On September 21, we lost Ken Blumenthal. Our co-founding partner, outstanding lawyer and good friend was taken far too soon by an incurable, neurodegenerative brain disease, progressive supranuclear palsy.

We all will miss Ken, but his legacy of compassion and fighting for the underdog remains.

        "You NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases."
        Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.

        "Attorney Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with."
        Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.

        "Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly"
        From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.

        "Excellent Counsel"
        Jonathan Stoudt gave us excellent counsel during our time with him.

        "I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority."
        Mr Timothy Mahler represented me after a personal injury auto accident. He was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and experienced. I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority. I was relieved from the intricate and time-consuming tasks related to the accident, free to focus on healing and recovery. He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.
        - Cathy B.
        "I will forever be grateful for their help!"
        I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!

        "These attorneys always do what they promise."
        Attys. Mike Rourke, Sr. and Mike Rourke, Jr., helped us understand and settle all the legalities after my husband was hit be a car while riding his bicycle. Their extensive knowledge with injury cases, and their professionalism were ever-present, along with their empathy and understanding of what people experience after injuries that change lives. These attorneys always do what they promise, and in a timely and concise manner.. We would recommend Rourke & Blumenthal for anyone who needs legal services related to an accident or injury.

        "Our family is so grateful to have Rob Miller represent my daughter’s personal injury case."
        Our family is so grateful to have Rob Miller represent my daughter’s personal injury case. He is extremely knowledgeable about Ohio Law and was very patient with my numerous questions. Rob was always genuinely concerned about my daughter’s recovery and well being first. He is professional, knowledgeable, understanding, patient and we are so pleased with the outcome of the settlement. I would highly recommend Rob Miller to anyone looking for a top personal injury attorney.

      How Long Do I Have to File a Case?

      Every state puts a time limit on how long an injury victim has to file a claim, also called the statute of limitations. Ohio has a two-year statute of limitation on personal injury cases, which means you have two years from the date of you injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation.

      What Damages Can I Recover?

      Damages, or compensation, that can be recovered in a personal injury case can be divided into three main categories: special, general, and punitive. Special damages, also called economic damages, compensate for the financial hardships that accompany an injury, this can include medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work. These types of damages are usually quite simple to quantify since they are compensating for specific losses.

      General damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. Usually more difficult to quantify, these damages are also called non-economic damages since they compensate for all losses not associated with an actual number. The third type of compensation, punitive damages, is different from general and special damages in that their main purpose is to punish the defendant for their negligent actions. As such these damages are not awarded very often

      Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?

      Unlike insurance companies, Rourke & Blumenthal are your true advocates fighting for your best interest every step along the way. Insurance companies, more often than not, are looking out for their company’s profit, not what you need to recover well after an accident. Additionally, many people find that their injuries are more severe days or weeks after they sustain them. If you accept an insurance settlement before you know how serious your injuries are, you may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An attorney from our firm can fight to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
