Mr. Abel and Mr. Moore have handled hundreds of major cases regarding death and serious injury resulting from automobile accidents. This area of practice also includes representing clients injured in automobile accidents where the other driver either had no insurance or insufficient insurance to cover the claim. These claims are called uninsured/underinsured motorists claims. There is no fee for discussing your case with Mr. Abel or Mr. Moore and all personal injury cases are taken in on a contingency fee basis. The contingency fee is exclusive of costs and/or expenses which may be advanced by the attorney.
Frequently consumers are injured as a result of exposure to dangerous/defective products. These products range from defective machines at the workplace to dangerous chemicals and solvents, asbestos, household cleaners, lawn and garden equipment and stepladders, just to name a few.
Premises Liability (Slip/Fall cases)
Clients are commonly injured because they fall at commercial locations such as stores. Under appropriate circumstances, compensation for injuries is available in these cases.
Clients who are attacked and bitten by animals such as dogs are often seriously injured. Under appropriate circumstances, compensation is available to clients for these injuries.
Wrongful Death cases
Under Ohio law, a surviving spouse, parents, and children are presumed to have suffered damages in the event of the wrongful death of a person. Whether the death occurs as a result of a workplace injury, an automobile accident, a slip and fall, an animal attack, or for some other reason, compensation and money damages may be available.
Uninsured / Underinsured
Uninsured/underinsured claims frequently involve automobile accidents where serious injuries occur and where the party who caused the accident had either no insurance or insufficient insurance to cover the losses. Under appropriate facts and circumstances, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage may be available to cover the shortfall. These cases can be difficult and highly specific. Only an attorney knowledgeable about uninsured and underinsured motorists claims and insurance law should handle such cases. In most cases, the client's insurance premiums will not be affected by making these types of claims.
**All of these types of cases are taken in on a contingency fee basis, exclusive of expenses which may be advanced by the attorney.
