Advocating For The Injured Riders Of Ohio
The flat, open land of Ohio makes wonderful terrain for motorcycle riders. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are far too common, even among the most cautious riders in the safest conditions.
If you survived a motorcycle accident, contact the team at Willis Spangler Starling. At our office in Columbus, we represent riders throughout Ohio who need to recover compensation for their damages. These can include:
- Hospital bills
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
If you lost your spouse or relative to a motorcycle accident, we can assist you to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
What Is Comparative Negligence?
In Ohio, the victim of an accident can still be considered partially at fault for the accident. However, the victim can still recover compensation for their damages proportionate to the other party’s negligence. For example, even if the court rules that you are 10% at fault for an accident, you could still recover compensation for up to 90% of your damages.
Minimize Liability And Maximize Your Recovery
Ohio does not require motorcycle helmets to be worn by every motorcyclist. But if you’re not wearing your helmet and you’re seriously injured, the court may decide you’re partially at fault, lowering your recovery. The experienced personal injury firm of Willis Spangler Starling can not only help you identify all forms of compensation, but also help lower the perceived fault that the court may assign to you.
