Reduce Car Accidents in Ohio: Five Important Maintenance Tips for Summer

Share Button

Memorial Day always seems to open the door to Summer in Ohio. As the new season approaches, and more people take to the road, it is important to make sure your car is ready for the change in weather.

In Ohio, the Winter months are very rough on our automobiles. After months of driving in freezing temperatures and through mounds of salt and snow, cars require maintenance. Failing to properly maintain your car isn’t just detrimental to its value, it can also be dangerous to you and others on the road.

As you ease into Summer, the following are five car maintenance tips that will help you prevent car accidents and other road dangers:

1. Check your tires. Temperature affects the air pressure in tires. As temperatures increase, air pressure in tires increase. Incorrect tire pressure levels can be extremely dangerous, and as such, it is important to routinely check the air pressure in your tires to make sure they are properly filled.

  • Over-inflated tires make less contact with the road, which can cause hydroplaning in the Summer months when thunderstorms and rain are common.
  • Under-inflated tires bulge and put pressure on the sides of the tires, which will eventually cause the tires to blow.

2. Replace your windshield wipers. In Ohio, we use our windshield wipers excessively during the winter months. The harsh conditions can wear the wipers down, causing them to be ineffective. Check your windshield wipers so they are in proper working order to handle sudden summer storms.

3. Check the coolant, radiator, hoses, and belts. Today, cars come equipped with advanced cooling systems to prevent engines from becoming too hot to function properly. Even new cooling systems can struggle on a hot, summer day. That is why you have to make sure every part of your cooling system is working properly before taking the road this season.

4. De-Winterize your car. If you properly prepared your car for winter, there are some things you must do before the weather changes: 

  • Change out your winter tires – they are unnecessarily heavy, and will weigh your car down.
  • Check your fluid levels – oil, coolant, transmission, differential, power steering, and brake fluid.
  • Change your oil – oil collects condensation and gets thick.
  • Change/clean/recharge your car battery.
  • Clean the undercarriage of your car.

5. Check your brakes. No matter what season it is, your brakes have to be in perfect working condition. If they aren’t working well, they can cause serious car accidents resulting injury and death. The following signs may indicate you need new brakes:

  • Extremely loose brake pedal
  • Extremely resistant brake pedal
  • Very high or very low brake pedal
  • Brake warning lights on car
  • Grinding or scraping sound

After a long Ohio winter, it is always a treat to get out and enjoy the warm weather, but before you do so, make sure your car is ready for the road.

Protect yourself and others on the road by performing these five summer maintenance tips, and you and your car will be ready to jump on the open road with the windows down. Don’t become a victim because your car wasn’t properly prepared.

What NOT to Do After Your Ohio Car Accident

Share Button

Over the years, I have received thousands of calls from people involved in car accidents in the state of Ohio. Sometimes the victims call me from the scene of the accident, others wait a couple of days, but in some cases, the calls come months or even years after the accident.

What many people don’t realize is every moment following a car accident effects the outcome of a personal injury lawsuit. Every action taken after your collision can help or hurt your potential injury case.

Here are five things you should NOT do after your Ohio car accident:

1. Don’t flee the scene. After you’re involved in a car accident, no matter the severity, you are required by law to report it to the police. So, even if you don’t notice any property damage, and neither of the parties to the accident are injured, you cannot leave the scene until you:

  • Have a conversation with the other party to the accident
  • Check to see if anyone involved was injured
  • Exchange insurance information
  • Contact the police

2. Don’t forget to call 9-1-1. It is important to call 9-1-1 for the following reasons:

  • Car accidents are dangerous. After a car accident, you and the other parties need to be examined by a medical professional. Sometimes injuries don’t manifest the way you would expect, and it is possible to have injuries without even realizing it.
  • Without calling authorities, there is no way to know if the at-fault party is insured. If you were the victim in an accident and you don’t verify the existence of active insurance, you are the one who will suffer. Protect yourself.
  • You have to call 9-1-1 after an accident because you need documentation. An accident report is essential to a personal injury case; without one, it is nearly impossible for me to get you the compensation you deserve.

3. Don’t get emotional. Following your accident, you will feel many emotions – anxiety, fear, pain, anger – you can’t let those emotions affect your behavior. It is important to stay level-headed; be understanding if the accident wasn’t your fault,  and/or apologetic if it was your fault. Getting emotional will only make a tough situation harder, and you may end up saying or doing something you regret.

4. Don’t forget to write everything down/save any and all potential evidence. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, about your accident is important. After an accident, try to remember everything you can and document it. As time goes by, the events of the day will fade from your memory, so getting it down on paper while it’s still fresh in your mind will help. If you collect any other information that may be important, write that down, too – for example, the other party’s insurance information and the police officer’s contact information.

5. Don’t avoid the aftermath. An accident can turn your life and lives of your family members upside down. Generally, you will come away from an accident injured, sometimes without transportation, medical bills, and a lot of questions. It may seem overwhelming at first, but make sure you do whatever you can stay on top of things.

  • Get the medical treatment you need.
  • Register your insurance claim.
  • Repair or replace your transportation.
  • Communicate with your insurance company.
  • Call me, your experienced Ohio personal injury lawyer.

Every car accident is a traumatic experience for the parties involved.

After an accident you may be anxious, scared, injured, and vulnerable. It isn’t always easy to remember what to do, but I guarantee if you remember what NOT to do, you’ll be okay. If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident, you have to call me right away at 1 (877) 944-4373. I will help through the complicated legal process and work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.

More ER Visits for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Share Button

Emergency room visits for traumatic brain injuries (TBI) increased by 30% in the last decade. This statistic, produced by the Journal of the American Medical Association, proves efforts to promote traumatic brain injury awareness are working.

With the general public more aware of the dangers associated with concussions, it seems people are taking these injuries more seriously. As more people seek treatment for head injuries, doctors and researchers are able to learn more about the prevalence of traumatic brain injuries, the correct course of treatment, and ultimately, prevention.

Immediate treatment for a traumatic brain injury is essential to preventing catastrophic injury in the form of long-term damage.

Traumatic brain injury is classified as any disruption of brain function, and usually comes in the form of a fall, crash, bump, or blow to the head. Failing to seek medical treatment after a serious head injury is incredibly dangerous. It is imperative to rest, and cease any and all cognitive work following a concussive event.

Without a specific diagnosis, the injured victim will likely continue performing routine activities, possibly causing serious and irreversible damage. Traumatic brain injuries can take hours or even days to manifest.

Untreated and undiagnosed head injuries leave patients vulnerable to serious disability and even death.

Treatment of a concussion is completely dependent on how a brain injury manifests itself. That is why you need to see a doctor right away if you experience any disruption of brain function. Seeing an increase in the number of emergency room visits as a result of head injury is the first step in solving the serious and deadly problems associated with traumatic brain injury.

If you or a loved one was a victim of traumatic brain injury, you have to call me right away 1 (877) 944-4373. If your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, I can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Will medical malpractice increase as a result of new time restrictions on surgical residents?

Share Button

After graduating from medical school, doctors have to learn how to practice medicine. In doing so, they go through a rigorous residency program where they have the opportunity to get hands-on experience treating patients while working under qualified medical professionals.

For surgical residents specifically, these training hours are especially precious. Experience is the greatest teacher. Thus, the more time residents have to learn, the more prepared they are when they start performing surgeries on their own.

In recent years, the board responsible for accrediting residency programs placed strict caps on the amount of hours residents were allowed to work.

Based on these new schedules, residents started spending considerably less time learning. Limiting hours week by week and year by year didn’t seem to be a very drastic change initially. According to a recent NY Times blog post, over the course of their residency program, surgeons may be missing out on “as much as a year’s worth of experience.

In making their decision, the board cited sleep experts, pressure from politicians and unions, overall health and well-being of the residents, and the possibility that patients may be in danger from sleep-deprived doctors. While these points are valid and should be addressed, the board failed to recognize the affect these new guidelines would have on the training of doctors.

Time restrictions for surgical residents are important for the well-being of doctors and their patients, but residency programs need to make changes to account for lost experience.

Patients’ lives are at risk if their surgeons aren’t as prepared as they should be. If surgical residents are losing out on potentially a year’s worth of experience because of these new time restrictions, the accreditation board should make residency programs a year longer.

Every day, doctors take lives in their hands, and just as much as they need to be well rested before treating a patient, they also need to be well trained. There is no substitute for hands-on experience.  If you or a loved one was a victim of medical malpractice, you have to call me right away 1 (877) 944-4373. I can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Causes of High Preterm Labor Rate in the United States

Share Button

The preterm labor rate in the United States, and Ohio specifically, received a grade of “C” in a recent report by the March of Dimes. One in eight (or 500,000) babies are born premature annually in the United States. Shockingly, this number is down. This poor grade was given despite the fact that preterm labor rates are lower than they have been in 15 years at 11.5%, which means our country still has a long way to go to prevent premature labor and birth.

Preterm labor rates in the United States are the highest among developed countries. While the United States does have high-success rates for babies born prematurely, preterm labor still puts mothers and babies at great risk. So, with our technology and education, and great hospitals, why are so many mothers having their babies early in the US?

High preterm labor rates in the United States may be caused by any of the following factors:

  • A large percentage of women who have preterm labor come from low-income backgrounds and have no insurance. Thus, their prenatal care suffers. Some women never seek treatment for their pregnancy, and those who do, often aren’t treated until late into pregnancy, which leaves them vulnerable to complications, including premature birth.
  • Fertility intervention is very common in the United States, and fertility treatment often results in the pregnancy with multiples. Woman carrying multiples are considered high-risk, and much more likely to have preterm labor.
  • Delayed pregnancies, woman waiting until they’re older in age to have their babies, smoking during pregnancy, inductions, and cesarean births for convenience are other reasons women in the United States are more prone to preterm labor. 

Babies born premature have a greater risk of serious disability and even death.

Preterm birth is any birth that happens before the 37th week of pregnancy. During a baby’s final weeks in the womb, he or she is still developing. The brain, lungs, liver, and other organs, need time to prepare to enter the world. Not getting that time to develop in a safe environment can be devastating for an infant. Past statistics show premature birth resulted in 35% of all infant deaths, which places it above all other causes of death.

Specific medical issues a premature baby may suffer from include:

If your baby was born premature and has suffered from any preterm-related health problems, you have to call me right away 1 (877) 944-4373.

Ohio Medical Malpractice: How I Evaluate Your Case

Share Button

One of the most important and most difficult steps in every medical malpractice lawsuit is the initial evaluation of the case. The success of every medical malpractice case depends entirely on proper evaluation.

The first thing you learn when you evaluate a case is whether the case has merit. While some cases seem cut and dry, lawsuits aren’t always about what actually happened, but instead are about what you can prove happened. Furthermore, evaluating a case helps the attorney and client determine whether the case is worth pursuing. Lawsuits are time-consuming and costly, and it is critical to the decision-making process to find out if the benefits outweigh the costs.

As your medical malpractice lawyer, I will take the following steps to evaluate your case:

1. Get information.

  • Have a conversation with my client to get all of the details about what happened.
  • Create a timeline of events based on the information I am able to gather.
  • Ask my client for his or her opinion about what happened.
  • Get to know my client on a more personal level. (This is important for two reasons: first, so we feel comfortable around each other, and second, so I can determine how my client will be perceived by a jury if the case was to go to trial.)

2. Get all records.

  • Obtain client’s medical records, including but not limited to past medical history, records of the medical incident in question, medical test resorts, all medical files associated with the client.
  • Obtain lost wage reports, as well as any other documentation that may be relevant to the case.

3. Talk to experts.

  • Find a medical expert who will testify that a medical mistake was made.
  • Based on their expert opinion, determine whether the care received by your client deviated from the accepted standard of care.
  • Based on their expert opinion, determine whether a significant mistake was made.
  • Based on their expert opinion, determine whether the mistake actually caused harm to your client.
  • Lastly, get their expert opinion as to whether the outcome would have been the same if the mistake wasn’t made.

4. Assess case value.

  • Develop a preliminary idea of the value of the case. (This is important because medical malpractice cases are expensive and time-consuming, so the attorney needs to know if the case is worth pursuing.)
  • Determine whether the value of the case equals the amount of work a lawyer will put in, and whether the client will be left with a reasonable recovery.

5. Discuss evaluation with client.

  • After evaluating the case, discuss the findings with my client.
  • The evaluation process can take months, so it is important to explain to my client how a final decision and evaluation was reached.

Evaluating your claim can be a lengthy process, but it is necessary for you and your lawyer to make educated decisions about your case.

Your case can be won or lost during the evaluation phase. That is why it is important to find a medical malpractice lawyer who has the experience and resources necessary to properly evaluate your case, protect your rights, and help you determine whether you want to pursue your claim.

If you or a loved one was harmed as a result of medical malpractice, you have to call me right away at 1 (877) 944-4373. I can help you evaluate your case and get you the compensation you deserve. As your Ohio medical malpractice lawyer, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

5 Myths about Personal Injury Lawsuits

Share Button

If you’ve been involved in a personal injury lawsuit, you know the process is a lot different than what is portrayed in the media. As a personal injury lawyer, I am almost always advocating for my clients against big insurance companies.

Because a large majority of personal injury cases are defended by insurance companies, it is in their best interest to present the public with a negative image of injury law. Unfortunately, unless someone is able to experience the legal system first hand, they often continue believing the false messages presented by insurance companies.

The following are 5 myths about personal injury lawsuits insurance companies want you to believe:

1. The number of lawsuits continue to increase. The number of personal injury cases are declining and have been declining for years. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, “The total number of civil trials declined by over 50% in the last two decades.”

2. The majority of lawsuits have no merit. If a claim has no merit, it never becomes a lawsuit. The legal process has an incredible system of checks and balances. Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency, so they don’t pursue cases without a strong likelihood the case will be successful. Furthermore, for a case to last past summary judgment, a judge has to determine the case has merit, otherwise it is dismissed immediately.

3. Lawsuits cost tax payers money. The cost of litigation is not passed on to tax-payers. There is no such thing as a ‘tort cost.’ Large corporations fund various groups who work to create theories, such as this one. The more negative light that can be shined on medical malpractice, the more fearful the average American becomes, and the less likely he or she will be to defend their rights.

4. You don’t need a lawyer. Insurance companies don’t want you to have a lawyer because they want you to be vulnerable to their tricks. Insurance companies will try to get you to sign away your rights every chance they get, and if you don’t have a lawyer who has experience fighting insurance companies you won’t get the compensation you deserve.

5. Healthcare costs are rising because of medical malpractice lawsuits. According to the American Medical Association, medical malpractice  is responsible for less than two percent of all healthcare spending. Healthcare costs are rising as the cost of living goes up, doctors continue to make more money, and as hospitals continue to increase their costs. The rise in healthcare costs cannot be attributed to medical malpractice lawsuits.

Personal Injury Lawsuits: Tips for Bringing an Accident Claim in Ohio

Share Button

Everything you do after your car accident can affect your potential personal injury lawsuit. Most people don’t realize how crucial the days, weeks, and months following an accident actually are to a case.

The record will reflect any and all facts from the moments, sometime even hours, leading up to the collision until the resolution of the case. However, the record can only reflect what can be proven in court. This means it’s not always about what happened, it’s about what you can prove happened.

After a car accident, you must take the following steps to preserve information important for your personal injury lawsuit:

1. Go to the emergency room. It is important to seek medical treatment immediately following a car accident. Injuries need to be documented right away to prevent any arguments from insurance companies about causation later on. Having a complete record and diagnosis will make your case more successful. Furthermore, it is important for your own well-being to be examined after your accident, so that you may receive proper treatment going forward.

2. Get follow-up treatment. One thing most people don’t realize is that the emergency room will not provide you with a conclusive diagnosis or treatment plan. Generally, emergency room staff will treat you until you are stable and then send you home with instructions to seek follow-up care. Follow those instructions. It is essential for your case that you follow all medical instructions and receive adequate treatment for your injuries.

3. Call an experienced lawyer. Once you have taken care of yourself physically, the next step is to talk to a lawyer. There are many things you need to do to preserve your rights early on in your case, so communicating with a lawyer, who understands the process early on, will significantly help your chance of recovery.

4. Don’t talk to insurance companies. Right after your accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will contact you. They will try to get you to sign off on a settlement. Don’t talk to the insurance company, and don’t sign anything. Once you have agreed on a settlement and essentially signed away your rights, there isn’t much I can do to help, so don’t make that mistake. Call me right away at 1 (877) 944-4373.

5. Always be consistent. Even if you are a plaintiff in a lawsuit, it still feels like you are the one on trial. Everything you say and do matters. It is important to always be consistent when your discussing anything related to your case. Whether you are talking about your medical history, your resulting injuries, or facts leading up to the accident, be clear and consistent in what you say and what you communicate to your lawyer.

The only way to truly protect your rights is to talk to a personal injury lawyer right away.

It is important to have a lawyer who has the experience and resources necessary to take on the insurance companies. If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident, you have to call me right away 1 (877) 944-4373. I can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice vs. Criminal Malpractice: Is Criminal Punishment Necessary?

Share Button

When someone is injured or even killed as result of a medical mistake, a medical malpractice lawsuit is generally the only recourse. A constant debate wrestles with whether or not healthcare professionals should be prosecuted criminally for their medical mistakes. The thought is to send a stronger message to physicians about careless care.

Medical patients are some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society, and at times, certain occurrences of medical malpractice are so heinous they could be considered breaches of fundamental standards of care. Is civil liability enough to prevent this behavior?

Some acts of medical malpractice are so egregious, criminal punishment may be an appropriate response.

Lawyers in the Journal of BMJ Quality & Safety out of London argue, “The criminal law’s role in this context is not to play a frontline part in deterring and coercing people into complying with proper standards of behavior; rather, it’s central function applies only to the worst kinds of unacceptable treatment.”

Doctors take an oath to never do harm to anyone. It is the responsibility of doctors to carry out this oath to the best of their ability. Accidents happen, and not all medical mistakes are preventable, but sometimes mistakes can be prevented. Sometimes malpractice is more than just a mistake, sometimes it is criminal.

The following are potential factors for criminal malpractice:

  • Willful and reckless endangerment
  • Taking unjustifiable risks
  • Repeated negligent behavior
  • Disregard of past negative outcomes
  • Failure to respond in a timely manner
  • Depraved indifference to human life
  • Gross negligence
  • Deception
  • Intoxication
  • Improper motive

If you or a loved one was injured or killed as a result of criminal malpractice, you have to call me right away at 1 (877) 944-4373. I can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Healthcare Reform Causing Dangerous Increase in Doctors’ Workload and Medical Errors

Share Button

It has been reported over 30 million more Americans have health insurance as a result of new healthcare laws. Consequently, over 30 million more Americans are seeking treatment from the same pool of available doctors prior to this rapid increase.

This means doctors are forced to take on many more patients, dramatically increasing their workload. According to a recent survey, over 40 percent of doctors think the number of patients they treat in a month exceeds safe levels.

Doctors’ excessive workload undermines the safety of patients and results in unnecessary medical errors.

Annually, 98,000 patients die in the hospital as a result of preventable medical mistakes. The author of a survey by JAMA Internal Medicine attributes many of these mistakes to doctors’ workload.

“Excessively increasing the workload may lead to suboptimal care and less direct patient care time…excess workload prevents doctors from fully discussing treatment options, causes delay in patient admissions and/or discharges, and worsens patient satisfaction… workload contributed to patient transfers, morbidity, and even mortality.”

Doctors with an excessive workload don’t have time to get to know their patients.

Personalized health care is crucial to doctor and patient success. When doctors aren’t able to adequately communicate with their patients, it becomes difficult for them to properly diagnose and treat their patients.

While healthcare reform has taken great steps in the right direction, we have to make sure, as a society, that we are receiving the right type of healthcare. It is important to remember, we want quality over quantity.

If you or a loved one was harmed as a result of a medical mistake, you have to call me right away at 1 (877) 944-4373. I can help you get the compensation you deserve.
