What are the benefits of hiring our Personal Injury Law firm?
Slater & Zurz personal injury attorneys have represented clients in over 30,000 personal injury cases throughout Ohio. They have a track record of helping the injured using our knowledge of the law and our many years of experience in and out of the courtroom.
The insurance companies responsible for paying compensation have trained experts called “adjusters”—their job is to minimize what they will pay you for your damages. Slater & Zurz injury attorneys know how to negotiate with these experts and this means more money for you. We have recovered more than $200 million in verdicts and settlements.
Our firm is recognized as a leader in its field by its peers and legal organizations. That is a testament to our ability, but an even stronger recommendation comes from our clients.
We are focused on listening to you, keeping you informed about your case, and making insurance companies listen. We will fight for you and deliver the best results possible.
When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
It is very important to get necessary medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident to make sure that your injuries can later be validated. You should document any initial treatment received whether at the Emergency Room, an urgent care facility or at your doctor’s office. If you have doubt about whether the injury is too minor, have it checked out by medical professionals.
Secondly, it is so very important to speak with a lawyer as close to the time of injury as possible. Personal injury claims must be filed within a certain amount of time in Ohio or the claim will be barred under the applicable statute of limitations.
If you delay consulting with a lawyer about your case—remember there is no cost and no obligation to meet with an attorney from Slater & Zurz LLP– that time period may run out and you (the plaintiff) may be prevented from filing a claim concerning your injury.
We know how to get you the results you need in your personal injury case. We’ve helped clients receive in excess of $150,000,000 in verdicts and settlements.

“Mr. Slater and Rick Zurz are lawyers who are caring, courteous and professional. Twenty – six years ago they represented my son in a head injury case. I was pleased with the results, that provided for his future. When this catastrophic auto accident occurred I recalled their excellent management of the previous case and contracted them again. I recommend them if you are looking for good honest lawyers.”
“I couldn’t have picked a better law firm than Slater and Zurz. They were friendly and helpful from the first call. They ask what you need and find the perfect attorney for you. Silas Pisani managed our case start to finish. He is knowledgeable, dedicated and goes the extra mile to make sure he handles everything for you. We would have never made it without his advice and expertise. We were lucky to have such a great attorney. Would highly recommend!!”

If I had questions throughout the process, he would answer them with no problem and with ease! In my opinion he’s the best!! =)”
