How Do I Know If I Can Sue?

Your eligibility to sue depends the details of the incident. In general, personal injury lawsuits are filed by victims whose injuries were directly caused by another’s negligence. A person or entity may be considered negligent if they fail to act as any other reasonably prudent person or entity would have behaved in the same situation.

An Example of Negligence

You are walking into the dining room of a restaurant when you suddenly trip and fall. After the accident, you realize that guests must step up to enter the dining room, but there was no warning about the step and the area was not well-lit. In this case, the restaurant owner could be considered negligent because he failed to warn customers about this potential hazard, and you may be able to hold him accountable for your injuries through a lawsuit.

If I File a Lawsuit, Who Am I Suing?

Keep in mind that personal injury lawsuits are filed against the person or entity whose negligence directly caused your injury. Our law firm handles cases against:

  • Doctors, hospitals and nursing homes who fail to provide proper care to their patients

  • Motorists who negligently maintain or operate their vehicles

  • Property owners and landlords who do not properly maintain their premises or fail to provide adequate lighting and security

  • Dog owners who fail to exercise reasonable care in allowing their pets around others

  • Trucking companies that overload their vehicles, require their truckers to drive with little sleep or are otherwise negligent in running their businesses

  • Pharmaceutical companies that sell defective drugs or fail to tell patients or doctors about dangerous side effects

What Happens During a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Our lawyers will collect evidence to support your claim that another’s negligence caused your injury. This evidence may include:

  • Witness and expert testimony
  • Copies of video surveillance tapes of the accident
  • Columbus police reports and medical records, as well as any other relevant documents

Next, we may draw up a complaint, which is filed in court and officially starts your lawsuit. The complaint will include information about your injury and the accident, and detail how another’s negligence directly caused your injury.

After the lawsuit has been filed, our attorneys will review any proposed settlements the defendant (the person/entity being sued) and their insurance company may offer. While settlements are meant to be beneficial for both parties – by providing you with compensation in exchange for dropping your lawsuit – the defendant may not offer you a fair amount.

We can negotiate the terms of any proposed settlement to ensure it accurately reflects your injuries and, if not, we will take your case to court. Morgan & Morgan is proud of its reputation as a trial law firm. Our attorneys are not afraid to bring cases to trial to recover the compensation their clients deserve.

How Much Do Your Columbus Attorneys Charge?

The attorneys in our Columbus office will only charge a fee if you are fully satisfied with the verdict you have receive. The fee is usually a percentage of the award or settlement.

In a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for any losses resulting from your injury, such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Household accommodations
  • In-home health care aides
  • Pain and suffering

The amount you may be able to recover will vary depending on your age and the extent of your injury, among other factors.
