If you or someone you love was injured in an incident or accident in Cincinnati that may have been caused by negligence, wrongful actions, or the reckless behavior of another, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the guilty individual or group. Doing so can give your family peace of mind. The experienced and compassionate Cincinnati personal injury lawyers at Bey & Associates can help make both possible.
Personal injury law encompasses any and every type of injury claim that can be filed during the aftermath of an accident or incident that shouldn’t have occurred. Before a claim is filed, you must ask yourself one question: “Could this have been prevented?” If the answer to that question is “yes,” and injuries or suffering resulted, it may be possible to see your claim succeed in court.
If an incident could have been prevented and should have been prevented, it may be possible to prove that negligence happened. In other words, if someone should have acted yet didn’t, or took the wrong actions entirely, they may have been acting negligently or recklessly. When a drunk driver causes a car wreck, this is an example of negligence. Another example is when a hotel janitorial team fails to clean up a spill or place warning signs around a spill, thus causing someone to fall and injure themselves.
Our Ohio injury attorneys are happy to speak to you regarding your case for free and let you know if you have a potential claim. Filing a claim may let you and your loved ones receive financial compensation that can go towards recovery costs and more. This compensation can make it easier to get back on your feet again after a painful injury that could have been avoided.

How We Approach Personal Injury Cases
As personal injury lawyers, we understand that the people coming to us have been hurt and don’t know what to do. Ultimately, they need help and we wish to provide the best legal services possible to those who need it.
We have experience in all kinds of personal injury cases. Even if you feel that your situation is uncommon, we are happy to listen to you and see how we can help. We’ve seen all types of cases and will do everything we can to assist you.
Our process typically begins with an obligation-free consultation. Here, we’ll hear your story and will talk about what happened to you. We’ll also get an idea of the damages that you’ve suffered. Then, we’ll start to assess the validity of your case and if we think you can have a successful outcome should you choose to pursue legal action.
The decision to take a case is not one we make lightly. We carefully examine what you’ve told us and speak to the fellow attorneys in our office about the positives and negatives about proceeding with the case. You will be informed if and when we decide that we will represent you, and you can make the decision from there.
When proceeding in a legal direction, we’ll always keep you informed. While you may want results as soon as possible, the process takes time and it’s important to use that time wisely. When we’re preparing your case, we’re going to look into many different areas. Our lawyers may need to return to the scene of the accident to see if there’s any additional evidence to collect, such as photographs or eyewitnesses accounts, along with medical reports of the accident that detail your injuries. If your case would benefit from an expert witness, we’ll be working on talking to them and hearing their professional opinion of what happened to you.
We amass as much evidence as we can so we can prove that someone’s negligence hurt you through no fault of your own and you deserve to be compensated. Whenever you have questions, concerns, or want an update about the status of your claim, our personal injury lawyers will always get you answers as soon as we are able. You’ll never feel like you are missing information or are unaware of the status of your claim.
Is Suing the Best Option for My Family?
Many individuals believe that filing an injury lawsuit is more trouble than it’s worth. While many personal injury claims are complex and require a great deal of legal expertise, a successful settlement can bring a family closure after a traumatic event and even make complete recovery a possibility for an injured victim and their loved ones.
The compensation received for a successful claim can be used for:
- Continued care costs, including physical therapy
- Surgical costs
- Home care/modification costs
- Other medical costs
- Loss of wage costs
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering costs
- Loss of companionship and comfort
It’s possible you may have some trepidation about pursuing a personal injury claim. You may be worried about how long the process takes when you wish to put it behind you. But this doesn’t change the fact that you’re going to need time for your injuries to heal and you’ve incurred expenses and damages. Choosing to not file a claim could possibly mean facing more trouble down the road. It’s imperative to have someone who will stand up for you. When your lawyer calculates the total of what your compensation should be, it’s difficult to imagine what you’re going to do if you don’t have a personal injury lawyer fighting for that settlement for you.
You have the right to file a claim. What happened to you was not your fault, yet you’ve sustained injuries and damages that you have to live with. This is especially true for those with catastrophic injuries, or injuries that will prevent one from gainful employment. Not only is this a major life adjustment—you could have to relearn how to do everyday tasks or learn to use certain medical equipment—but you also need to be able to keep up with expenses with this new way of life.
Affording the costs and trying to get back to normal is not an easy task—and paying all the medical bills while missing work at the same time could put you in a difficult situation financially. Your compensation can give you financial peace of mind so you can look toward the future without worrying about how you’re going to pay certain bills or if these will negatively affect your credit.
Even if it takes time or you’re worried about how it will look if you file a claim, the bottom line remains true: you were wrongfully injured because of negligence. Bey & Associates firmly believes in standing up for those who have been harmed because of the fault of others.
In addition, filing an injury claim sends a message to the guilty individual, company, or group. That message states that safety must be prioritized. All Americans have a legal right to file a civil lawsuit against an individual or group that fails to prioritize the health and safety of others when acting or making decisions. Civil lawsuits can be filed in addition to any criminal charges that may already be in place and oftentimes speak louder than words. It also may cause the guilty party to change their behavior or adopt new policies that promote safety and possibly prevent this from happening to others in the future.
We’re Proud to Practice in Cincinnati
At Bey & Associates, we believe in helping those in need speak up against injustice. We believe in giving those who suffer from negligence a voice. To best accomplish these goals, we decided to open an office in Cincinnati, Ohio to help its residents just as we’ve helped Atlanta residents for years.
Cincinnati, one of the first founding American cities after the American Revolution, is a city rich in history and historic architecture. Cincinnati’s Music Hall and the Cincinnatian Hotel are two of the city’s most commemorated buildings. The city also boasts one of the nation’s most historical transportation museums, the Cincinnati Union Terminal.
Cincinnati rests along 22 miles of riverfront along the northern banks of the Ohio River. Numerous river embankments mark historical and architectural landmarks. The Queen City Square, which opened in 2011, is the tallest building in Cincinnati and third tallest in Ohio. Avondale’s Cincinnati Zoo is the second oldest zoo in the U.S.
“Cincy” is home to the Cincinnati Reds, the oldest Major League baseball team. Throughout most of the 19th century, Cincinnati was listed among the top 10 U.S. cities by population. From the period of 1840 to 1860, it was the sixth-largest city in the nation, only surpassed by cities like New Orleans. In 2016, the city was named the “fastest growing economic power” in the Midwestern United States.
When choosing where to open our personal injury firm’s second practice, Cincinnati seemed the obvious choice. From everything to the city’s gorgeous buildings to its annual riverboat celebrations and racially-diverse history, Cincinnati is a place that thrives on forward momentum and progress—much like our practice.
