Miraldi & Barrett Co., LPA

Lorain County Law Firm Serving All of Ohio

If you have come to this site, you probably need help -- either in getting an answer to a question or in deciding whether you should hire an attorney after you were injured. This site has tons of useful information.  If you can't find the answer that you need here, you can always call us or send us an e-mail. 

Almost all of our current clients have been referred to us by prior clients. We do not rely on slick television or yellow page advertising nor do we mail out letters to people who were recently in auto crashes. Like you, we find that kind of ambulance-chasing offensive. Almost all of our clients are here because of "word of mouth" or because another attorney recommended that they talk to us.  They are here because they want to be treated fairly.  It's that simple. 

Since this firm was started in 1949, we have helped thousands of people just like you make recoveries that are fair and comprehensive.  In the process, we have earned a reputation for results and fair-dealing that has led to satisfied clients and recognition by the legal community. We invite you to see what our clients say about us in their testimonials and examine our verdicts and settlements. 

Our clients come from Lorain County, Ohio - and nearby Erie County, Cuyahoga County and Huron County.  After we finish their case, they let others know that they don't have to go to Cleveland to find highly-trained, result-driven attorneys. It is  former clients and other attorneys who get out the message that we take on insurance companies and beat them decisively.  The trial lawyers at Miraldi & Barrett  have been fighting for the people in cities like Lorain, Elyria, Sandusky and Norwalk for more than 60 years.

Highly Rated

Both Benjamin Barrett Sr. and David Miraldi have been recognized by their peers as excelling in the field of negligence and personal injury law.  Both were named Ohio Super Lawyers for the last seven years, 2010 through 2016. This rating is based solely on the evaluations of other attorneys and judges.  This honor is limited to the top 5 percent of attorneys in their field.   Both Ben and David have achieved an AV rating, the highest category possible from Martindale-Hubbel, again a rating based on peer review.

Fees May Be Less Than Other Personal Injury Attorneys

Most attorneys charge a certain percentage, usually one third of the recovery if the case is settled prior to suit, and forty percent if the case has to be filed. At Miraldi & Barrett, their fees are often less than those charged by other attorneys. They may charge a lower percentage if: 

          Fault is not disputed,
          Your injuries are undoubtedly caused by the other person's negligence, and/or
          The amount of available insurance does not fully compensate you.

This firm looks at the totality of the circumstances and arrives at a percentage that is reasonable and fair to both you and the attorney. Before entrusting your case to another law firm, please give them a call.

The lawyers at Miraldi & Barrett have been handling product liability claims for people in Lorain, Erie, and Cuyahoga Counties for over 60 years.

Spinal Injury

Ohio spinal injuries can have a devastating effect on victims and their families. Injuries can be temporary or permanent and can result in the loss of motor skills, speech, mobility, the ability to care for one's self, depression and even paralysis.  Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of spinal injuries.  the Lorain firm of Miraldi & Barrett can help you fight for your rights against the persons responsible for your injuries.

Victims of Drunk Drivers

Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for the devastation that they can cause on the highways. All too often an intoxicated driver causes a collision that leads to serious injury or death to others.  The lawyers at Miraldi & Barrett can help the victims of such irresponsible behavior.  For over 60 years, we have been handling serious injury and death claims for people in Lorain, Erie, and Cuyahoga Counties that were the result of someone's drunken conduct that led to a terrible car crash.

Wrongful Death

When a loved one is killed because of another person's negligence, the family is devastated.  The family needs help in sorting out the legal issues that arise from this tragedy.  Under Ohio law, the family members of the deceased person may have rights to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic losses.  Economic losses include the decedent's expected earnings used to support the family and the value of household services.  Non-economic losses include mental anguish and loss of companionship. 

Many times the circumstances surrounding a person's death are unclear.  Attorneys and private investigators may have to conduct investigation to determine whether another person or business is legally responsible for the death.  If you need help prosecuting an Ohio wrongful death claim, the Lorain County law firm of Miraldi and Barrett has handled many wrongful death cases in the past sixty years.
