Ohio Premises Liability Lawyers

For quality, comprehensive representation of serious injuries ranging from broken bones sustained in a car accident to a disfiguring dog bite in an animal attack, the experienced Elyria personal injury attorneys of Smith, Illner & Gemelas Co. LPA are here to help.

Our team of compassionate lawyers holds negligent motorists, property owners and physicians — and their insurers — accountable for the negligence that injured you. We listen carefully to your account of what happened; conduct thorough investigation of the cause of your car accident, pedestrian or bicycle accident, or slip-and-fall accident; bring our fact-finding to skillful negotiation with an insurance company; and aggressively litigate, if necessary, to protect your rights in court.

Contact us by toll-free call from wherever you are in Lorain County and northeast Ohio. 888-506-0340. You can also email us. Home and hospital visits are available if your injury prevents travel. Our contingency fee policy means that you owe no attorney fee unless we win your case.
