What Our Clients Are saying

Walking in to meet John at our initial appointment, I found myself in a situation I had never been in before. There was a lot of anxiety and even trepidation on my part. However, when I left the office that day, I felt as though I had been heard-and validated-in my feelings about the necessity of pursuing legal action. John listened to my story, responded to questions with patience, and took time to explain anything that needed to be clarified. That day I knew I would be represented well, and with integrity.

In every interaction and communication, I found that Rinehardt Injury Attorneys as a whole carried the same kindness, patience, and care that John had exhibited from that first appointment. At times, walking through the process seemed overwhelming on top of what I was enduring physically. Every person from the firm who contacted me for any reason was so helpful and encouraging. I can’t say enough about this group of people and their commitment to their clients.

There was never a doubt in my mind whether John Rinehardt was looking out for my best interests. Not once. With every conversation, I knew he was trustworthy. He never tried to put words in my mouth. I saw how honorably he conducted himself in the face of the less-than-honorable conduct of others in the mediation process. His excellence and integrity was clear the entire time he represented me. He genuinely expressed many times that he wanted my husband and me to be completely comfortable with any decision that was made. He communicated with transparency and sound advice. It was obvious, John was not “just” our attorney. John Rinehardt became our friend.

Our sincere thanks, John. You have been a true blessing to us. May you be blessed as well!

Automotive Accident
I was in an automotive accident and hospitalized for a month. John was able to get a settlement in a short period of time and without having to take the case to court. Very understanding and able to explain every aspect of the legal process so I knew all processes and stages. I will highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney

Personal Injury
During the winter I took a fall resulting in a fracture. The law firm of John K. Rinehardt came highly recommended to me for their ethics and professionalism. John and his staff were prompt, thorough and very well organized in representing me. I was treated with compassion and felt very confident that my situation was being resolved and therefore was able to focus on my recovery. The outcome of the case was positive and very fair. I would not hesitate to recommend Rinehardt Law Firm to others.

- Private Individual

My attorney John Rinehardt and his staff were very informative and very helpful in obtaining my settlement. They were very patient with all my questions. They fulfilled everything that they said they would.
I would very much recommend his services and would use them in the future if the need would arise

- Rochelle Frame

Car Accident
My wife was in a car wreck that injured her knee. The other driver was at fault, his insurance company was more than kind to take care of the bills until my wife needed surgery from her injury. Well that’s where Mr. Rinehardt enters the scene, we just wanted my wife’s bills covered. I was thinking this small town attorney, what can he really do? My wife wanted to stay close because she didn’t to travel to a big city. I have to say, I had to eat my words. Mr. Rinehardt and his entire staff were OUTSTANDING, made us feel like family, even myself and I wasn’t his client, they kept us well informed and told us to be patient. Not only did he get the medical covered, he got my wife a nice little settlement. We are not ones to file lawsuits, the first in either of our lives and hopefully the last but if the need ever comes up, Mr. Rinehardt and his law firm will be our choice. Thanks again John and thank you to all the Rinehardt Law Firm staff.

- Dennis Gast

From the first phone call through the end, everyone I talked to was genuinely interested in what I had to say and what brought me into their office. They treat you like family. I would call them again in a heartbeat. Have patience and let them do what they do best.

- Stacy Oswalt

The Rinehardt law firm is top notch. My case was not the typical case they handle but they took care of the matter and due to special circumstances waived their usual fee as well! What law firm does that?!? John, Stephanie and the entire staff are very courteous and professional.

Auto Accident
After an automotive accident and dealing with a very difficult insurance company /agent to settle my claim, I sought the help of Rinehardt Law Firm. Attorney John and his staff- Gigi, Stephanie and Patty- were wonderful throughout the process. If it weren’t for their diligence and hard work, I would still be fighting the insurance company. I highly recommend Rinehardt Law Firm to anyone seeking help with a claim.

- Beth L

- Sara Runals

I can not say enough about John and his staff. The compassion and concern that was shown from them is beyond description. John is by far one of the most trustworthy professionals I have ever met and working with him was made very easy because of it. We were always kept up to date on our case and all questions were answered quickly and professionally. He went above and beyond for us and for that we are forever grateful. I highly recommend John and his staff for any problem that needs a great Attorney and wonderful staff. The Steele family.

- Pam Steele

The Rinehardt law firm has to be the most professional and caring people in my time of need. My overall experience from the first phone conversation to the last hand shake has been amazing. The staff are the most caring and helpful people from simple questions to even just friendly phone call to checking up on you to see how your doing. Attorney John Rinehardt has been amazing, one of my favorite things besides his true sincerity is that he treats you like a person regardless of education or financial status. He always managed to follow up on things from previous conversations from a week ago to months prior. I would personally recommend this firm to anyone in need. It has surpassed my expectations. Thank you and your staff from the bottom of my heart. You and your staff are the best

- Ross Wind

John, Stephanie, Melodie and the rest of the staff at The Rinehart Law Offices are really terrific. My husband was hit by a car and we have spent quite a bit of time in and out of hospitals, nursing homes and more hospitals. They are so kind, caring and professional. When ever I hit a “bump in the road” and had questions they always worked hard to help me find answers and solve the problems.
There is no need to go anywhere else but here for help from honest, upstanding attorneys.
A heartfelt thank you to you all for all your help! We will definitely refer your Firm to everyone we know and will be back if we are ever in need again!
God bless you all!

John Rinehardt began assisting me over a year ago in my minor son’s father’s wrongful death settlement. I was not the fiduciary or executor of the estate and thought I had little legal ground to stand on. When my son (4 years old) was offered only 10% of the settlement and I was being bullied by the law firm representing the estate I called and e-mailed John several times for advice. He walked me through every single step of the process. I refused to sign off on anything on my son’s behalf and had the opportunity to put the distribution decision in front of a probate Judge. I would not have had the confidence or know how to do any of this on my own. John was kind and patient and really quite literally treated my son and I like family. I am happy to report that my son was awarded a fair share and I was even granted back child. I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome. If you are looking for an attorney that will truly have your best interest at heart and teach you a few things along the way I HIGHLY recommend Rinehardt Law Firm.

After an auto accident it became apparent that I was going to require assistance. Having never previously required any legal representation – I started seeking referrals from friends and family. I received John’s name through a trusted friend (who just also happened to be an attorney). I contacted John and set up a consultation. John was very informative and generous with his time walking me through the entire process and explaining the different directions that my case could go. Unfortunately (or fortunately) my case ended up going to trial. John and Hilliary were complete professionals, talk about a dynamic duo. John’s experience in the courtroom was clearly evident from the opening argument all the way through to the closing. John was able to clearly lay out our case and it was clear that the jury was able to relate and follow along. John’s experience in the courtroom along with Hilliary’s dedicated work behind the scenes was superb. The care that they showed both myself and my wife – we felt like they were fighting for one of their own family members. I truly appreciate their hard work and dedication and would recommend them to anyone that finds themselves needing a legal expert. Thank you again to you both –

Ohio Accidents & Injuries at a Glance

When an unexpected accident causes you harm, Rinehardt Injury Attorneys will be there to help. We have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of people just like you in Columbus, Mansfield, and across the state of Ohio, and we are ready to stand up and fight for you. We firmly believe that individuals who cause others harm due to negligent or careless acts need to pay for what they’ve done. It is our job to hold them accountable and help make things right.

Whether you were hurt in a car accident or a slip-and-fall, or if a defective product harmed you or any other preventable and avoidable act has impacted your life, it is crucial that you turn to a legal team that has the resources and experience necessary to handle your case. Not all law firms are the same and not every lawyer has the right skills to recover the maximum compensation that you need on your side.

Accidents can happen at any time, anywhere. One of the leading causes of serious or fatal injuries in Ohio and across the United States are car accidents. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP), there were 1,244 fatal crashes in 2021, a number that has risen each year since 2018. Of those fatalities, 170 involved a heavy truck. In that same year, 173 pedestrians were killed in accidents in the state.

It is important to note that Ohio subscribes to a doctrine of comparative negligence, meaning that you could still recover compensation if you were partially at fault for the accident. Recovery is possible only if you were not more than 50 percent at fault.

That’s why it is critical to have an experienced attorney on your side if you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Your attorney will investigate the accident, determine who is liable, and will build the strongest claim on your behalf to make sure that you get the compensation you are owed. If the insurance company fails to offer you a fair settlement, your lawyer may take the case to court to get you what you owed.

You should contact a lawyer to represent you as soon as possible if you’ve been hurt in an accident. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to collect the evidence necessary to bolster your claim. Also, keep in mind that Ohio (like other states) has a statute of limitations for injury claims. According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, injury victims have two years from the date of the injury to file a case, otherwise, the court will refuse to hear it.
The party (or multiple parties) could owe you significant compensation if you were hurt in an accident. Depending on the specific circumstances, you could be eligible to recover money for lost wages, current and future medical expenses, damaged property, pain and suffering, and other damages.
You should rest easier, knowing that Rinehardt Injury Attorneys handles cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means that you won’t have to pay us anything until we recover compensation for you. Our consultations are always FREE, and you won’t owe us a dime unless we win your case.
