Man Injured Crossing Street Receives Compensation
April 2013: Even at low speeds, a car can cause bone-crushing injuries to a pedestrian.

$500,000 for Woman Injured in Truck Accident
November 2012: The sheer mass of a large truck ensures that, in the event of a collision between it and a smaller vehicle, the smaller vehicle and its occupants will have the most impact damage. A truck’s size and weight also prevent it from stopping as quickly as a car would if the driver inattention leads to failure to notice an oncoming stop sign.
A 72-year-old woman was seriously injured by a large truck as it slid through a stop sign that the driver saw too late. The truck slammed into the passenger-side door and caused the woman to suffer cracked ribs, a punctured lung, a broken leg and other severe bodily injuries.

But what do you do if your crash was caused by another driver’s blatant disregard for the traffic laws?

Cincinnati Personal Injury Lawyer Gets Over Double The Insurance Company’s Settlement For Client
July 2012: A personal injury lawyer can make a big difference in your car accident case. This is perfectly exemplified in a recent case handled by personal injury attorney Mike Weisensel, one of the Cincinnati attorneys of O’Connor, Acciani & Levy.
Our client was rear-ended while stopped at a light in June of 2009. The car accident caused injuries to his neck which required periodic visits to the doctor. The insurance company’s settlement offer was too low to cover our client’s medical expenses. So the client contacted O’Connor, Acciani & Levy for help with his fight to attain a fair settlement amount.
The case was assigned to Mike Weisensel. Mike is an experienced personal injury attorney who has been with the firm since 2002. Mike saw his client’s low settlement offer and decided to take on the insurance company to get his client enough money to compensate him for his injuries. Though it was a difficult case, Mike took the insurance company to court and was able to convince the jury to award his client almost 2.5 times the amount of money ever offered by the insurance company.
Our firm is proud to have attorneys such as Mike, who go the extra mile to make sure our clients receive a just settlement from the insurance company.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, then call O’Connor, Acciani & Levy for a free consultation. Our attorneys have the skill and dedication necessary to take on the big insurance companies and get you the settlement you deserve.
