I often get the qustion. "Do I need a lawyer for my personal injury insurance settlement." My response is, "Do you want to maximize the settlement value that you receive. Do you want to net as much money in your pocket as possible. Would you operate on yourself if you had a broken arm." The answers to these questions are always the same.

Assumption of risk is a defense to a claim of negligence. Depending on the State it can either be a complete defense or a partial defense. The defense is defined in Ohio as knowing and voluntary acceptance of a risk of injury that was a cause of your injury. In Ohio the defense is merged with contributory negligence and only defeats recovery if the conduct was 51% or more of the cause of the injury.
