Motor Vehicle

Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn are Columbus, Ohio, lawyers who can represent you regarding a motor vehicle collision, including a truck, RV, or car accident.

One of the most traumatic experiences that an individual will face is a motor vehicle collision. The shock of the collision may eventually give way to pain and injury, necessary medical treatment, and questions about your legal rights.

Unfortunately, insurance companies far too often take advantage of the resulting post-collision confusion by trying to get the victim to waive his or her legal rights and agree to a quick low-dollar settlement. Even worse, statistics show that up to 18% of Ohio drivers lack auto insurance, leaving injured persons with fewer options that will allow them to receive compensation for their injuries.

Our experienced attorneys at Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn make it their mission to hold insurance companies responsible for the negligent conduct of their insured drivers and to make sure injured persons receive fair compensation. Upon the occurrence of a motor vehicle collision, our attorneys will sort through the varying insurance coverage possibilities to help you maximize your recovery.

Depending on the type of collision and the parties involved, we will examine:

  • The negligent driver’s auto policy
  • Your auto policy for underinsured/uninsured coverage
  • Your no-fault coverage
  • Your health insurance coverage
  • Your life insurance coverage
  • Your umbrella insurance coverage
  • Your short and long-term disability coverage

Our attorneys at Cloppert, Latanick, Sauter & Washburn have a track record of success representing motor vehicle collision victims in negotiation, mediation and at trial. We realize that properly representing an auto collision victim goes beyond looking at an injured person’s medical records and crash report. Instead, our approach recognizes the need to ensure that an injured person’s medical bills and medical liens are settled prior to reaching any agreement on compensation with an insurance company.
