When an individual has been injured in an auto accident, on the job, or at someone else’s property as a result of another person’s negligence, it is advisable to consult an experienced personal injury attorney. At the Cleveland area offices of Mark S. Frank, Attorney at Law, we specialize in protecting the rights of personal injury victims in Ohio, helping individuals receive appropriate medical attention and fair financial compensation.
Personal Injury – Who is Responsible
The first step in any personal injury case is to investigate who is responsible for the accident. Many people and factors may contribute to a personal injury. The next step is to make sure the victim gets expert medical care and follow through treatment of their injuries with qualified doctors. Once on the path to recovery, we begin to negotiate the claim.
For over 30 years we have worked cooperatively with insurance companies to arrive at a fair resolution on behalf of personal injury clients. However, if a settlement cannot be reached to protect our personal injury client’s rights, the law offices of Mark S. Frank are prepared to take the case to court. It is important to keep in mind that in most cases a personal injury victim has only two years from the date of an accident to file a lawsuit.
Contingency Fees – No Recovery, No Fee
The Cleveland offices of Mark S. Frank, Attorney at Law, are sensitive to the concerns and difficulties for personal injury clients. It is for this reason we handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. If we fail to make a recovery on behalf of our client, our client pays us no fee.
Some of the personal injury claims we represent are:
- Car Accidents
- Slip and Fall
- Workers’ Compensation
- Medial Malpractice
- Dog Bites and Animal Attacks
Because all employees are covered by workers’ compensation, there is no need to prove liability in workers’ compensation cases. However, the process to recover benefits can be complex. Mark S. Frank, Attorney at Law, guides workers’ compensation clients throughout to insure they receive the full amount of benefits to which they are entitled.
Wrongful Death and Permanent Injury
In severe personal injury cases, the process becomes more complex. The loss of a loved one entitles the family to:
- just compensation
- replacing lost income
- accounting for emotional, as well as physical injuries
For an individual who has suffered a permanent injury, we make sure a settlement accounts for future expenses and the funds required to provide for future needs. We consult with doctors and nurses to insure our client’s concerns are properly accounted for.
