Medication and Birth Defect and Injury Consequences

Share Button

Did your medication cause your baby’s birth defect?

Medication and improper medication management can often be the cause for a tragic birth injury or birth defects. As we learn more and more about the drugs commonly prescribed, the more warnings and restrictions occur.  While a drug may be allowed now, it can be deemed dangerous in the future as research progresses.  Further, mistakes in medication type or dosage pose a very real threat to any pregnancy.

  • Medication with Dangerous Side Effects
  • Wrong Drugs
  • Wrong Doses
  • Wrong Labor Drugs

Medication prescribed during your pregnancy or during labor must be deemed necessary and safe for both you and your unborn baby.

Recognized Dangers

One of the more commonly discussed family of medications is known as SSRIs, which are used to treat anxiety and depression.  Once acceptable, SSRIs are now known to cause a host of issues for an unborn baby, including spina bifida, pulmonary hypertension, developmental issues and more.  Common drugs like Prozac, Lexapro and Zoloft are no longer safe for mothers and their unborn children. Just a short time ago, this simply wasn’t the case and countless families suffered tragic birth defects and even death.

Other common types of medications that can cause issues for your baby include antibiotics, benzodiazepines used for seizures or anxiety, acne medications, cancer medications, some OTC pain medications and more. The list is truly endless!

Other Medication Errors During Pregnancies

In addition to failing to monitor your medication during your pregnancy, you are also at risk for other medication errors.

  • Dosage issues
  • Similar name confusions
  • Handwriting problems
  • Epidural issues
  • Using drugs for other then what they are prescribed

If you took medication during your pregnancy, and your baby suffered a birth injury or birth defect, you must contact my offices immediately.

A decade ago, many of the medications we now know to be dangerous, were commonly and freely prescribed.

Under Ride Truck Accidents – Under Ride Guards are the Answer

Share Button

Under Ride Truck Accidents on the Rise 

Two mothers that suffered unimaginable, tragic losses are leading the crusade for better under ride guards on semi trucks.

The average semi truck trailer is about 3’ off the ground.  The average personal vehicle can easily “fit” beneath the semi trailer during an accident.  Unfortunately, under ride accidents have resulted in countless tragic and preventable deaths.  A vehicle that hits the side or rear of a semi trailer is almost guaranteed to have catastrophic results.

The solution is actually quite simple: Under ride guards.  On the back and sides of large trucks, under ride guards are metal or fiberglass barriers that hang to prevent smaller cars, trucks and SUVs from going under the trailer in an accident.  Unfortunately, the current federal mandate is decades old and trucking companies do not have to have ride guards in place.  Safety advocates are pushing for a big change. Under ride guards should not be confused with skirt type side panels that are used to improve gas mileage and driving performance. True, effective under ride guards are tested to withstand high speed impact and prevent passenger vehicles from becoming lodged under the trailer.

The Facts About Accidents and Under Ride Guards

Semi trailers are not required to have side under ride guards, and existing under ride guard quality is not mandated – Meaning many existing guards can crumble on impact. Rear under ride guards are federally required, further supporting the notion that side guards are a no-brainer.

A 2015 IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) study found

  • 1,500 total individuals were involved in accidents with semi trailers
  • Of those, over 300 suffered fatal injuries
  • 292 additional accidents resulted in fatalities after drivers rear ended semi trailers
  • It’s estimated about 50% of all fatal accidents involving semi trailers are under ride related in nature

Under Ride Truck Accidents

  • Semi drivers lose control and vehicles become trapped
  • Car drivers can get pushed or crushed under during collisions
  • Distracted driving
  • Weather related accidents, sliding and more

Passengers and drivers are both at risk. Whether your vehicle becomes trapped after a head on collision impact, or from a side ways or rear impact – The crush injuries are virtually unavoidable.

Under ride guards that are built and installed properly almost guarantee a collision with the side of a semi truck trailer will allow the passenger vehicles safety mechanisms to work – Stopping the vehicle from going underneath the trailer and deploying air bags and seat belts to aid in crash injury prevention.  While the impact can be dangerous, the crush and nature of entrapment under a trailer is far worse.

Akron Summa Health Care Medical Malpractice

Summa Health Care – The Impact of 2017 Changes

Resident programs revoked after hospital found to be deplorable, 2017 staffing changes found to wreak havoc.

If you were treated at Akron Summa Hospital ER in 2017, you need to read this.

Imagine you show up to the ER for emergency care, only to find out that day the staff had been replaced, chaos ensued and the current and future quality of care was questionable, at best!

This isn’t the plot for a drama on Netflix – that is exactly what happened in our very own back yard at Akron’s Summa Hospital. Employees reportedly failing to reach contract negotiations in 2016 were abruptly led out of the door on January 1, 2017.

Unfortunately for Akron’s Summa hospital, 2017 has not been a prosperous year.  Starting on New Years Day 2017, all hospital academic physicians contracted by SEA (Summa Emergency Associates) for decades, were also led out of the door.  A new contracted company was put in place to provide staffing and the results were catastrophic.  SEA employees were offered and declined generous packages by USACS, the new organization scrambling to fill roles.  The hospital also lost its national accreditation for their medical residency program.

Out with the Old in with the New

USACS unfortunately miscalculated their opportunity, falling short on staff and on experience.  Many physicians they brought in were not residing in Northeast Ohio, and had very little academic experience.

USACS supplies staff for hospitals across the US, providing physician placement and other health care industry roles.  Coincidentally, USACS CEO is also the husband of Summa’s Chief Medical Officer – A relationship that was said not to have influenced the decision.

The resulting actions and loss of national residency accreditation occurred after compounding complaints by patients and other community partners – Claiming patients were being treated and released by residents – Ignoring requests for supervisor consults. Unfortunately for current and future students, this means their residency needs a new home – And Akron Summa is no longer an option.

How Medical Malpractice Happens in Transition

Poor planning and terrible decision making can both contribute to large instances of medical malpractice. Lack of medical experience in a training hospital, lack of organization and overall chaos can certainly allow patients’ care to fall through the cracks.

If you visited Akron Summa Hospital in 2017, and suffered an injury due to medical malpractice or neglect, you must call my offices today.

Ohio Move Over Law – Accident Avoidance

Share Button

Ohio Move Over Law Penalties May Change

The Ohio Move Over Law is simple: if you approach or are approached by an emergency vehicle on a state highway with emergency lights on, you must move over and/or slow down. In instances where it is not safe to move over, such as heavy traffic or poor weather, you must slow down to safely allow the emergency vehicle to pass, or complete your pass to move over.

Recent news headlines detail the tragedy of two officers struck and killed in separate accidents while on duty in construction work areas on the same stretch of Northeast Ohio highway. Many argue the Move Over Law should extend to ALL emergency vehicles, construction crews and anyone in a disabled vehicle on highway road sides.

Risks for crashing into emergency vehicles or someone on the side of the road run the gamut

  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Visual limitations
  • Failure to control
  • Unsafe speeds
  • Unsafe passing
  • Weather conditions

New penalties proposed for violators include up to 6 months in jail, and a $1,000 fine – But is that enough? We have to start valuing human life on the roads. The only way to change this is to hold guilty individuals accountable, and change the way we think about and handle careless behavior.

Move Over to Save Lives

Statistics in the US are horrific.  Each year, hundreds of people are killed or seriously injured after being struck on the side of the road.

  • 1 tow truck driver is killed nationally every six days
  • 1 police office is killed per month
  • 23 highway workers are killed on average each month

These numbers don’t even take into account pedestrians, or accidents with moving emergency vehicles, as a result of driver negligence!

The rising accident counts, and increased rear end vehicle accidents are no mystery.  There are more people driving than ever before, and we are more distracted then we could have ever imagined. Checking a text message or fidgeting with your Pandora channel can cost someone a life!

If you or a loved on was injured as a result of a negligent driver, call me immediately. As your Ohio accident attorney, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Workers’ Compensation Fines – Profit Versus Safety

Share Button

When Big Fines Aren’t a Deterrent

Recent workers’ compensation fines are making the headlines, but is it really enough?  Unfortunately, every single day in Ohio and across the US, individuals are asked to perform work related duties that have very real dangers.  For many, common sense safety is enough – But unfortunately, accidents do happen! This is exactly why companies are required to have safety measures in place, to prevent tragedies in the first place. Lack of training and proper safety procedures can yield the ultimate price tag. Unfortunately big corporations pay the fines, and go about their day as if nothing happened.  This is unacceptable!

A recent story about a gentleman in Oregon is the perfect example.  An Ohio auto manufacturing company operating an Oregon facility was fined $570,000 as a result of safety violations that led to an employee suffering severe injuries on the job. Due to an unsafe machine, the 46 year old suffered the loss of his hand and partial loss of his arm, changing his life forever.  The simple fix?  Proper guards on the machine for which he was assigned to work.  This company clearly chose profit over safety!

Protecting Your Rights in a Work Related Injury

Every time a person goes to work there is a level of expectation regarding safety.  Sadly this wasn’t the case for the individual mentioned above; his life was forever changed.  The company in Ohio was fined $570,000 and the gentleman likely pursued a workers’ compensation claim for benefits and reparations. Nevertheless, nothing will replace his missing limbs!

Unfortunately, the claims process and injury recovery can be incredibly overwhelming.  If you allow your place of employment to determine the path to your claim and recovered benefits, your path may come up short!  Hiring an expert to navigate the complicated claims and benefits process is essential.

Your workers’ compensation claim for an injury such as loss of limb could include medical care, reconstructive surgeries, therapy, prosthetic, medication, lost wages and more.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury at work, you must call my office now. The Ohio BWC can be very complicated and confusing. As your Ohio workers’ comp attorney, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Motorcycle Accidents – National Motorcycle Awareness Month

Share Button

May is National Motorcycle Awareness Month

Motorcyclists in Ohio cannot wait to get back on the roads when the weather starts to warm up. As I’m sure you’ve noticed with the warm weather approaching, the motorcycles’ roar is more and more prevalent around town.  Unfortunately, despite being a small fraction of ‘vehicles’ on the roadway, motorcycle accidents account for over 14% of traffic fatalities. The National Safety Council reports that in 2015 alone, 4,976 motorcycle riders died as a result of crash – and another 88,000 were injured!

This month is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and it is important to understand the risks that motorcyclists take when sharing the highways.  

During the warm months of spring, summer and fall, motorcycles will be a popular form of transportation on the roadways.  Gas is cheaper, transportation is fun and traffic is a breeze – all while enjoying the open air and great weather. This also means there will be an increase in motorcycle accidents and deaths.

Motorcycle riding comes with risks because of lack of surrounding metal and airbags for protection.  Motorcycles are also not seen as well as cars and trucks.  Use of helmets and protective clothing offer some safety for riders but even with the proper gear the risks of serious injury or death are much higher than riding in a passenger vehicle.

The most common factors in motorcycle accidents are:

  • Drugs and alcohol (Roughly 30% of accidents were drug or alcohol related)
  • Weather
  • Speeding (About 30% of accidents contributed to speed)
  • Inexperience
  • Age  (Estimated to be a factor in 35% of accidents)
  • Road Hazards
  • Colliding with other vehicles

Because of the lack of protection, motorcyclists are often severely injured.  They are usually thrown from the bike and suffer impact injuries from the ground or another vehicle, and many times these injuries are catastrophic and can lead to death.

The most common motorcycle accident injuries are:

  • Neck, back and spinal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts, contusions and abrasions
  • Road rash
  • Loss of limbs

When you are injured in a motorcycle accident because of someone else’s negligence it is important to speak to a personal injury lawyer.  Often injuries from a motorcycle accident will result in extensive medical care that can continue for a lifetime.

Accidents with Uhauls, Rental Trucks or Camper Vans

Share Button

Bigger Vehicles, Bigger Dangers

Many of us have that instinctual drive to keep away from, or quickly pass, semis on the road. That feeling where the hair stands up on your arms and visions of news coverage or “Final Destination-esque” scenes play out in our head.

What about other large vehicles, driven by inexperienced drivers?  We seem to have a reverse-logic, false sense of security. Tractor trailers and semis are professionally driven, requiring a CDL license endorsement, strict time laws and other guidelines. While truck accidents do happen, campers, U-hauls and other large transportation modes on the highways can pose significant risk, and are not governed by any of the aforementioned. Would you be surprised if I told you Ohio drivers need a special license to safely operate a motorcycle, but not to drive a large RV or rental truck?

Driving a large vehicle is complicated.

  • Increased risk
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Emergency response ineptitude
  • Lack of insurance
  • Lack of operational experience

Dangers of Rental Vehicles – Accidents in Uhauls and More

Any adult with a valid license can rent a 16 or 26 foot (or similar size) box truck from local dealers across the area.  This means any individual can grab keys and hop behind the wheel – With little to no instruction involved.  In addition to the sheer size of the vehicle, many of us are not even sure how to properly start or operate it! A typical truck rented for moving is about 4 times the size and weight of a normal everyday car. EMPTY!

Factor in the stress of moving, weather related threats, other drivers and other factors, it can be a recipe for disaster. From the simple time it takes to stop, to the distance needed to change lanes, rental vehicles are a dangerous road hazard.

A 2014 study prepared for Congress stated that over a five year period from 2005-2010, 134 rental trucks crashes were reported. While this seems small by count, these crashes caused over 163 individual serious injury, and resulted in over 170 deaths. Driver errors and varying inspection standards and loop holes are partially to blame. Uhauls and other rental trucks have a long history of shady, negligent maintenance practices that can extend the danger.

 

Campers and Motor Homes

RVS, motor homes and campers add an entirely different element into the mix! While it may be a dream come true for some, campers and RVs can be a true nightmare.  Distracted and inexperienced driving coupled with slower reaction times and maintenance issues, weather or traffic conditions, can make your RV hell on wheels.

Aside from additional registration fees, most campers and RVs do not require any additional training or licensing to operate! And aside from general insurance, most are not covered by more than a normal policy.

Even in perfect weather conditions, driving large or oversize vehicles can pose serious dangers.

  • Assured distance
  • Clear and wide turning
  • Parking
  • Difficulty maneuvering
  • Maintenance issues
  • Distracted driving
  • Tired driving
  • Speeding and stop distance
  • Overloading / imbalance
  • Improper towing

A FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) report released sited that in 2012 alone, over 75000 people were injured nationwide in RV or motor home accidents.

Large vehicles driven by inexperienced drivers are a serious hazard on our roads. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in an accident with a Uhaul, rental truck, RV or motor home – You must contact my offices immediately.

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and Birth Injury Risks

IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and Birth Injury Risks

If you or someone you love conceived through IVF or In Vitro Fertilization, it is more likely than not that your road to pregnancy and parenthood has been less than easy. Having children is no doubt one of life’s biggest blessings, and assisted reproductive technologies are an incredible answer, but typically accompanied with a heavy heart and a heavy price.

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a process to assist in reproduction and ultimately pregnancy, whereby an egg(s) is fertilized outside of the body and then inseminated. The process begins with stimulating egg production, retrieving the eggs, fertilizing and inseminating. Hormone therapy and additional medical support is often required, before and during the pregnancy. In many cases, the mother is previously diagnosed with a complication, leading to the need for IVF.

IVF is used in a variety of situations;

  • Male or female infertility
  • Unexplained infertility
  • Damaged or inviable fallopian tubes
  • Ovulation issues
  • Genetic disorders

Costs are estimated to start from $10-$20,000 just for a single cycle. Coupling the cost and the emotional toll, In Vitro is not a decision to be arrived at lightly!

IVF In Vitro Fertilization and Birth Risks

IVF pregnancies are often and commonly labeled as ‘high risk’ due to a variety of factors. While IVF itself may or may not constitute higher risk pregnancies, recipients of IVF are more likely to have complicated medical histories that contribute to the diagnosis. Further complicating that, 40% of IVF or assisted pregnancies can results in twins or multiples, which is also considered higher risk.

If your OB GYN fails to appropriately plan your pregnancy, an IVF or assisted pregnancy and subsequent birth can have devastating outcomes.

Pregnancies from IVF are at a higher risk of several concerns;

  • Low birth weight
  • Premature labor
  • Multiple births
  • High BP
  • Preeclampsia
  • Bleeding complications
  • Increased cancer risks
  • Stress and painful symptoms
  • Procedure complications
  • Ectopic pregnancies
  • Birth defects
  • Miscarriage & more.

Unfortunately, these are in addition to the potentially painful, expensive and emotionally taxing elements.

IVF has brought hope and the possibility of family to so many – But not without an expensive and emotional price tag.  The emotional toll, coupled with both known and unknown risks can be overwhelming.

If you or a loved one suffered a loss or birth injury following an IVF pregnancy, contact my offices immediately.  As your Ohio birth injury attorney, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Uber Accidents Claims

A New Type Of Accident Claim in an Uber World

Ride sharing is on the rise, and unfortunately so are related accidents.  While Uber, Lyft and other ride sharing, taxi or carpool services fill a need in today’s society – we also need to ensure our laws change to keep up with the times!

There are several ways individuals can be involved in Uber accidents;

  1. You were in an Uber or car from a ride share app, and an accident occurred
  2. You were in another vehicle, and you were hit by an Uber driver
  3. You were a pedestrian struck by an Uber driver

In the case of Uber and other similar ride apps, we have unlimited options at our fingertips.  Unfortunately, for drivers and passengers, this can be a dangerous game.  Drivers are actually independent contractors who use their personal vehicles for financial gain.. This can be contrary to their insurance policies in many cases.  Further, whether or not an active Uber ride is occurring can also impact the situation.

To combat this, Uber has a $1 million dollar umbrella-type liability policy, that extends beyond the drivers’ coverage. There is also coverage in place for when the driver is not actively transporting a passenger, as a result of tragic cases in California and New York.

Now your accident and injury has become increasingly more complicated.  What do you do next?

If you were involved in an Uber accident, start with these 4 steps.

  1. Get immediate medical attention
  2. Document everything as best as possible, or ask a loved one for help
  3. Call a lawyer. If you were injured in the accident in any way, it is best to consult a lawyer immediately
  4. Do not accept any offers or make any declarations.  Follow the user recommended instructions as provided by Uber.

“Who’s Driving You” a self proclaimed public awareness campaign, highlights the dangers and extreme incidents that have resulted from Uber and Lyft drivers around the globe. Although not much different than the individual we trusted to drive our limos, buses and taxi cabs – The Uber world certainly brings another element to the table.

Uber and similar ride sharing apps have absolutely changed the landscape.  It is not often that technology of this magnitude is released and scales so quickly!  This can further complicate the situation.  Uber has no claim or report number and doesn’t even call themselves a taxi or transportation service.

If you or someone you love was involved in an Uber car accident, call my offices immediately.  As your Ohio car accident attorney, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Multiple Births and Birth Injuries

Share Button

Birth Injuries and Multiple Gestational Pregnancy

Multiples, or more than one baby,  most commonly refers to twins or triplets. Multiple births can absolutely lead to risks for mom and babies.

Your medical team must be 100% experienced and skilled in handling multiples before, during and immediately following the birthing process. Careful planning and preparation goes into every pregnancy, but with any high risk case the experience of your medical team is critical.

Pregnancies with multiples occurs frequently thanks to science and medical advancement in, in-vitro fertilization. Twins occur in 1 in every 80 pregnancies, while triplets occur in 1 in every 7,000 pregnancies.  With this comes a classification of a high risk pregnancy, and an increased risk of a variety of known complications.

Common Multiple Gestational Risks

  • Pre term labor – Anywhere from 4-6 weeks early delivery is considered normal … About 90% of triplets are preterm births, and about 60% of twins.
  • Placental complications – Most commonly placenta abruption
  • Umbilical prolapse – Compression of the umbilical cord before or during delivery
  • Hemorrhage – The possibility of prolonged and increased bleeding during and after childbirth
  • Growth Restrictions – Your babies growth is restricted because your placenta simply cannot accommodate
  • Gestational Diabetes – A potentially dangerous diagnosis for mom during the pregnancy
  • Preeclampsia – High blood pressure and toxemia in pregnancies
  • TTTS – Twin to Twin Transfusion, a medical condition whereby which multiples may share blood
  • Cerebral Palsy – Severe, lasting mental and physical limitations
  • Low birth weight – Babies born less than 5 pounds, 8 oz.

Planning for a health pregnancy and delivery

A birth injury or trauma following delivery is one of the most tragic experiences any family can go through.  Unfortunately, failing to properly plan for a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery is commonly a factor.  In multiple births, delivery can be even more complicated.  The position, order of the babies and other critical factors are used to determine a birthing and delivery plan.  While twins may be able to be safely delivered via natural child birth, triplets and beyond are typically delivered via C-section.

All of these and other potential scenarios are very dangerous, for both mom and babies. If you or a loved one experienced injury, loss or issues with a multiple gestation pregnancy, you must call my offices today.
