Personal Injury
Columbus Personal Injury Law Firm
Attorney Mitchell Alter has been representing injured victims since 1981 and helping individuals recover compensation for their injuries. I have the aggressive determination and polished skills to obtain the highest possible awards in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. I help clients with serious injuries such as burns and coma sustained in auto collisions, commercial truck wrecks, workplace accidents, animal attacks and implantation of defective surgical products.

My firm handles your case on contingency basis.
Retaining an attorney should not add to the financial burden caused by an injury. My law firm seeks to bring you peace of mind during your recovery by handling your case on contingency. A contingency arrangement means we base our fees on the condition that you obtain an award for damages. We do not charge you attorney fees until we win a judgment or settlement in your case. During your initial consultation, we explain the contingency fee agreement and our billing process so that you know exactly what to expect.

Ohio statute of limitations
Ohio law imposes strict statutory deadlines for fling personal injury lawsuits in most cases two years from the date of injury. You may permanently lose your rights to pursue compensation if you miss the filing deadline. If you have any questions about whether you have a valid personal injury claim, contact Mitchell Alter. At our no-obligation, free consultation, we review the facts of your case and advise you about your rights.
