Opioid Use Among Truckers

By | April 26th, 2017|Truck Accident|

If you have ever experienced the horror of a truck accident, you know that the modern passenger car is no match for a goliath semi-tractor trailer that can stand 14 feet tall, carry a load the size of a house and outweigh your vehicle by as much as a factor of 100 to 1.   Though [...]

What is HIE?

By | April 13th, 2017|Birth Injury|

As a birth injury lawyer, I am often asked what is HIE or hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy?  HIE occurs when a newborn’s brain is deprived of oxygen for a sufficient period of time during the delivery process to cause death of brain tissue.  Unlike other body tissues, brain cells do not regenerate.  Once they are damaged, they [...]

Failure to Prevent Stroke in A Fib Patients

By | March 29th, 2017|Stroke|

I have previously written about misdiagnosis of stroke on this blog.  When stroke is not timely diagnosed, the patient misses out on time-sensitive treatments that can preserve brain tissue, such as tPA (a “clot buster” medication) or thromboembolectomy (where a blood clot is removed through a surgical procedure).  However, in many circumstances, blood clots that [...]

Trucking Company Liability for a Truck Accident

By | March 16th, 2017|Truck Accident|

Semi-truck accident investigations are more detailed and involved than routine car accident cases.  When a semi-truck causes a crash, there are numerous documents from the trucking company that must be reviewed to determine the root cause of the accident.  A thorough investigation can reveal facts that enhance the value of the claim and may support [...]

Serious Injury on the Job

By | December 5th, 2016|Serious Injury|

When a worker sustains a serious injury on the job in Ohio, the obvious place to turn for compensation is the State of Ohio’s Bureau of Workers Compensation the “BWC”).  But did you know that other sources of compensation may be available?  Generally, when a worker is injured as a result of his own carelessness [...]

Choosing a Lawyer for a Serious Injury Case

By | October 20th, 2016|Serious Injury|

Choosing a lawyer for a serious injury case can be an overwhelming undertaking.  Disabling injuries can put your entire future at stake.  So, the choice of a lawyer can make the difference between recovering adequate compensation for your injury, or being left to pick up the pieces on your own without adequate financial resources.  A [...]

Truck Accident Involving Loose Cargo

By | October 12th, 2016|Truck Accident|

Truck accidents have received greater attention by Ohio personal injury lawyers because they are increasing in numbers and often lead to devastating injuries.  In an effort to better serve our clients who sustain catastrophic injury or wrongful death from a truck accident, I recently joined the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLA), [...]

Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

By | October 11th, 2016|Brain Injury|

Severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) is less common than milder forms of the injury, so it gets less attention in the medical literature and in the courtroom.  Because the physical signs of severe TBI are more concrete and more objective, it is more difficult for insurance companies and defense lawyers to attribute the symptoms of [...]

For Attorneys – Informed Consent Claims (Part 2)

By | September 22nd, 2016|For Attorneys|

In Part 1 of this blog, I updated Ohio medical malpractice attorneys on the state of informed consent claims.  In Part 2, I want to discuss how to use concepts related to informed consent to overcome juror bias in medical negligence trials.  It is well-established that injured patients do not get a fair shake at [...]
