Drunk Driver Accident

Of the many types of motor vehicle accidents, the drunk driver accident is perhaps the purest example of negligence. The drunk driver could have avoided causing harm had he or she only called for a taxi rather than hitting the road. Instead, the driver changed the lives of the accident victim and family forever.

Hochman & Plunkett is a team of personal injury attorneys that aggressively seeks compensation for people injured by drunk drivers and the families of fatal accident victims. We have a record of success in car accident cases and the investigative resources and advocacy skills needed to win. When we represent you, our goal will be to obtain compensation for all losses, including medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Seeking Maximum Compensation For Your Losses

Ohio has dram shop liability laws, but these make it difficult to obtain compensation from the establishment that served alcohol to the driver. In most cases, we will focus our efforts on recovering maximum compensation from the drunk driver and his or her insurance company.

Hochman & Plunkett will act quickly to begin the legal effort. Working with a professional accident investigator, we will trace the sequence of events that led to the accident to assign liability to the drunk driver. Our lawyers will identify the accident victim's current and future medical needs. We will calculate the full value of all economic and noneconomic losses for inclusion in your claim.

You can depend on Hochman & Plunkett to provide strong representation at all stages of the legal process. Our drunk driver injury attorneys will work tirelessly seeking the best possible result for you.

Rear-end Collisions

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accidents. But just because these accidents happen every day doesn't mean victims walk away avoiding serious injuries. To make matters worse, the insurance companies often try to downplay these injuries to minimize compensation. We know that getting struck by a vehicle from behind - even at low speeds - can lead to serious neck and head injuries and other injuries. That's why you need Hochman & Plunkett protecting your rights. We will hold the negligent driver accountable.

Rear-end crashes are often caused by distracted, reckless or speeding drivers. Perhaps you were stopped at a red light when you were hit by a texting driver. A drunk driver might have failed to brake in time before hitting your vehicle.

If you are in a rear-end car wreck, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you feel fine, you might have a serious injury and not realize it. Some brain injuries might not be apparent until many hours or days after the wreck.

If you've been injured through no fault of your own, you may be worried about medical bills, lost wages and dealing with insurance companies. Hochman & Plunkett can help. From examining the scene of your accident to interviewing witnesses and obtaining testimony from medical experts, we know how to build the strongest case possible on your behalf. Contact us today.

Asleep-At-The-Wheel Accidents

Who's at most risk of a fatigued driving accident? You might guess long-distance truckers on Interstate 70 or Interstate 75. While sleepy truck drivers can cause severe accidents, any driver lacking adequate rest poses a danger to others sharing the road. A tired driver might cause a serious and potentially fatal car wreck after falling asleep-at-the-wheel.

What makes fatigued driving so dangerous? A sleep-deprived driver exhibits many of the same behaviors of a driver under the influence of alcohol. His or her reaction time may be slowed. Vision and judgment may become impaired. A driver could even fall asleep at the wheel and put motorists and pedestrians in grave danger.

But while blood alcohol content (BAC) can be measured at the scene of the crash, no standardized testing exists to measure driver fatigue. Proving driver fatigue caused a car accident can be difficult. We can help. Contact us today to learn how Hochman & Plunkett can prove fault for your car accident and obtain the benefits you need.

T-Bone/Intersection Accidents 

T-bone accidents are rarely minor. That's because crashes at intersections often involve high rates of speed and a vehicle hit on the side, where a passenger or driver might be seated. Vehicles involved in a broadside crash are often turned away from their direction of travel, potentially striking other vehicles and putting motorists and pedestrians alike at immediate risk.

At Hochman & Plunkett, we understand how difficult it can be determining liability for a side-impact crash. Some cases may seem clear-cut. Maybe the driver who caused your crash was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, the other driver may claim he or she had the right of way at a stop sign, red light or intersection. His or her insurance company may claim you caused the accident or even file a counterclaim.

Our legal team is here to help. From examining the scene of the accident and interviewing witnesses, to obtaining police records and testimony from medical experts, we leave no stone unturned to build a strong, successful legal strategy for T-bone accident victims throughout Southwestern Ohio. Discover the difference we can make. Call us today.
