Medical Malpractice and Ohio’s Apology Statute

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:11+00:00January 17th, 2018|Medical Malpractice|

Ohio medical malpractice lawyers are facing a new obstacle to bringing justice to victims of medical error.  Ohio’s recently enacted Apology Statute provides that “any and all statements, affirmations, gestures, or conduct expressing apology, sympathy, commiseration, condolence, compassion, or a general sense of benevolence that are made by a health care provider” to a patient, [...]

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:11+00:00November 9th, 2017|General Negligence|

Slip and fall cases fall under the general negligence category of premises liability.  So, a discussion of personal injury claims involving slips, trips and falls begins with a general discussion of premises liability.   Ohio law defines the duty of care owed by a property owner to a person entering their property by the status of [...]

Misdiagnosis and Medical Malpractice

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:11+00:00June 30th, 2017|Misdiagnosis|

Misdiagnosis is a common type of medical malpractice, but not all misdiagnoses are the result of negligence.  To constitute malpractice, the misdiagnosis must result from underassessment, under-testing or misinterpretation of test results that falls below acceptable standards of medical care.  I was thinking about misdiagnosis cases as I read the obituary of Lawrence Weed, M.D., [...]

Wrong Dose of Anticoagulation and Stroke

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00June 27th, 2017|Stroke|

Improper dosing of anticoagulation can result in stroke, pulmonary embolism, bleeding, or death. Despite the great risk, a recent study published by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) shows that underdosing and overdosing of newer blood thinner medications is rampant. The study focused on the use of novel direct acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs), such [...]

Opioid Use Among Truckers

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00April 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 David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00April 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 David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00March 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 [...]

By David Kulwicki|2019-03-18T22:01:42+00:00March 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 [...]

By David Kulwicki|2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00December 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 [...]
