Ohio Civil Litigation Attorneys

Helping Ohio Residents Get the Compensation They Deserve

When you have been wronged or injured, you need justice. Sometimes, a criminal court will punish the offender, but that still doesn’t help resolve your issues. You need direct compensation to pay you back for your pain and losses. This is where civil litigation comes in.

Civil litigation is where one party sues another, seeking monetary compensation and other forms of legal remedy. These disputes can involve various issues such as breach of contract, personal injury, property disputes, defamation, and more. 

At Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C., we provide comprehensive legal services for people seeking civil justice. Our experienced attorneys are dedicated to providing the best possible representation, and our team will strive to ensure that you get the restitution you deserve. We understand that every case is unique, and we take a personal approach to all our cases.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

Personal injury lawsuits arise from a broad range of incidents, including car accidents, slip-and-fall incidents, and workplace injuries. 

These suits can pay you back for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and lost potential wages

To win a suit, you must prove that the defendant had a duty to care for your safety. They breached that duty through their negligent or intentional conduct, and this breach caused your injuries or harm. Then you must prove the extent of the damages by revealing the costs associated with those damages.

Personal injury lawsuits come in many forms. Here are just some that our firm can handle.

Medical Malpractice

You can file this suit when you have suffered harm from a healthcare professional’s negligence or misconduct. This can include anyone involved, such as doctors, nurses, or even clerical staff. You can hold any medical professional who provides improper treatment accountable. 

Wrongful Death

Sometimes the injured party does not survive, and their living family members need compensation. In these cases, they can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits can compensate for the same damages as any other personal injury suit, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. They can also provide extra support for funeral expenses and the loss of support that the deceased provided.

Civil Rights Lawsuits

When government officials or entities violate your civil rights, you can file a lawsuit against them.

These rights include, but are not limited to:

  • The right to free speech
  • The right to freely practice religion 
  • The right to equal protection under the law
  • Freedom from discrimination based on certain characteristics such as race, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation 

Civil rights lawsuits typically seek remedies such as injunctive relief and financial compensation for the damages these violations cause. 

Victims’ Rights Lawsuits

If you have been victimized by a criminal act, you have the right to sue the person who harmed you. Victims' rights lawsuits help ensure that you receive the necessary support, resources, and protection from the criminal justice system. These types of lawsuits vary, but they can include civil suits against your attacker, petitions for protective orders, and requests for restitution. The outcome of these lawsuits can help you receive closure, recover damages, or obtain justice for the harm you suffered.

Business Litigation

Business litigation lawsuits arise when there is a dispute between two or more businesses or organizations. 

These lawsuits can involve various issues, such as:

  • Fraud
  • Contract disputes
  • Unfair competition
  • Employment disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Intellectual property infringement

Business litigation lawsuits are often complex. They require a thorough understanding of commercial law and the practices of the industries involved. 

Our firm is up to the task of handling your business dispute. To help you avoid court, we will work to resolve your issues first through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. If the other side will not bend, we can represent you in a court of law. In your business lawsuit, you could receive damages, injunctions, orders for specific performance, or other legal remedies.

    - Former Client
    "Ian is the Best - Period!"
    I was facing life in prison for a crime I did not commit. After an initial conviction during a bench trial, Ian was able to get me a new trial based upon previously undiscovered evidence and I was found not guilty by a jury at the second trial almost immediately upon beginning deliberations. Ian saved my life.
