Automobile Accidents

Like most people in Ohio – indeed, like most people across the United States – you and members of your family depend on your automobile on a daily basis. Your car is your primary means of transportation. Unfortunately, even if you are a safe, careful and responsible driver, you or a beloved member of your own family can end up involved in an automobile accident. Over 2.2 million motorists are injured on the roads of the United States each year while over 40,000 motorists are killed in auto accidents. Car and truck accidents make up the bulk of personal injury cases in the US court system. These accidents happen for a variety of reasons – improperly maintained roads, poorly marked signs, and defective parts are just a few examples. The most common reason, however, is driver negligence.

There are more distractions today than at any other time in history. Cell phones, portable DVD players, and radios are just a few examples of distractions we face in our daily commute. They may seem harmless, but these distractions can cause serious injuries when they result in car accidents. If this occurs, you may need an Injury lawyer.

If you or a family member have ended up in a major car accident, it is crucial that you engage the services of an experienced, qualified and reputable Ohio car accident lawyer. Sadly, there are people like you, as well as families just like your own, who have experienced serious injuries and even death as the result of automobile accidents. Those people who have failed to retain solid legal representation from effective Dayton car accident attorneys have found themselves unable to receive the compensation to which they are entitled in the aftermath of a significant car accident.

The professional team of experienced Ohio accident lawyers at The O’Keefe Firm can provide to you the powerful representation that you must have in the aftermath of an automobile accident. Insurance companies have skilled lawyers on their side. When you engage the professional services of The O’Keefe Firm you have an incomparable team of experienced, committed and capable personal injury lawyers on your team.

As a result of a car accident, you may be entitled to a wide range of compensation for everything from medical expenses to pain and suffering to lost wages. If you have lost a family member due to the negligence of another driver in a car accident, you may also be entitled to compensation for this terrible tragedy on a number of different levels as well. Injuries from car accidents represent some of the most serious injuries we have seen as car accident lawyers. These accidents cause injuries ranging from the less severe but long-term, like soft tissue injuries and whiplash, to the very serious, like brain trauma, lacerations, disfigurement, and even wrongful death.

While car crashes and motor vehicle accidents comprise a significant portion of personal injury claims, it would be wrong to think that they are always simple to resolve. The auto accident lawyers at The O’Keefe Firm understand not just the "rules of the road" and the special duties imposed on commercial and public carriers, but also the complex scientific and engineering principles needed to unravel just how a motor vehicle accident occurred on the roadways of Ohio and who, if anyone was at fault. Our skilled personal injury lawyers handle car crash and motor vehicle accident cases involving:

  • Rear end collisions
  • Intersection accidents
  • Alcohol related crashes
  • Hit and run injuries
  • Passenger injuries
  • Driver injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents and injuries
  • Semi-truck and tractor trailer crashes
  • Pedestrian accidents and injuries
  • Bicycle accidents

Every automobile accident in Ohio is different. Every set of damages, injuries, and losses is unique. While most car accidents in Ohio are caused unintentionally by a momentary lack of attention due to, for example, the use of a cellular phone or stereo, or another unsafe driving habit, some accidents are caused by behavior such as high speed reckless driving, drunk driving, driving while intoxicated (DWI), or driving under the influence (DUI). These reckless acts are not only negligent, but also criminal.

If you have been injured in a car accident or motor vehicle crash in Ohio, please contact the Dayton car accident lawyers at The O’Keefe Firm today. We offer free initial consultations and work on a contingentcy fee basis, which means that there are no fees or costs unless we win.
