Negligence and Car Accident Actions

If you are injured in a car accident or by the negligence of another (i.e., a slip and fall), The Law Offices of Warner Mendenhall, Inc. can represent you to maximize your compensation against the opposing insurance company. Once you are done receiving treatment for your injuries, our office will request your medical records from your health service providers, issue a demand to the insurance company, and negotiate compensation for your injury. If needed, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and take the matter to a jury trial. If you suffered a severe injury from a car accident or the negligence of another, then schedule a free consultation with us.


Defamation is the action of damaging the reputation of someone through slander (oral statement) or libel (written statement). If you lose your job, lost business, or suffer extreme emotional distress because of the defamatory statement of a third party, then schedule a free consultation with us.

Intentional Torts

An intentional tort is when a person purposely causes you physical harm or extreme emotional distress. If a person physically harms you, then it is the tort of battery. If a person puts you in imminent apprehension of physical harm (i.e., attempted shooting), then it is the tort of assault. If a person commits an act so heinous against you as to cause you extreme emotional distress, then it is the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress. If a person severely injures you by battery, assault, or intentional infliction of emotional distress, schedule a free consultation with us.

Invasion of Privacy

Ohio recognizes four separate invasion of privacy torts: (1) the unwarranted appropriation/exploitation of one's personality; (2) the publicizing of one's private affairs with which the public has no legitimate concern; (3) the wrongful intrusion into one's private activities; and (4) false light invasion of privacy. If a person invades your privacy and causes you severe injuries like loss of a job or business, then schedule a free consultation with one of our personal injury attorneys in Akron. OH.
