Besides motor vehicle accident cases, we often handle other product defect cases and workplace injury cases for people who have suffered spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries at construction sites, in factories and in other industrial settings. Lowe Eklund Wakefield also handles legal malpractice cases and complex medical malpractice cases, including those where surgeons make critical mistakes or babies are delivered with brain injuries.
Typically, cases come to us by way of referrals from other attorneys who are aware of our qualifications and track record of success. Our law practice extends nationwide. Lawyers of Lowe Eklund Wakefield travel throughout Ohio and other U.S. regions to gather evidence and bring injury cases to resolution through settlement and verdicts.
We employ the most effective tools of the trade on behalf of our clients who have suffered serious personal injuries, such as a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury.

Although we have helped many injured people and their families in the past, we approach each new client with singular dedication.

When a client has a meritorious case, we work tirelessly to prepare the case so that our clients receive as much full, fair, and just compensation as the law provides — including lost wages and reimbursement for medical and other related expenses. And compensation for that which matters most and cannot be measured by a calculator, including the loss of a loved one or loss of the ability to enjoy life.
We Work to Make the World a Safer Place
The personal injury attorneys at Lowe Eklund Wakefield represent those who have been gravely injured — and who often cannot speak for themselves or navigate the maze of injury claims and necessary legal actions. Through detailed investigation and legal analysis, we get to the bottom of the reason for a serious accident and demand justice for our clients.
We hope — and believe— that our advocacy for the seriously injured helps make the world a better place. Every successful claim against a negligent manufacturer, motorist or employer serves notice to the rest of the world that people’s safety and well-being must come before profit. Most work site injuries and product failures are preventable, and by holding the wrongdoers accountable for the harm they cause, the world slowly, but surely, becomes a safer place. We are here to help make that happen. — James A. Lowe, Founding Partner of Lowe Eklund Wakefield
