Personal Injury and Auto Accidents

When you are injured in Northeast Ohio

At Andrews & Pontius, LLC in Ashtabula, we stand ready to champion your cause when you have been injured by the recklessness, negligence, or intentional misconduct of another person or business.

Our attorney David E. Pontius is a member of the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers and the American Association for Justice (formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America), with long experience in litigation of personal injury claims and deep knowledge of Ohio personal injury law.  We fight for you to obtain the best compensation available under the terms of that law.

Do you have a case?

There are many types of personal injury cases that may be actionable—meaning that you may be able to recover damages from the person or organization at fault.  Personal injury claims resulting from motor vehicle accidents are the ones that we see most frequently, but we handle all types of physical and psychological injury cases:

  • Auto accidents
  • Motorcycle and bicycle accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Animal bites
  • Workplace injury
  • Toxic tort
  • Construction site injuries
  • Trespass
  • Wrongful death
  • Premises liability
  • Products liability
  • Truck accidents
  • Railroad accidents
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Property damage
  • Sexual harassment
  • Infliction of emotional distress
  • Slander

In order to collect on a personal injury claim in Ohio, you must prove negligence—failure to exercise ordinary care.  For example, a store owner who realizes something slippery has spilled on the floor but fails to clean up the mess within a reasonable time would be negligent. So would a driver operating a vehicle recklessly, resulting in your injury.

What is your claim worth?

Under Ohio law, the person or company who injured you may be held responsible for many kinds of expenses and loss associated with your injuries, including—

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost work time
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Household services
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Permanent disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional distress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Damage to family relationships

Our lawyers can help you identify your options and hire the best type of expert witnesses to prove your damages.
