Personal Injury Wrongful Death Insurance Claims

Ohio Personal Injury Attorney

Don't Be Victimized Twice.
We Fight Low-Ball Offers.

Attorney Burnside is an aggressive Southern Ohio personal injury attorney in areas such as car wreck, truck accident, motorcycle wreck, brain injury, disc herniation & premises liability.  We pride ourselves on our ability to provide quality legal care for valuable peace of mind.  Don't take it from us, check out what our clients are saying about us on our Client Testimonials page. 

Being injured because someone else was careless and/or reckless can be very frustrating.  Regardless of the type of injury one sustains, life is altered for that person.  The people and their families who experience injury become victims.  Personal injury lawyers exist to protect victims' rights.  Insurance adjusters, on the other hand, are charged with settling cases low.  In addition to our ability to take the burden of the insurance claim off the clients' shoulders, we strive for full value on every case and are not afraid to go to court (we have a mock courtroom in our office).

Ohio and Kentucky Personal Injury AttorneyHere is a list of the cases our office handles:

  • Car wrecks / Motor vehicle accidents
  • Trucking accidents / Semi collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents / pedestrian accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents / Impairment accidents
  • Brain injuries / Spinal Injuries
  • Premises Liability / Slip and Fall
  • Product liability
  • Fires and explosions
  • Railroad crossing accidents
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Accidental death
  • Intentional torts
  • Dog Bite / Animal attack

At the initial meeting, a FREE CONSULTATION, we gather the facts of the case, which evaluation includes:

  • Identifying all applicable insurance policies
  • Photos of any and all injuries
  • Obtaining any police report, including photos of an accident scene
  • Identifying witness names and contacting, if necessary
  • Understanding the pain and suffering of the client
  • Discuss complex legal issues such as subrogation 
  • Monitoring the progress of treatment / testing (MRIs, EMGs, etc...)

Once this information is secured (or as much of it can be gathered at the first meeting, we will determine whether your case is right for us.  We do not select all cases for representation.  We select cases cased upon the following factors:

  • Liability (the other person was at fault)
  • Injuries (can't have a personal injury case without injuries to the person)
  • Causation (the accident was the proximate cause of the injuries and damages)
  • Damages (there were /are medical bills, identifiable pain and suffering)

These are just some of factors we consider.  We also look to the likability of the potential client, extent of preexisting injuries, and the medical treatment the potential client received.  With tort reform being a very large stumbling block for personal injury lawyers around the country, it is important that the match between our law firm and the client is mutually satisfactory.
