A Message from Our Founder
Hello, my name is Darryl Isaacs, and I founded Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers with my father, Sheldon Isaacs, over two decades ago. We shared a passion for helping injured people to get the fair and just compensation they deserve and need to heal from their injury and go on with their lives.
Since we founded Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, we have attracted many like-minded legal professionals to our firm who share our dedication to justice for everyday people. We want to help level the playing field when you are up against big insurance companies and large corporations that don’t always want to be fair. At Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, we fight to get you the maximum compensation you are entitled to collect by law for your personal injury case or claim.
I was recently in an accident of my own, and I know how it feels when life is changed in an instant and without any warning. All of a sudden, you’re hurt, scared, and unsure about what the future holds. Because of my own accident, I know what it feels like to be helpless and in pain.

Insurance Is a Business, and Insurance Companies Want to Make Money
In all my years helping injured people get fair compensation, I have never once heard of an insurance company offering an injured party the maximum compensation they are eligible for without a fight. Insurance adjusters like to take their time estimating how small of an amount you will settle for, and if you’re injured and unable to work, they may think you will take whatever they offer you without seeking legal help.
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers employs attorneys who used to work for insurance companies, and we are well aware of the strategies insurance companies use to keep from paying you the maximum compensation you are entitled to collect. We cannot urge you strongly enough to speak to an experienced and knowledgeable attorney before you talk to the insurance people or sign any papers.
If they offer you a settlement right away, they may be nervous about how serious your injuries will prove to be down the road, and they are doing damage control. They want to settle your personal injury claim fast to avoid paying millions of dollars if, for example, your injury leads to disability or death. In exchange for a settlement, they will ask you to sign a release of liability form. Once you sign their paper, you will not be eligible for any more compensation from the liable party’s insurance company or your own. This is because your insurance company is counting on recovering any money they pay you for your accident injuries from the liable party’s insurance carrier. If you sign the release of liability, you are signing away your right to future compensation for your:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Wrongful death
With some serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, you won’t know the extent of your injury for weeks or even months after your accident.
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers Will Fight for You
Whether you need a Dayton truck accident attorney, were prescribed a bad drug, have been injured on the job, or have been involved in a major car crash, a third-party, such as a manufacturer, can also be held liable. Your experienced and aggressive attorney from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers will file a lawsuit, if necessary, to obtain evidence that the company or party has no obligation to disclose otherwise. Filing a lawsuit in civil court will allow us to do several things, including:
- Demanding access to files and records, including electronic
- The right to inspect all tangible evidence, including the injury site
- The right to inspect cell phones, and review transcripts of calls and text messages
- Subpoena witnesses to testify under oath at a deposition and at trial
- Propound interrogatories (questions to be answered under oath and in writing)
- Request admission of facts related to your personal injury case, under penalty of perjury
Lawsuits sometimes uncover evidence of criminal activity that caused harm, and criminal charges are filed in addition to the lawsuit. Our aggressive and relentless personal injury attorneys will find out exactly what caused your injury and who is responsible. We will fight to get you every penny of compensation you are entitled to under the law.
Ohio allows punitive damages for intentional fraud or a malicious action that caused grave damage and injury. Punitive damages are meant to punish a wrongdoer and discourage others from engaging in similar behavior. Because punitive damages are meant to punish, amounts awarded by juries can be high, especially if the defendant is a large corporation or a manufacturer of bad pharmaceutical drugs or medical devices.

It Won’t Cost You Anything to Enlist Our Help
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers will represent you on a contingency-fee basis; if we don’t get you your money, we don’t get paid! Statistics show that people who enlist legal help receive more compensation for a personal injury claim than those who try to negotiate a fair deal with the liable party’s insurance company on their own.
We Can Work on Your Case in a Timely Manner
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers works around the clock to assist you before:
- Evidence disappears or is altered.
- Witnesses forget what they saw or move away.
- The legal deadline for filing your case or claim expires, leaving you no recourse to recover compensation for your financial loss, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
Ohio’s Statute of Limitations May Apply to Your Case
As mentioned, we can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. Sometimes, we suggest beginning with this strategy. You should be aware that you have a limited time to file a lawsuit, though.
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, you generally have two years to take legal action. The deadline starts counting down from the date of your accident. You have the same amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit if you lost a loved one to an accident, perOhio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
Two years may seem like ample time, but building a case requires work. A lawyer from our firm has to investigate your accident, calculate your damages, and gather evidence. None of these processes stall the deadline, though. The sooner you get started, the better off you will be.
How You Can Support Your Personal Injury Claim for Compensation
When you work with one of our lawyers, they will handle your entire case from start to finish. You can focus on getting back to health and spending time with your family.
There are a few things you can do to support your case, as well. Consider the following suggestions to help protect your rights to compensation.
See a Doctor Immediately
Regardless of the type of accident you experienced, see a doctor immediately. Even if you did not have to go to the emergency room after the accident, make an appointment with your primary care physician. You may be suffering from severe injuries that are not apparent. Symptoms may not manifest immediately, either. If you delay treatment, your injury may worsen.
Additionally, seeing a doctor can support your claim for compensation. They can provide a prognosis that gives us an idea of how your injuries will continue to affect you. We can use this to estimate future medical expenses. Medical documentation can also help link your injuries to your accident, which is essential to holding a negligent party liable.
Follow through with Your Treatment Plan
Your doctor will prescribe a treatment plan, which may include physical therapy, medication, and follow-up visits. Make sure you follow through with any treatment your doctor prescribes. Keep your appointments and let them know about any symptoms that occur during your recovery.
If you don’t get treatment, an insurer may argue that you contributed to your injuries. They can then work to undervalue or outright deny your claim. Do not give them the opportunity to do this. Protect your rights and your health.
