Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of serious personal injury in the United States. While some lucky people are able to walk away from a car accident with their health intact, too many others are left with life-altering injuries that will affect their ability to work and care for themselves far into the future.

If you have been seriously injured in a car or truck accident caused by another person’s carelessness, you deserve compensation for all of your losses – physical, financial, and emotional.

Negligence in Motor Vehicle Accidents

Negligence is defined as a person’s failure to act with reasonable care in a given situation. In some motor vehicle accident cases, it is obvious who was negligent. For example, drunk driving accidents and accidents that involve speeding or right-of-way violations generally leave little question about who should be held responsible. However, other cases require extensive investigation to determine who was negligent, and the issue of liability may be strongly contested by the party claimed to be negligent.

At Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A., we have the resources and experience you need to fully investigate your accident, build the strongest claim possible, and present your case in the most favorable way. We handle a wide range of motor vehicle accident cases, including:

We also handle wrongful death cases involving car accident fatalities and truck accident fatalities.

Know the Value of Your Accident Injury Claim

If you have been injured in an auto accident, the other party’s insurance company may have already offered you a settlement. It’s important not to accept this settlement until you have consulted with an experienced auto accident attorney. The initial amount that insurance companies offer accident victims is almost always less than they need and deserve for their losses. Before you speak with the insurance adjuster, make sure you know the true value of your injury claim.

Experienced Ohio Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys

We represented a 45-year-old woman from Virginia who suffered permanent and disabling injuries in a motor vehicle collision in Ohio. When the at-fault driver’s insurance company refused to settle her personal injury claim for a fair amount after nearly two years of negotiations, the woman’s Virginia lawyer referred the matter to Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A., to file suit in Ohio. In preparing for trial, we traveled to Virginia to videotape the trial testimony of the woman’s treating physicians. On the first day of trial, the insurance company increased its settlement offer significantly, and the case was settled for a substantial amount.
