Our Lebanon Personal Injury Lawyer Fights for You

Ohio firm delivers aggressive legal counsel during your accident recovery

For more than 25 years, Ernst & Associates has delivered aggressive advocacy to southwest Ohio clients who have been unjustly harmed by others’ negligence or reckless disregard. If you or another family member has been injured by someone else’s actions or a loved one has died from abuse or negligence, it’s essential to contact an experienced personal injury attorney whose goal is to see that you are compensated fairly. Our small Lebanon firm litigates cases arising from auto accidents, falls on unsafe surfaces and other types of incidents. Regardless of the specific circumstances or adversary, attorney Dave Ernst will use his experience to help you obtain a settlement or verdict that holds the responsible parties liable for their negligence and frees you from the burden of injury-related expenses.

Dedicated attorney seeks damages for people hurt in motor vehicle accidents

A motor vehicle accident can disrupt your life in an instant. You can seek relief from an at-fault motorist if you’ve been hurt, but disagreements often exist about who’s to blame, so it’s crucial to retain an advocate who can prove your case. Our significant background in this area gives people injured in crashes the support they need to battle negligent drivers as well as the lawyers and insurance carriers who represent them. Never assume that your insurance company is seeking a fair and complete financial award for you. Insurance companies are businesses focused on making a profit. Too often, they pressure policyholders to accept settlements that don’t cover overwhelming medical bills and are far less than what they deserve. We assist Ohioans injured in collisions involving cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles to help them overcome difficult circumstances.

Assertive advocate works to hold negligent parties accountable

To help Ohio injury victims collect compensation for healthcare costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other types of damages, we take on cases stemming from:

  • Brain and spinal injuries — A fall or some other traumatic event can cause serious harm to the brain or spinal cord. Effects of these injuries might not immediately present themselves, so we coordinate a detailed evaluation of your situation and seek payment to cover current and future damage.
  • Workplace accidents — If you’ve been hurt on the job, faulty equipment or some other factor might give you the ability to collect payment in addition to what is available under workers’ compensation.
  • Dog bites — Ohio pet owners are responsible for the injuries caused by their animals even if they were not aware of the danger that existed. After a dog bite or some other type of attack, we work to collect what you are owed.
  • Defective products and hazardous substances — Our firm goes after negligent manufacturers and others who hurt people when their products fail or when they expose individuals to toxic chemicals.
  • Nursing home abuse — When care at a nursing home is substandard, vulnerable elderly residents suffer. In cases of neglect and abuse, we act quickly to hold liable parties to account.
  • Wrongful death claims — We represent personal representatives in cases of fatal negligence and intentional misconduct so that family members can recover costs for final expenses, income the victim would have earned, and the loss of companionship caused by the death.

We handle these and other types of personal injury lawsuits throughout southwest Ohio, including West Chester, Mason, Lebanon and the surrounding areas.

Experienced litigator guides victims through the injury claim process

Under state law, you only have two years from the date of an injury to file a claim. Whether your matter is best handled through negotiation or litigation, you can count on us to protect your interests. Our firm has a proven track record of loyalty to our clients, and we diligently pursue every avenue to secure the compensation you deserve. No matter what individuals or businesses are responsible for your condition, we use our investigative skills and legal knowledge to structure a compelling argument tailored to your situation. Even if you bear some fault for the injury, you can still recover damages as long as you are not more than 50 percent responsible. We’ll outline the pertinent legal standards and, when appropriate, call upon professionals in the medical, geriatric, vocational, accident reconstruction and actuarial fields to serve as expert witnesses.
