Cleveland Car Accident Attorney Represents the Seriously InjuredFebruary 27, 2014
For more than 20 years, Cleveland car accident attorney Ryan Fisher has been protecting the rights of individuals who are seriously injured in automobile and motorcycle accidents. As a partner at Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA, he has the knowledge and experience required to help these clients obtain the maximum compensation for their injuries.
As the most common form of personal injury case, motor vehicle accidents affect millions each year. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that there are about 10 million traffic accidents each year, killing about 32,000 individuals annually. These cases require experience, determination, empathy and legal expertise for two main reasons:
◾As soon as a car or motorcycle accident occurs, the insurance companies begin fighting to avoid paying for towing costs, repair to the vehicle, medical bills, lost wages, etc. They have attorneys on staff and ready to begin working on defending the case immediately—even before the accident victim leaves the hospital.
◾In today’s world, the individual at fault often does not have sufficient insurance coverage to fully compensate the victim for what he or she has lost. Similarly, there are situations where two insurance companies point fingers at each other to avoid paying the claim, leaving the victim without assistance. In these common situations, an experienced car accident attorney knows where to find additional insurance coverage to compensate the client and forces the insurance companies to properly accept responsibility for the harm caused by their negligent customer.
“Unlike the insurance companies who try to protect their bottom lines at the expense of the client, our Cleveland car accident attorneys work tirelessly to safeguard the client’s rights and ensure that the client is fairly and justly compensated,” explained Fisher. “As soon as our firm gets involved, we send out accident reconstruction specialists who investigate the scene of the accident to preserve the evidence as early as possible. They test and examine the vehicles involved and determine the speed of impact, angle of impact, and the relevant position of vehicle on the road. They even analyze the skid marks on the road and the location of debris to help build the case.”
Following a recovery or settlement, health insurance companies, doctors and hospitals often claim an interest in the case. Armed with his knowledge of negligence/motor vehicle laws, health insurance regulations and bankruptcy laws, Fisher negotiates on behalf of his clients to reduce the amounts paid out to these third parties. He invests a significant amount of time and effort in this process to ensure that the maximum amount of compensation goes to the client rather than the other parties.
For his undergraduate studies, Fisher attended Bowling Green State University. He went on to attend law school at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. Fisher currently resides in Chagrin Falls, Ohio with his wife and two children.
