Helping People Harmed by Another’s Negligence: It’s What We Do
GBM Law attorneys represent individuals and families who were harmed by another’s negligence. These cases typically involve cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, bicycles, tractor-trailers, dog bites or dangerous products. Whether the injuries were caused by another person, trucking company, business or government agency, our Ohio personal injury attorneys will do everything to ensure the responsible parties are held accountable and our clients’ rights are protected. Some of the cases we take on are cases that other firms have declined, or are otherwise considered challenging. We appreciate the confidence of other attorneys in Ohio that frequently refer cases to us that are outside their expertise, and we welcome the opportunity to assist in those situations so that the client receives the best result possible.
Types of Case We Handle
Unlike other firms that handle a little bit of everything, we exclusively practice personal injury law. It is our specialty and the only thing that we do. This includes but is not limited to:
Car Accidents: Car accidents may be caused by distracted driving, fatigued driving, drunk driving, unsafe maneuvers, or unsafe road conditions or design. We will take a close look at what happened and who was responsible. If the negligence of another driver or someone else caused your accident, you may be entitled to money for your injuries, including medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. While you focus on healing and recovering, we will fight for fair compensation.
Truck Accidents: With a heavy shift from retail shopping to e-commerce, the number of trucks on the road is growing, as is the need for truck drivers. Truck drivers go through a short four-week training course and then start driving a large commercial truck. When crashes with a large big rig occur, the damage is often devastating. Although the drivers may be inexperienced, the trucking companies are experts in damage control and reducing their liability. They may haul the truck hundreds of miles away or have damage repaired almost immediately after an accident to prevent the victims’ access to important evidence. When taking on a trucking company for a personal injury claim, you need an expert on your side.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists are at a greater risk of being involved in a fatal crash anytime they get on a bike. Injuries from motorcycle accidents can be very serious, including lower limb fractures, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
Brain Injuries: A blow or jolt to the head that interrupts the function of the brain is a Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI. Damage can cause long-term or short-term damage, and affect physical, mental, and emotional life., These injuries can seriously affect the victim’s financial stability and the ability to earn a living and provide for loved ones. About 2.5 million people sustain a TBI each year in the United States.
Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spine from a motor vehicle accident, fall or act of violence can result in paralysis or permanent disability. When an accident is caused by negligence, spinal cord injury victims may be entitled to significant compensation for their injuries, medical care, and caregiver assistance for the rest of their lives.
Wrongful Death: When a death is caused by negligence, a surviving spouse or family members may pursue a wrongful death action, which may include compensation for final medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of love and support, and lost income the victim would have otherwise earned over their lifetime.
Our case results are a testament of our long record of success in Ohio personal injury cases. We have worked with all insurance companies and are familiar with their tactics and strategies to downplay injuries and deny, delay, and defend insurance claims. We work swiftly and aggressively to protect our clients rights and ensure they get what they deserve; nothing less than full and fair compensation. Many of our clients are able to recover the maximum insurance limits available. Beyond just getting settlements and verdicts, we coordinate plans for future medical needs, from immediately after the accident to the rest of the victim’s life.
No Fees Unless We Win
We advance all costs for our clients as part of our contingency fee agreement. Injury attorneys, including the lawyers at GBM Law, are paid only when the client is paid, as a portion of your settlement. You do not pay hourly fees or have any out of pocket responsibility, so there is no risk to you. If we accept your personal injury case, it is because we believe we can help you. While we work up your case and fight to either reach a favorable settlement, or prepare for trial before a judge or jury, you can focus on your healing and recovery.
