[GRAPHIC: Ask Super Lawyers, Do I need a lawyer after a car accident in Ohio? Attorney Douglas J. Olcott responds.]

Douglas J. Olcott: If you've been involved in a car accident in Ohio, you should obtain a lawyer to look out for your rights. You're going to have issues regarding the payment of medical bills. You're going to have issues regarding repairs made to your vehicle, and you're also going to have issues if you yourself have been injured and you've missed any time from work. In Ohio, the other thing that a person needs to understand is, the law allows the insurance company who's paid for the medical bills to get reimbursed for those medical bills. It's called subrogation. If you don't have an attorney, you may take a lesser settlement thinking the money's all gonna come to you, only to be contacted by your insurance company who's going to be saying, "Hey, we need to be reimbursed." And if you haven't negotiated for enough money, you're gonna end up having to pay your insurance company back and walk away with nothing for the inconvenience, the pain and suffering, and the lost wages that you incurred.
