Columbus Personal Injury
Knowledgeable Personal Injury Lawyers for Victims in Columbus
After an accident, you may experience substantial pain and suffering. You may also incur tangible costs like wage loss, medical bills, prescription drugs, and a need for household help. If the injuries are catastrophic, you may need to make changes to your home or lifestyle. At Moll Law Group, our personal injury attorneys guide Columbus residents and others through the legal process after they have been hurt in an accident.
Product Liability Lawsuits
If you were injured by a defective product in Ohio, we are available to bring a product liability lawsuit on your behalf. Defects that may be actionable include those related to design, marketing, and manufacturing. You will need to show that the defect was the legal cause of the injuries for which you are trying to recover compensation and that the manufacturer created the product that was the cause of the harm. The Ohio Product Liability Act will govern your claim.
When a doctor deviates from the accepted practices and standards of the medical community, the consequences may be devastating. In a medical malpractice lawsuit, we will need to retain experts to establish what the accepted practices were in connection with the medical care that you received. The expert will also need to testify that your health care provider did not meet that standard and that this caused your injuries.
Nursing Home Abuse
When you put your loved one in a home, you expect that the home will use reasonable care to promote their safety and health. Unfortunately, many residents are abused by nursing home staff, and families should be aware of signs of neglect and abuse, such as pressure sores or unexplained falls. A nursing home may be sued for negligence if your loved one is injured or killed due to the nursing home's failure to use the appropriate degree of care in connection with them.
You may bring a premises liability lawsuit if you were hurt on someone else's property due to a dangerous condition. For example, if you tripped on a broken step and broke your leg, you may have grounds for a claim for compensation. In this situation, you would need to prove that the owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition but did not repair the step or provide warnings about it.
Automobile accidents often happen because of a driver's negligence. You will need to show that the other driver owed you a duty to drive safely, which they breached, and that this breach caused you to suffer injuries. In Ohio, if a jury finds that you were more than 50% responsible for an accident, you will not be able to recover compensation, so it is critical to retain your own attorney before speaking to the other driver's insurer or attorney.
Factories, farms, and other large-scale operations often care more about their ability to turn a profit than the harm that they do to the environment and the neighborhoods surrounding them. If you suspect that your illness was triggered by toxic exposure to chemicals, you may have grounds to bring a toxic tort lawsuit. One sign that chemical exposure is to blame is when many people in the same neighborhood develop the same or similar symptoms.
