Firefighters helping an injured woman in a carPersonal injury cases involve the representation of individuals who have experienced economic loss, often crippling injuries and  “pain and suffering” as the result of the negligence of another. We represent victims who have been damaged in ways that affect them for the rest of their lives. We never, ever, represent insurance companies.

If you have been seriously hurt, you should know your legal rights. A family can suffer as a result of negligence. Leppla Associates takes over the work of contacting and dealing with insurance carriers and those responsible for your injuries, by negotiating, then commencing and completing litigation through trial and appeal.

Our job as lawyers is to demonstrate your injuries and  damages, to achieve a complete, and fair, recovery.  In our justice system, monetary compensation is the basis for a reckoning.  We will aggressively engage in examination of the accident or event that caused the injury, all of the surrounding facts, and will never hesitate to call upon medical and/or technical experts for analysis and testimony as necessary.

Lawyers must be skillful interviewers, gathering information from witnesses, medical professionals, insurance companies, and victims. They also must be persuasive and capable communicators, and often must know how to demonstrate their case to a jury by way of models, PowerPoint presentations and other technology for graphics and visuals.

It is important to note that not all personal injuries can result in a successful lawsuit against another party.  In order to prevail in a court of law, an injured person must prove that the other party directly caused the injury through reckless, negligent, or wanton action or inaction.  Because injury law is complex, our attorneys serving the Dayton, Ohio area should be consulted as soon as possible after your injury to review your legal claim and determine your legal rights.
