Motor Vehicle Accidents.
The roads are riskier than ever with distracted drivers texting behind the wheel, more ride sharing services like Lyft and Uber, and greater speed limits on Ohio highways. Someone is seriously injured in a crash in Ohio every 5.2 minutes, according to the Ohio Department of Public Safety. And, 1 in 5 Ohio drivers is uninsured, adding to the complexity of a claim when you need to seek monetary and other compensation for your losses.
It’s frustrating when an accident is not your fault, but you’re dealing with the backlash of an incident causing serious personal injury issues.
You may be in pain and require costly medical treatment—bills pile up quickly. Or, a vehicle accident could interfere with your ability to return to work or perform the job you once had. Meanwhile, while your income goes away, your medical expenses don’t. Accidents are stressful, and you shouldn’t go through the experience alone.
The Czack Law Firm can help.
ADDRESSING YOUR NEEDS AFTER AN ACCIDENT
The events following a vehicle accident (car, truck, motorcycle, bus, or pedestrian) can be overwhelming and confusing. No one expects to be the victim, but it happens about a dozen times every hour in Ohio.
Insurance companies move quickly after a vehicle accident, and you may be contacted for information without knowing how to protect your rights. The worst mistake you can make is to deal with an insurance company on your own. After an accident, an insurance company will require paperwork and signatures from you—there are deadlines and decisions. An insurer might ask for a recorded statement and raise the issue of partial fault or pre-existing medical issues. This could quickly put you in jeopardy and prevent you from getting the help you need to recover financially.
The Czack Law Firm will give you peace of mind.

1 in 5 Ohio Drivers are Uninsured
Be sure you and your family are protected. Review your auto insurance declaration page yearly and ensure that coverage limits amounts are appropriate. The Czack Law Firm can advise coverage your family needs to stay safe on the roads and provide experienced counsel if you are the victim of an uninsured driver accident.
Why You Need a Medical Evaluation
One of the biggest mistakes victims of vehicle accidents make is not getting a proper medical evaluation after the incident. Documentation is critical. Even if you do not have broken bones or a severe, obvious injury, the physical aftermath of an accident can impact your health. That’s why we advise victims of vehicle accidents to get a medical evaluation, no matter what. Keep in mind, traumatic brain injury (TBI) can begin with headache, mood changes, dizziness, balance issues, and poor concentration. Even a minor injury can result in serious side-effects that could inhibit your work and home life on a permanent basis.
Truck accidents are often catastrophic and involve complex investigations. Truck drivers and trucking companies must comply with state and federal regulations, and you want a personal injury attorney who has deep knowledge of the latest laws to support your case. The Czack Law Firm has more than 30 years of experience defending and litigating serious truck accident claims. Every case is important, and you’ll connect directly with partner Michael Czack and his truck crash team, who will guide you through the process.
Common concerns our clients express after a truck or tractor trailer accident include:
First steps after a truck accident: We advise victims of truck accidents to seek medial attention and contact an experienced truck accident and personal injury lawyer like The Czack Law Firm. Do not give statements to anyone other than law enforcement.
When to contact a lawyer: Do not wait to contact a personal injury lawyer after a truck accident. Truck accidents often involve complex investigations and an experienced personal injury lawyer will protect your interests and help facilitate a just investigation. At The Czack Law Firm, our team includes private investigators, and we partner with others including accident reconstruction specialists and trucking experts. Investigations can lead us to examine road safety and analyze crash statistics from ODOT’s database. We can search the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for evidence of a trucking company’s crash history. We also consider potential defects or malfunctions in your vehicle that could have worsened your injuries. You want a personal injury lawyer that thinks outside of the box to protect your future.
How a personal injury attorney can prosecute your truck accident claim: Truck accidents can include complex investigations, gathering of evidence, involvement with insurance companies and medical specialists, and negotiations to secure a just settlement for damages. An experienced personal injury lawyer like The Czack Law Firm advocates for your best interests.
Truck accidents and wrongful death: Crashes involving commercial trucks are often very serious and can result in wrongful death. At The Czack Law Firm, we handle and litigate complex trucking accident cases and have a track record of successfully helping families and loved ones of deceased victims obtain fair compensation. Wrongful death cases are complicated and time-sensitive.
Trucking accident damages: You might be wondering how much compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other expenses are realistic to expect after a truck accident. The Czack Law Firm can advise on the damages you might receive as the victim of a crash with a commercial truck.
When a motorcycle accident occurs the result can be tragic. Most motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle. These crashes often occur due to no fault of the motorcyclist, but because of a car or truck motorists’ impairment, distraction or inattention, (not “looking” for motorcycles.) If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle accident, do not wait to contact a personal injury lawyer to investigate the case, negotiate with insurance companies and ensure that you receive a fair settlement.
