Did you know that the vast majority of traffic accidents are caused by some type of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of one or more drivers? Speeding and drunk driving each account for approximately one-third of traffic fatalities across the U.S. each year (according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Distracted driving accounts for about one-tenth of fatalities.
If you were injured in a car accident, chances are that a driver was negligent, careless, or violated a traffic law. Ohio car accident lawyer John A. Lancione of The Lancione Law Firm can work with you to determine exactly what caused your accident and therefore who should be held responsible for your medical care, damage to your vehicle, lost earnings, and more.

How to Recover a Fair Settlement or Award After a Car Accident
It can be extremely difficult to recover a fair settlement after a serious car accident. You need to be sure that the insurance company takes all current and future expenses, injuries, and losses into account when paying your claim – but the insurer will be more concerned with protecting profits than paying claims in a fair and timely manner.
This is where a skilled Ohio car accident attorney can make a significant impact. In addition to properly valuing your claim, an experienced attorney such as John Lancione can put the appropriate amount of pressure on the insurance company to settle your claim – or can take your case to court to pursue an award on your behalf.
