Were you or someone you love injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver? If so, you do not have to fight for financial compensation on your own. Our Cincinnati drunk driving accident team will help you identify the at-fault driver and prove the accident was alcohol-related.
At the Fitch Law Firm LLC, our client support team will assess your case’s value based on your injuries, the cost of any treatments they require, and the value of any time they force you to miss away from work. We will help build your personal injury case by compiling and organizing the evidence, assessing your pain and suffering, and fighting for financial compensation within the allotted time. You can learn more during a free consultation.
Know What Your Drunk Driving Case is Worth
When you suffer injuries due to a drunk driver’s negligent actions, filing a personal injury case can help you get the financial compensation to recover from your losses. We will build a case to prove you are entitled to the following types of recoverable damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Property damage or loss
- Physical disability or disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
We assign a monetary value to these economic and non-economic damages when building your case. We also work hard to compile the bills, estimates, and receipts that prove the value of all your damages. Because this can include a large variety of documents, our team handles the paperwork for you while you concentrate on recovering your physical health and emotional well-being.
Start Your Fight for Compensation Right Away in Your Cincinnati Drunk Driving Accident
Ohio’s statute of limitations governs the deadline a victim of a drunk driving accident has to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Generally speaking, if you or a loved one was hurt, the personal injury statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the accident, according to Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10.
Similarly, and again, generally speaking, if someone you love was fatally injured, the wrongful death statute of limitations is two years from the date of their demise, per Ohio Revised Code § 2125.02. Should the statute of limitations expire, you will not be able to file your lawsuit at all, or it will be dismissed without ever being heard.
Either or both of these circumstances will mean you cannot legally compel the at-fault driver to compensate you, which could force you to bear the financial burden of the accident on your own. With enough notice, our team can help ensure your lawsuit is filed on time.

Compile the Paperwork Your Personal Injury Case Requires
When we represent you, we start by listening to your version of the cause of the accident. As we build your case, the documents we include in your evidence file and present to the at-fault driver or his insurance provider on your behalf include:
- Medical bills
- Medical records
- Medical referrals
- Witness statements
- Employment records
- Photos of your injuries
- Accident scene photos
In addition, we also rely on your car accident report to tell the story of the accident. A car accident report is required when anyone is injured, according to Ohio Revised Code § 5502.11. Because it will indicate the involvement of alcohol in the collision, we request a copy to help substantiate your case and fight for a favorable financial settlement on your behalf.
We understand that your injuries can have a long-term effect on your physical health and abilities. Let a team member know if your injuries prevent you from obtaining a copy of the report or from otherwise participating in your case. Our team will request these and any additional documents your evidence file requires if needed.
