Legal Question in Personal Injury in Ohio

I was involved in a car accident where I went through a green light and hit a car that had ran a red light. The other party was not wearing a seatbelt and had his window down which resulted in him being ejected from the car. He was pronounced dead a few hours later. It has been over a month now of me going to a chiropractor for the whiplash from the accident and I still am dealing with the total loss department from my bank and getting a rental car through my insurance. It has been discovered that the other party involved did not have insurance (it had expired 3 days prior to the accident) and he was on the clock delivering pizza for Donatos at the time. I just want to know if I should be seeking after Donatos for rightful payment from the accident since they let an uninsured driver work for them?

You should certainly look into coverage through Donatos under such circumstances. At this point, running the rental and total loss through your own carrier might make good sense. Additionally, you will want to consider the extent of your personal injuries. The statute of limitations will be two years there but proper documentation and medical support for you claim could prove key. A legal consultation is definitely warranted it would seem.
