Legal Options

The legal options will depend on what caused the injury.  In any case, these injuries are generally, too serious for the injured party to negotiate a fair and comprehensive settlement without an attorney. The interplay of damages caps analysis, subrogation, and future life care plans require the attention of an attorney. There are cases where an attorney may not be necessary, but cases involving serious personal injury and premises liability should be addressed by a lawyer qualified in complex personal injury matters.


DO NOT

  1. Destroy any evidence including social media postings
  2. Make any statements to an insurance investigator, agent, or private investigator. You should CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY PRIOR TO MAKING ANY STATEMENTS.  
  3. File a lawsuit without consulting an attorney

Each element of damages are assigned a separate value based on the individuals experience.

After two hip replacement surgeries, I was informed that one of the prosthesis was the DuPuy Joint and the other was very similar but manufactured by a different company. After several attempts to contact the manufacturer directly to discuss the claim, I was met with bureaucratic red tape that appeared to be insurmountable. I then turned to Joe Lyon of the Lyon Law Firm who immediately cut through the pro I highly recommend Joe if you are faced with the need for this type of litigation.Tim Ross
I met Joe during what was easily one of the worst times of my life. My husband had been in a serious accident and was a quadriplegic following that accident and remained in one medical facility after another until his death nearly four years later. We had contacted an area attorney who told us we absolutely did not have a case. Then we called a Cleveland firm that took the case and brought in Joe. Joe did so much of the work and became just like family to us. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone and be willing to guarantee that he will do anything and everything possible to get satisfactory results. He is extremely dedicated to his clients and very hard working. Mike and I came to think of him like a son, I still do; if it wasn’t for him I don’t believe our case would have been settled the way it was and may have ended up in a courtroom where the results can go any way.Donna Urchak
