Considering how frequently Americans use vehicles to get from point A to point B, car accidents are inevitable. The same logic can be applied to the likelihood of being killed or injured in a crash.
The process of car accident injury litigation typically involves conversations back and forth between insurance companies. Before any court proceedings, your Eaton personal injury attorneys will negotiate between insurance companies. This is often how cases are resolved; through mediation and settlement. However, if we find that the negotiations are not working in your favor, we will take it to court and continue the fight for you to ensure you receive the best outcome.
Many people enjoy going for long motorcycle rides on the rural roads of Eaton. However, despite the beauty, there are inherent risks in riding a motorcycle. The risks are also, unfortunately, higher compared to regular cars for both passengers and operators of motorcycles. Your Eaton personal injury attorneys are ready and willing to help you or a family member in getting compensation after experiencing a motorcycle crash.
A truck accident can be an exceptionally hazardous situation for anyone not inside the truck itself. Trucks, whether they are a box truck or 18-wheeler semi, can cause substantial damage due to their size and inability to quickly stop. Fortunately, many of these truck drivers are required to operate with commercial driver’s insurance. This insurance provides extensive coverage. Your Eaton personal injury attorneys will facilitate negotiations between insurance companies to ensure you get the best possible outcome. If negotiations don’t work, we will litigate your case in court with the truck driver’s insurance company.
Ohio has strict liability when it comes to dog bites. This means that the victim of the dog bite does not need to prove the owner was acting negligent, they must only prove that they were in fact bitten. The dog owner may be liable so long as the victim can prove they were bitten by their dog.
Gathering evidence to prove you were bitten by a certain dog can be a challenging situation. Your Eaton personal injury attorneys are experienced in handling these types of cases and will be sure to take the correct steps in proving your case in court.
Personal injury cases can be complex, extensive, and particularly stressful. We recognize that your life, or the life of a loved one, has been changed dramatically as a result of your injury.
Each case is unique and can require extensive amounts of work to litigate and settle; however, we know you want to focus on recovering and getting back on track with your life.

Founded in 1806 by William Bruce, Eaton is located in Preble County, Ohio. Eaton is about 24 miles west of Dayton, Ohio.

Other streets around Eaton are also named after soldiers that served in the First and Second Barbary Wars.
According to the 2020 census, Eaton is home to 8,097 people. The local government is led by the mayor, vice mayor, and three council members. The council members are elected, and then they appoint the mayor and vice mayor.
The public school system has two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Additionally, Edison State Community College at Eaton is located in the city.
In its early days, the town grew steadily, due to its central location between crossroads. Tragically, an outbreak of cholera hit Eaton in 1849. Several hundred people left, and over 100 died. Ten years later, there was a large fire burning down over a dozen businesses. The city had to rebuild.
At the beginning of its founding, many of Eaton’s residents worked in the limestone quarries nearby. The tobacco and cigar industries grew larger. F.P. Filbert, a cigar company, became Eaton’s largest employer in the late 1800s. Today, the main industries in Eaton include manufacturing, health care, and retail.
Eaton is host to the annual Preble County Pork Festival. It started in 1970 to showcase Preble County’s exciting pork industry.
