Wrongful Death
The unexpected loss of a loved one is a tragic event. When that loss is due to a wrongful act or negligence, it is an injustice. The law cannot bring your loved one back, but it will provide you with justice against the person who caused the death, and it
Ohio has a specific section of the Ohio Revised Code that sets out the law concerning a wrongful death case, including who may make such a claim and the elements of recovery. Some types of compensation that can be recovered include loss of support, services, lost prospect of inheritance, medical and funeral expenses, and loss of financial support.

There are strict time limits in place and a probate estate must be opened to pursue a case.

Auto Accident
Vehicle accidents typically involve all types of road transportation including cars, motorcycles, bicycles and even pedestrians. Texting, cellphones, drinking and inattention are all common causes of accidents.
Of course, every driver is required to always keep their vehicle under proper control drive in a manner that may avoid colliding with other vehicles resulting in a tragic accident but the cause of an accident can often be complicated. To reconstruct the scene events, the assistance of engineers and other qualified experts might be needed. Our experienced law firm will find the best experts and use all legal resources at our disposal to get you the best settlement possible.

The vehicle accident laws allow injured victims to seek compensation to bring them back to the same condition they were before the accident occurred. Some areas of recovery include:

Scarring
Disability
Lost wages
Medical expenses
Pain and suffering
Loss of earning capacity

Some of the claims that an individual may be able to claim could also include the following:

Claim against an uninsured driver
Claim for serious injury
Claim for defective vehicle
Claim for pedestrians and passengers

Trucking Accident
Commercial trucks are the most dangerous vehicles on the road. As the number of commercial and recreational trucks continues to increase, the risk also increases for passengers, drivers and pedestrians on the roadways. The majority of trucking accidents a
There are many reasons why a truck accident may occur. Some of the more common reasons include:

Driver is driving fast to meet a tight delivery deadline
Driver is tired from driving for long periods of time
Driver is not paying enough attention to other drivers on the road
Driver is not sufficiently checking all blind spots of other drivers on the roadways
Driver does not leave enough space for his large vehicle between other vehicles
Mechanical failure and defective components within the truck
Overloading of the truck in a negligent manner
Inadequate training as to driving technique, and safety concerns
Unrealistic trucking company schedules and expectations that encourage drivers to drive fast, despite the safety risks involved.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I began practicing law in Ohio in 1988. Over the past twenty-three years, I have represented hundreds of clients in a variety of types of matters, mainly in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death and civil litigation. I have earned the respect of my peers, having served as President of the Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys, as a member of the Executive Committee of the Ohio Association of Justice, and by receiving the AV rating, the highest rating possible, from the peer review process of Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, reflecting the confidential opinions of the Bar and the judiciary in my practice area.

Mark Barbour

I received my law degree from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University, and my B.A. from Wittenberg University. My professional training began in law school when I clerked for a large defense litigation firm and handled claims for an independent insurance adjusting firm. My education continued upon graduation where I worked as an apprentice lawyer to the President of the Ohio Trial Lawyers Association and then worked my way up to partner of a very well regarded civil trial firm. I opened my own practice in 2007.

Beside a belief in the law, I believe strongly in community and family involvement. My wife Kate and I have two children and, starting with their preschool years, we have both served in several capacities in our community as volunteers. I also served as an elected official in our town for 4 years.

If you are looking for a lawyer with experience, knowledge and integrity, who shares your commitment to community and family, I welcome the chance to talk with you about your case. Call me today at 216-771-8188.
