$10 Million Verdict, Josh Terry V. Dr. Ernest Lindell, Toledo, Ohio

Josh was only a teenager when he was paralyzed by a surgeon who negligently plunged an instrument he was using into Josh’s spinal cord, causing permanent damage. Despite the obvious negligence, Dr. Lindell’s insurance company, ProAssurance, denied his claim and fought the case for many years by delaying the case and hiring lawyers to take the case to trial. Thankfully a Jury found in favor of Josh, and his mom and dad, providing the family the largest verdict in Lucas County history. Josh has used this compensation for education, equipment and housing better equipped for his paralysis and future medical care, including research and care into curing his paralysis.

$5.5 Million Truck Accident Settlement in Cleveland

An energetic and sweet married woman was on her way to a fitness center during her lunch hour from work when she was broadsided by an 18-wheel truck which had run a red light. While she broke many bones in her body the impact caused a traumatic and force fueled injury to her brain. This injury was particularly disturbing as she was able to talk and, at times, seemed normal. However, the brain injury made it so she was unable to remember conversations or be able to independently function to take care of herself or others. The settlement allowed her to obtain brain injury therapy that was cutting edge at the time and resulted in some improvement. Unfortunately, she is still unable to take care of herself, however a Trust set up to care for her has provided equipment and housing modifications.

What People Say About Us

Pauline Nieto

After interviewing several lawyers, my family and I chose Ron Wilt to represent me. Mr. Wilt was professional, knowledgeable, experienced in representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and he showed care and compassion during this stressful and difficult time. I am pleased with the decision to hire Mr. Wilt and thankful to have had him represent me.

Pauline Nieto

David Hughes

"We were extremely happy with Steve’s service. He is very easy to communicate with and very understanding of our situation. His knowledge of the law and industry was really impressive. I’d highly recommend Steve and CPW Law to others."

David Hughes

Keith Lewis

"I was referred to Marc Pera from another law firm. Marc and the CPW law staff was excellent. It wasn’t a quick process, but everyone was very patient with me. I spoke to everyone a the firm a lot and trust them with everything. I would definitely highly recommended CPW law to others and have referred family members since."

Keith Lewis

Mark Truitt

I hired Ron Wilt to represent me in a case. He was very caring and compassionate, so much that I didn’t believe that anyone could act the way he did. He was very passionate and concerned about our case. I even had Ron’s personal numbers to contact him. He was always available anytime day or night. We lived over 4 hours away from Ron and he came to our home multiple times to show us that he was there for us. I have and would absolutely recommend Ron and CPW Law to others.

Mark Truitt

Erin Maley

"I heard about Marc Pera when my family was in a horrific car accident. I lost my husband in the accident. The medical bills were overwhelming and I was not in a state to deal with any of the chaos. There were several attorneys that reached out to me, but I wanted to hire the best and someone I could trust. A close friend gave Marc’s name to me as a recommendation. During my first conversation with Marc, he offered to come to me at the hospital for my convenience. He did a great job of explaining to me exactly what was happening. He took all of the medical bills and pressure off of my plate. It was obvious that he cared about a lot more than the money. Marc truly cared about my daughter & myself. He did a great job looking at the mere circumstances other than just the legal standpoint. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone in a situation similar to ours."

Erin Maley

Timothy E. White

"It was as a result of a very unfortunate outcome from what should have been a fairly straightforward medical procedure for my wife that our family was introduced to Steve Crandall. I can honestly attest to Steve’s character and integrity, even more evident as we progressed through the course of my wife’s case. I was especially appreciative of his guidance, thoroughness, and patience with regard to all of the legal matters, professionally and as a gentleman, since this was an avenue that my family and I had never travelled previously and was sometimes uncomfortable for us . Yet, his sound counsel provided a lot of the assurance we needed, morally as well as a peace of mind due to our medical financial situation. I could only hope that if our paths would cross again at some point that it would be under more pleasant circumstances. However, I would not even hesitate to contact Steve Crandall if I were to ever require his expertise in a similar situation again, nor waver from recommending his commendable services to another."

Timothy E. White

Sharon Syner

We were referred to Ron Wilt by another attorney in West Virginia who said he would find us the best attorney in Kentucky, and he did. Ron did a great job of keeping us informed and was always available to us. We had a wonderful experience working with him and I would definitely recommend him to others.

Sharon Syner

Shari H.

"I contacted Steve Crandall after my husband sustained a permanent injury as a result of negligence on the part of his physicians. After meeting with him, it was clear that he thoroughly understood the issues with our case. Due to fact that I waited to contact an attorney, we did not have much time before we exceeded the statute of limitations. Steve, and his staff, wasted no time in obtaining my husband’s medical records and proceeding with the case. Throughout the entire process, I was so impressed with how prompt Steve was in returning phone calls and emails, and his willingness to take as much time as needed to answer any questions that I had. The interaction that I had with his paralegals regarding obtaining my husband’s medical, financial, and educational records was equally impressive. I could not be more pleased with how Steve handled the case, and the end result of it."

Shari H.

Belinda Pope

"The first time we met Steve Crandall was at a very traumatic and difficult time. My family, the community and I were all grieving the death of my sister. Steve was very comforting and reassuring. He came to Toledo and met with our entire family. During that meeting he gave us great confidence and was very interested in my sister and her life. Steve was thorough throughout the entire process and became like a friend of our family. A lot of great things have happened since he resolved the case that has given us peace and a sense of victory. Steve was our champion and helped us to be heard. We would highly recommend Steve to others and have referred many people to him since."

Belinda Pope

Phillip Peerce

Ron Wilt was sympathetic and understanding to the situation at hand. He was available to talk with at all times and was very responsive. Ron was able to achieve great results and I wouldn’t hesitate to utilize him again if the need arose.

Phillip Peerce

Bobbi Shatzer

"CPW Law was extremely professional and very helpful. They were good at keeping me well informed and very upfront with all the information. Marc Pera and the entire staff spent time to make sure I was prepared. Everyone was nice and I am very greatfull for everything they did."

Bobbi Shatzer

Pattie Gordon

"When my family and I met Steve, he was compassionate and caring. He made us feel very important and it showed. Steve generally cared and he truly cared about my father. Our family was going through an awful storm after losing our father and Steve was the rock that kept the family together. He would come to our house to meet with the entire family and made everyone feel comfortable by acting down to earth and easy going. Steve was always there for us and very prompt. Since our case, I have referred other people to him. He comes highly recommended."

Pattie Gordon

Christopher R. White, MD

Having been represented by Mr. Wilt as my attorney in the past, I would highly recommend him as a former client. I have always found Mr. Wilt to be diligent, prompt and knowledgeable beyond my expectations. His expertise in his field exceeds that of any attorney that I have ever encountered in my both my professional and personal experience with the law.

Christopher R. White, MD

Bill Holladay

Ron Wilt’s knowledge in the medical industry is just tremendous. The compassion he has and patience he takes is second to none. He is very professional and passionate about his cases and takes extra time with his clients to explain every detail that is needed to get through the process. I have recommended Ron to several people that has been in a similar position that we were. He comes highly recommended

Bill Holladay

Doug Ferris

"I got a good feeling that Marc Pera understood the severity of what we were going through right away. He really cared. Marc is a great person and was very patient with me throughout the entire process. The office staff was also very helpful. We were highly pleased that he was able to get us a great outcome."
