Personal injury lawsuits generally need to be filed within one year in Ohio. As with any rule, there are exceptions. For instance, if the victim is a minor, the statute of limitations is two years after he or she reaches age 18. Attorney Chris Mellino welcomes you to contact our Cleveland office with any questions you may have about an accident, an injury, or a potential claim.
During that consultation, we will:
- review your case;
- determine negligence;
- give you an honest opinion as to whether you have a claim worth pursuing;
- help gather and preserve evidence;
- track down witnesses; and
- negotiate with insurers for a fair settlement.
A fast, fair, and substantial settlement will allow you to pay medical expenses quickly and may come in handy if you’ve lost time from work as a result of your injuries. But if a fair settlement doesn’t appear to be an option, you may wish to take your case to trial, which can be expensive, time-consuming, and unpredictable.
If you sustained catastrophic injuries in a Cleveland, Ohio, car accident, contact our lawyers for a free consultation. For nearly thirty years, Mellino Law Firm has provided clients with specialized medical knowledge, exceptional trial skills, and superior negotiating talent in pursuit of fair compensation.
