Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I do if I am injured in a car accident?

    First and foremost, seek proper medical attention. Gather as much information as possible about the other driver(s), including their name, address, insurance information, etc. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses or police officers who may be present. Document, document, document! Take pictures of all vehicles involved and any visible injuries (cuts, bruises, etc.). You’ll also need to notify your insurance company. It’s a good idea to keep a detailed journal documenting your medical treatment and how you are feeling or progressing. And, if you are unable to work, get a statement from the hospital emergency room doctor or your doctor saying you cannot work and give this to your employer. Last but not least, contact the Columbus car accident lawyers at Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC right away for a free case evaluation.

  • Do I have a personal injury case?

    If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have a personal injury case and may be entitled to damages. Contact Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC for a free consultation and case evaluation.

  • How much is my case worth?

    This is the “million-dollar question,” and it is the most difficult one for any attorney to answer. The value of a case is based on a number of factors, including the type of injury, its effect on your daily life, the amount of any past and potential future medical bills, lost wages (both in the past and in the future), pain and suffering, and whether the injury is permanent or has left scars. Each case and each client is unique. Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC is dedicated to helping you obtain full and fair compensation you are owed after an accident o rafter being harmed by someone else’s negligent actions. Contact us today for a free personal injury consultation.

  • How long do I have to file a claim?

    Generally, if you are injured in an accident in Ohio, you will have two years from the date the accident occurred to either settle the case or file a lawsuit. In the event that your loved one died in an accident, the clock starts running on the date of death (in most cases).

  • How long will my personal injury case take?

    Many factors determine the amount of time it will take to resolve a personal injury case. The last thing you want is to settle your case too quickly while you are still being treated for injuries and/or healing. It is important that your case is evaluated completely before any sort of resolution or settlement.

  • My injuries are very serious. Do you take those cases?

    At Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, we’ve devoted our practice to helping injured people have a voice against large insurance companies whose only goal is to turn a profit. No matter how serious the injury, we will fight for a fair settlement or jury verdict.

  • What if my case does not settle?

    Insurance companies take note of the attorneys that are willing take cases to trial and those who are afraid of the courtroom. Our Columbus personal injury attorneys have extensive courtroom and jury trial experience. Although only a small percentage of cases actually go to trial, from day one, your Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC attorney will be preparing your case for the potential of trial. The attorney you first work with will be the attorney who works on your entire case and will be the one standing next to you at the trial table should your case not settle.

  • Will I have to pay legal fees?

    When it comes to our legal services, we offer contingency fees. In other words, you don’t pay us anything unless and until we settle your case or obtain a favorable jury verdict. Call us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our lawyers who can explain how settlement money is used to compensate you for your pain and suffering, pay medical bills, and pay your legal fees.
