantee that your case is worth much more than they’re willing to admit. Our dedicated legal team will have your back every step of the way, and will work tirelessly to protect your rights, your financial stability, and your mental well being throughout this process.
IF NECESSARY, WE EMPLOY PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH
While most police work is held to a high standard of accuracy, regarding crash scene investigation, if we do not agree with the official traffic collision report, we will use other measures of our own to get to the truth. This may involve hiring a private collision investigator or expert witness. At Groth & Associates, we stop at nothing to ensure that our clients’ rights are protected and that you are not unfairly accused of being partially to blame. Ohio is a comparative negligence state, as described by the Ohio Department of Revenue. This means that if you are deemed more than 50 percent liable for causing the crash, you will not be entitled to any financial compensation. Moreover, it means that if you are deemed negligent in any amount, you will be that much less entitled to compensation. For example, if the court decides that you were 20 percent negligent in causing the crash, you will only be able to receive 80 percent of the damages that you would have been entitled to had you not been deemed negligent. When can this happen?
HOW DOES COMPARATIVE LIABILITY ARISE?
WHILE PERSONAL INJURIES ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS ACCIDENTS, THEY ARE OFTEN THE RESULT OF ANOTHER PERSON’S RECKLESS OR NEGLIGENT CONDUCT.
If another vehicle turned out from a side street in front of you when you had the right of way, but you were speeding, you may be found partially at fault. This is actually a very common scenario, as a survey conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 36 percent of crashes occurred when one vehicle was turning or crossing at an intersection. And, given that many people speed every time they get behind at wheel of a car, at some point, the likelihood of the other party casting blame is very high, even if your alleged speeding had nothing to do with the cause of the crash.
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.

HOW LONG WILL THE PROCESS TAKE? AND IS THERE ANY WAY TO SPEED IT UP?
Seeking a substantial and fair out-of-court settlement or filing a lawsuit can both be daunting processes. For one, both can take well over a year before anything is resolved. While it may seem like nothing has progressed and that your answers are not being met by the opposing party, we can assure you that our attorneys will apply pressure on a routine basis, applying the grease necessary to turn the slow, creaking wheels of what is the Ohio legal machine.
We implore you to be as patient as possible, as one of the main legal tactics of the other side is to delay. Insurance companies get back to requests slowly, do not respond to paperwork unless pressed, and regularly offer little information, or even deceiving information, regarding their client’s policy. The Waterville attorneys of Groth & Associates know every trick in the book, though, and will ensure that you are fairly compensated by the end.
