There have been a rash of motor vehicle accidents in Ohio involving buses lately. There have been two rollovers recently and also some strange accidents involving bus drivers riding off while dragging a passenger down the road.  Rules and regulations pertaining to bus accidents are more complicated than what apply to other motor vehicles.

We handle truck and car accidents in Ohio.  In doing so, we have to be familiar with the insurance limits available for clients who sustain a personal injury as a result of a collision with a semi tractor-trailer rig.  These motor vehicle accidents often involve big damages because of factors involving speed and disparate weight [...]

Truck and Car Accidents Resulting From Texting

By Howard Mishkind|2019-03-18T22:02:32+00:00August 15th, 2013|Car Accident, Truck Accident|

Truck and car accidents, as well pedestrian and bicycle accidents, are being increasingly caused by texting while driving. Drivers who send text messages while driving divert their eyes from the road, thereby drifting and becoming disoriented.  Simulations show that texting and driving are as dangerous as drunk driving.  I have handled several of these cases and am currently handling [...]

I just read an interesting article called Small Trucks, Big Regulations published by a very smart lawyer in Atlanta, Georgia, Joseph Fried.  Fried pointed out that in some circumstances, pickup trucks and other small frame trucks may be subject to the same regulations that apply to semi tractor trailer rigs.  We are familiar with the federal regulatory [...]

Motor vehicle accidents almost always occur due to driver error.  We have seen car accidents resulting from driver inattention, texting and driving, drinking and driving, inexperienced drivers and simple neglect.  The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently published a stunning article about the hazards of "drowsy driving"  - where drivers hurtling down the road in a 2000 lbs. vehicle fall [...]

Motor vehicle accidents are a source of many common personal injuries.  Occasionally, however, we are confronted with more exotic injuries.  Tinnitus is one such injury.  Tinnitus, or "ringing in the ears," occurs every so often as a result of trauma sustained in a car accident.  We have spent much time investigating this rare injury, and have [...]

The Reason for Many Trucking Accidents

By Howard Mishkind|2020-05-03T21:29:57+00:00February 29th, 2012|Car Accident|

Trucking accidents frequently occur as a result of driver fatigue.  Federal regulations, applicable to trucks operating in Ohio, require trucking firms to restrict drivers' hours and to keep a log of those hours.  You can view these regulations here:  In addition, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles maintains requirements for holders of a commercial drivers' license (CDL):  Unfortunately, driver fatigue [...]

Traumatic Brain Injury

Injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents can cause brain damage. Long after a patient's physical injuries have healed, the impact of the injury to the brain can surface. Closed head injuries or traumatic brain injuries are frequently missed, or under-evaluated by doctors and dismissed as being insignificant due to the nature of such injuries. It [...]
