Akron Personal Injury Attorneys

Serving Ohio for Over 30 Years

Scanlon & Elliott offers a focused legal practice in the area of plaintiff personal injury with an emphasis on medical malpractice; products liability; serious or catastrophic accidents involving heavy trucks, railway crossings or airplanes; nursing home abuse, negligence and neglect; or prescription drugs and medical devices.

Personal injuries not only cause physical pain, but often emotional and financial hardship through loss of work, medical bills and stress placed upon families and loved ones. We often take our physical and mental well being for granted—until something goes wrong. When an accident happens lives are forever changed. Simple pleasures become chores. Daily routines are disrupted. Economic losses are often devastating. Whether caused by a defective product, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accident, or other negligent, careless or reckless conduct, injuries alter lives forever.
