Allstate handles millions of claims each year, including auto, property, and personal injury claims. However, a lawyer may be a good option to represent you and handle these insurance companies for you.
A lawyer knows how to communicate effectively and promptly with the insurer, while you might be unsure of what not to say. They also know what a reasonable settlement looks like in your case. You are not required under law to retain a lawyer in this situation, but doing so could alleviate some stress. Your representative could use their resources and knowledge for your claim’s benefit.
The Damages You May Be Eligible to Collect From Allstate
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could collect damages from Allstate. If you were involved in an auto accident or another kind of personal injury incident, you could recover compensation for the problems you’re experiencing today and expect to face in the future.
A lawyer from our firm can examine the incident and build a case for fair compensation. If you were in a car accident, you could recover damages based on the other driver’s auto insurance policy, as Ohio is a fault state. If the other party has Allstate, the damages you can claim could include:
- Current and recurring medical bills for treatment
- Bills for ongoing care
- Other out-of-pocket expenses related to your injuries (or the incident)
- Lost work wages, bonuses, benefits, and tips
- A reduced earning capacity due to an inability to work
- Pain and suffering damages
- Repair or replacement costs for your vehicle or another piece of property
- Wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one in the incident
Your lawyer will inform you of all possible opportunities to collect damages.

Our Team Knows What to Watch Out for When Negotiating With Insurers
Allstate’s adjusters might try to resolve your claim without considering your needs. They might try to diminish your needs and medical prognosis. You don’t have to leave it up to Allstate to determine what damages you need. Put your case in the hands of a lawyer from The Fitch Law Firm LLC instead.
Mr. Fitch has 30+ years of accident and personal injury law experience, and our results have been noticed by major media outlets everywhere. We’re very confident we can take on your case.
Let Us Get Started on Your Case Right Away
Ohio law sets statutes of limitations for how long we have to file a lawsuit. It’s important to meet the time frame that applies in your case. If you want to file a personal injury lawsuit, generally speaking, you have two years after the day of your incident to do so, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10.
If you lost a loved one in an accident and want to file a wrongful death lawsuit, generally speaking, you will also have two years, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
Even if you’re unsure whether you want to file a lawsuit, it’s still important to consider the statute because it helps in negotiations. It may be difficult to reach a fair settlement for your case if the statute is too near.
