Road Rage Accidents

Road Rage and Serious Accidents and Attacks

As if car accidents and daily dangers were not enough to keep us all on the edge of our seat, we now have this new wave of a very serious issue, often fatal and more prevalent than ever before – road rage.  Road rage is defined as anger caused by the stress and frustration of driving in poor conditions.  Unfortunately, that is a definition that needs a makeover!  Road rage today is a violent, often unprovoked aggression in which verbal and physical threats and dangers are widespread.

Just this past weekend, I witnessed an incident that could have escalated quickly and been the next news headline. Fortunately that was not the case, but it was a sad fact that even those of us that feel someone else is being an aggressor, must be mindful that we do not know if that individual is willing to use his/her vehicle, or another weapon of deadly force – to turn an incident into a tragedy.  In this particular situation, a truck pulling into a retail establishment was turning a bit slow for the liking of a small vehicle behind it. The small vehicle beeped excessively to express their frustration and the  driver of the pick up reacted by hitting his brakes in the driveway he was entering – So as to express confusion, concern, and maybe even anger. The aggressors in the vehicle immediately stopped and started to provoke the other driver with a selective finger in the air and verbal taunts.   This is just one example of many, that is now plaguing our cities and roadways.

Road Rage is Rampant

From the heartbreaking recent shooting in which a toddler was riding in a vehicle involved in a road rage case, to the Toledo man who was savagely beaten in front of his family – These news stories ripped from the headlines are anything but make believe.

The statistics are even scarier, with studies, research and reported incidents catching up with the times. As reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

  • 66% of all traffic deaths are a result of aggressive driving
  • 37% of road rage incidents have a firearm involved
  • Male individuals under 19 are the most likely to have road rage
  • 50% of drivers admit to retaliating with aggression when provoked
  • Over a 7 year study, 218 murders and almost 13,000 injuries were reported
  • 2% of drivers report trying to run an aggressive driver off the road

Road rage is a very dangerous scenario. The most common results in serious road rage incidents are grave danger;

  • Accidents
  • Intentional Harm (Firearm, etc)
  • Injury as a Third Party 

As with any evolving issue in our culture today, our laws and standards must evolve to keep up. Just as the definition of ‘Road Rage’ is dated and a far variance from the dangers we commonly see on the roads today, we must push our lawmakers, our insurance companies and our public servants to evolve and recognize the significance, the danger and the need for enforcement.

If you or someone you love was injured or killed in a road rage incident, you must contact my offices immediately.

Catastrophic Pool Injuries

Catastrophic Pool Injuries

In hotels, city parks and even residential developments, public pools provide a popular attraction for kids and adults of all ages.  While families just like yours and mine can enjoy a day splashing in the sun, serious dangers can be found in almost every pool setting.

Keeping yourself and your family safe is paramount! We have an expectation of safety and along with our own due diligence, are able to take advantage of the great outdoors. Unfortunately for many, visits to pools can have catastrophic outcomes.

Common and Serious Pool Dangers

From slips and falls to head, back and neck injuries – Pools and water attractions with slides, diving boards and similar features can be an accident just waiting to happen.  Poor maintenance, wear and tear over time and general negligence can all contribute to accidents and injuries.

Even while abiding by all common pool rules, such as no running, diving, or jumping – Your family may still be at risk. The Centers for Disease Control reported that in 2011-2013, an average of 5,000 people annually were treated for injuries in pools. While the majority of accidents may occur at private residential pools, about ¼ of children hurt were injured while at a public pool.

Ranging from serious head and neck injuries to back injuries, severe broken bones and more – Pool related casualties can have a large impact now and in the future.  Immediate medical care, surgeries and even long term, permanent injuries can change a family forever.

Vigilance to Prevent Catastrophic Injuries at Pools

As a parent, we may not be able to control and prevent every possible accident from harming our little angels, but a little vigilance can certainly go a long way.  If you visit a public pool at a park, development, hotel or similar facility, doing your own safety check can have a big impact.

  • Check for slippery decks and walkways around the pool
  • Ensure your child can safely use attractions like diving boards and slides
  • Read and understand all safety rules and policies
  • Visually inspect for any dangers from wear and tear, weather damage, etc
  • Confirm safety response procedures and lifeguards on duty
  • Understand and explain safe areas to swim, jump or dive
  • Ensure any toys or objects are safe for use and permitted
  • Keep a close, watchful eye at all times

Report any dangers or observations to the appropriate management, and if necessary, refrain from using a facility all together.  It may be an inconvenience to go to another place, but safety is always the top priority.

If you or someone you loved was injured at a public pool, you must seek expert legal help. Contact my offices immediately!

Tragic Ohio State Fair Accident

Tragedy Strikes at Ohio State Fair

A horrific accident at the Ohio State Fair took the life of an 18 year old Ohio man and 7 other individuals were seriously injured.  A ride categorized as an ‘Extreme Thrill’ ride took the life of Tyler Jarrell when it malfunctioned. A video captured the accident as it occurred.  It clearly shows a large extension arm spinning a circular shaped unit filled with cars holding passengers that broke away when the ride reached an unsafe speed, plummeting Jarrell and others to the ground. The cause has yet to be determined, but this tragedy shines light on the controversial safety of mobile fair and festival rides in Ohio and across the country.

This ride in particular passed all inspections the day the accident occurred. The ride manufacturer proactively shut down all similar rides across the globe to ensure no further incidents occurred until a cause is determined.

Mobile Carnival and Fair Ride Accidents

The governing body for inspections and quality control of amusement rides is the Ohio Department of Agriculture.  The ODA is responsible for monitoring and governing a variety of operations, from fair rides to pest control businesses and numerous other departments.

The inspector cited that nothing out of the ordinary was noticed on the ride, and the ride was able to open as scheduled for the fair’s opening day.  About a dozen other rides were not released to open due to incomplete inspection reports or the rides did not pass inspection.

Fair ride accidents happen!  In Lake County, a young boy was electrocuted at a fair when the fence he touched was electrified, unbeknownst to visitors or employees. Another incident in 2010 at the Geauga County Maple festival ejected two passengers during a ride, and the Ohio State Fair in 2002 led to multiple passengers suffering severe injuries when a car operated by an extended arm crashed 15 feet to the ground. Unfortunately, these tragedies are common across the country.

Ride Accident Statistics

A report in Time Magazine estimates that about 12 kids are injured and treated each day after suffering injuries on amusement rides.  The 2013 study by the Consumer Products Safety Commission analyzed hospital data over a 20 year span and found that 2,500 injuries were reported in the US.

Many studies combine stationary or permanent ride data with that of mobile fairs and carnivals, so the numbers are likely lacking some merit and potentially even under-reported. The Outdoor Amusement Business Association estimates that over 500 million visitors frequent festivals and fairs during the seasonal months.

Causes of Accidents and Injuries

Common causes of accidents, injuries and fatalities in mobile fair rides include;

  • Operator error
  • Ride Malfunction
  • Manufacturing Issue
  • Tampering
  • Inclement Weather
  • Inspection Errors
  • Health Conditions
  • & More

Stricter standards for safety and operator training are critical for preventing these tragedies from continuing or even becoming more widespread. Unfortunately for the Jarrell family, this accident will forever change their lives.

If you or someone you loved was injured at a fair, carnival or amusement park, you must seek expert legal help. Contact my offices immediately!

110 out of 111 Former NFL Players’ Brains Diagnosed with CTE

Share Button

Over the many years, I have blogged about concussions and closed head injuries resulting from football activities more than any other topic.

With high school football practices commencing across the country, I thought that the recent story on concussions in USA Today was very timely to say the least.

As the clinical evidence continues to pile up, it becomes very visible that head trauma from contact football—whether it is isolated or repeated in nature—has significant, permanent, debilitating effects.

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy is a relatively “new” degenerative brain disease being researched primarily among deceased NFL players.  More and more scientific research is being done to determine exactly what this disease can do to a person’s brain, especially those who play contact sports such as football or boxing.

A recent study released in a USA Today article is causing quite a ripple in the research field and among NFL players.

111 former professional football players donated their brains to research CTE and how repetitive closed head injuries can affect them.

Out of the 111 donated brains, 110 were diagnosed with CTE.

This research indicates the following:

  • The leading cause of death, 47% of former players, was a neurodegenerative-related cause including symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease and dementia symptoms
  • The most common cause of death among those studied was suicide
  • 26 out of the 27 with mild CTE pathology results had behavioral issues before their death
  • 89 % of the 84 participants with severe CTE pathology suffered behavioral/mood symptoms

Several common symptoms among those who have been diagnosed with CTE include:

  • Memory loss
  • Erratic or impulsive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Impaired judgement
  • Difficulty with balance

While many of the studies revolve around football players, football is not the only occurrence that can cause CTE. Football is, however, one component in head injuries that can be avoided with proper education and protocols.

If my sons want to play football I would insist that they sit down with medical professionals that specialize exclusively in head trauma sports cases. I would hope that the clear and convincing evidence of the everlasting, debilitating consequences would deter them from participating.

I think it is morally irresponsible for a parent and/or coach not to do this with each and every player. 

Over the last 36 years I have developed a specialty in representing people and their families who have sustained permanent brain injuries whether, resulting from a traumatic birth injury or a work-related episode. If you need my help, call me and meet with me today to discuss your case.

Dangers of Heat on the Football Field

Share Button

Tragedy on the Football Field

For one Ohio family, a Kent State football practice took a tragic turn.  Tyler Heintz, a freshman football player, was rushed to the hospital after reportedly collapsing following a routine football practice.  What could possibly have taken the life of a young, healthy athlete? The preliminary cause of death has been attributed to hyperthermia, highlighting the very real dangers of rising temperatures this time of year.

Hyperthermia, as defined by the National Institutes of Health, is irregularly high body temperature caused by our bodies failing to cool themselves, and regulate heat coming from our surrounding environment.

Hyperthermia is more commonly referred to as;

  • Heat stroke
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Syncope (heat related fainting)
  • Heat fatigue
  • Heat cramps

Risk Factors of Heat Related Illnesses

  • Exertion
  • Age
  • Prescription medication side effects
  • Skin and circulation issues
  • Alcohol or drugs
  • Under or over weight
  • Blood pressure abnormalities
  • Heart lung or kidney disease

Safety Measures to Prevent Heat Related Tragedies

While many cases of heat related illness can be difficult to predict, there are precautionary steps that can be taken, and warning signs to watch for. Particularly for athletes, laborers and other individuals that spend time outside during extreme temperatures, these critical steps can have a profound impact.

One study by the American Meteorological Society found that from 1980-2009, there were 58 documented cases of hyperthermia deaths related to football. Changing seasons and rising temperatures, particularly in the beginning of heatwaves and warm seasons, are particularly dangerous. Morning practices have long been thought to be a safer alternative to the afternoon sun and rising daily temperatures, but morning humidity can be equally as dangerous.

The Best Ways to Prevent or Detect Heat Related Illness;

  1. Hydrate
  2. Be aware of your body
  3. Keep a watchful eye for each other, especially elderly individuals
  4. Dress appropriately
  5. Act fast – call 911

Drew Brees’ Latest Campaign

Football great Drew Brees is pioneering a campaign this year to raise awareness for EHS or Exertional Heat Stroke. His easy acronym is a great way to remember what to do:

HEAT

(H) High Temperatures

(E) Exercise or Activity

(A) Acting Confused

(T) Time to Call 911

Ohio’s 3 Foot Law When Passing Bicycles

Ohio’s 3 Foot Clearance Law for Bicycles.  

With spring right around the corner, we will soon see an influx of bicyclists on the road.  Cycling is great exercise, and we have gorgeous landscapes to travel via bicycle across Ohio and beyond!  As an avid outdoor enthusiast I can certainly appreciate the love of cycling. However for many cyclists, this is also the most dangerous time of year!  Drivers are not used to looking for, or avoiding bicyclists on the roads.

3 Feet of Clearance Saves Lives

In December 2016, Governor Kasich officially signed a law that requires all motor vehicles to maintain at least 3 feet of clearance from a cyclist on the road.  While passing, vehicles must provide ample room and wait to pass based on traffic patterns.  While many local levels of government have had similar laws in place, the December action makes this mandate the state minimum in Ohio.

Sharing the Roads in Cleveland and Across Ohio

Most cyclists are well versed in the safety protocols that accompany their outdoor pastime.  From using proper equipment to following traffic laws – Operating a bicycle safely is certainly a committed task!

Unfortunately, it is also one of the most dangerous forms of exercise.  From distracted driving threats to fluke accidents, it can be a deadly hobby.  Even if a cyclist does everything correctly and by the law, a dangerous driver can quickly cause irreparable injury or death.

Slow down and pass with care as the temperatures start to rise in Northeast Ohio! A cyclist’s life depends on it.  If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle related accident,  call my offices immediately.  As your Ohio accident attorney, I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Surviving an Accident: Now and in the Future

Share Button

Catastrophic Injury Will Have a Catastrophic Impact

Surviving the initial emotional and physical trauma of an accident is often only the beginning.  Personal injury and accident claims serve to hold the guilty party accountable, and provide an injured victim the means to live as normal of a life as possible. From financial demands to physical restrictions, the long-term effects of an accident or serious injury can last for years and even indefinitely.

As an experienced personal injury attorney, I have had the pleasure and heartache of meeting some of the most determined, motivated and inspiring people in our great state. These folks have often been blindsided, their ENTIRE life changed in an instant. The intense pressure and stress of recovering from the initial accident itself can be incredibly overwhelming.  This is often the number one reason for delay in consulting with an attorney!  You simply must process things over time, as the pain and sense of unknown can be too much to bare.  Unfortunately, this is precisely why you need a legal expert in your corner as soon as possible!

A Hypothetical Timeline – How the Events Unfold

Immediately following an accident, the foreseeable future is consumed with physical and healthcare unknowns.  From diagnosis to treatment, prevention and medication – The accident has completely changed your immediate future, or the future of your loved one.  It is common to be incapable of making decisions during this taxing time.  Whether you or a family member was injured, the emotional toll is immeasurable.

Looking past the initial physical obstacles and forward to the road of recovery can become an even larger time for concern.  While consumed with the severity of an injury, it is common to focus simply on surviving!

What happens next?  Over the coming days, months and years – Your world as your know it has changed.

In the event of a serious injury, here are some common things to consider –

  • Loss of independence
  • Having to move – Your home cannot accommodate your injuries
  • Drastic and painful changes to your physical appearance
  • Loss of mobility
  • Wound care
  • Physical therapy
  • Continued doctor care and/or surgeries
  • Permanent injuries – Hip , back , etc.
  • Future medication, PT, doctor visits, etc.
  • Change / Loss of job – Cannot perform job functions

Your accident or injury is simply not over, when it is over.

Heartbreaking Headlines for CTE

Share Button

25 Year Old Football Player Diagnosed with CTE Posthumously

Following his tragic death as a result of an infection and heart attack, a 25 year old former college football star had definitive markers showing Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, also known as CTE.  Rewind two decades to where it all began; a six year old boy expressed interest in and began playing football.  As a father myself, it is difficult to imagine telling your son or daughter no to such a simple request! Knowing what I know now, I cannot fathom the regret, pain and destruction this seemingly innocent decision has.

Understanding CTE and What Is Happening

CTE signs and symptoms can be elusive, and mimic symptoms of other illnesses.  CTE is the result when the tau proteins in our brains no longer support their normal cell function.  Tau proteins move nutrients and other essential elements from one area of a cell to another.  After repeated or severe head trauma, tau proteins can begin to change.  Imagine crumpling a piece of paper and flattening it out again – the paper is still there, but it will never look or function the same.  The tau proteins begin to form tangles, impacting their function and also impeding the transport system within a cell itself.

Symptoms of brain injuries will vary depending on where the injury occurs.  When tau protein changes are happening in the brain, it begins in the prefrontal cortex, located in the area we know as our forehead.  This part of the brain governs emotion, behavior and decision making skills.  Because CTE can only be concretely diagnosed after death, the fact that the signs and symptoms are somewhat ambiguous is just fuel on the fire. For this 25 year old victim, his CTE evidence was irrefutable, with over 10 different areas of his brain showing the tau protein malformations.  This was the first time in history where such a profound case of CTE was found in such a young individual.

Symptoms of CTE

There is no treatment or cure for CTE at this time.  The first step is for us as a society to recognize the problem in the medical community and begin to research and study more widespread to identify symptoms and work towards treatment or a cure.

Identifying the potential signs and symptoms of CTE for you or a loved one is critical.

  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Memory Loss
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Abusive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Blurred Vision
  • Insomnia
  • Neck Pain
  • Tinnitus
  • Anxiety
  • Speech problems

New Study Links Concussions to Increased Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease

Share Button

The term “brain injury” sounds a great deal more severe than the word “concussion.” What many injured victims don’t always understand is that a concussion diagnosis should elicit the same concern, especially when looking at long-term effects.

Closed head injuries can happen in a multitude of scenarios: motor vehicle accidents, sports related injuries, catastrophic injuries, workplace accidents, or even an incident as simple as a slip and fall.

Any and all head injuries should be addressed immediately and followed up with proper medical attention. The reason is simple:

A new study indicates concussions may actually magnify the risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

Suffering one or multiple concussions can increase this risk, but genetic factors play a role as well.

The research study was conducted by Boston University School of Medicine on 160 military veterans.  Their findings identified several factors:

  • A traumatic brain injury associates with the lower cortical thickness
  • The brain region where the lower cortical lays is the first area to be affected in Alzheimer’s disease
  • When a concussion occurs, it is possible that the cortical thickness accelerates
  • Memory decline is also a key factor in relation to the lower cortical and a concussion
  • Many of the study subjects suffered concussions that resulted in unconsciousness
  • Cortical thickness was found in both veterans who suffered multiple concussions as well as one concussion
  • Those with a high-risk genetic history and a concussion were subject to a higher likelihood of less gray matter in the brain

What does this mean for catastrophic injury victims?

When I take on a car accident, catastrophic injury or workplace accident claim that results in a serious traumatic brain injury, I understand the potential long-term effects for my client.

If you have suffered anything from a mild concussion to serious head injury, I urge you to seek medical attention so that you receive the proper treatment and diagnosis. Delaying your treatment can be life threatening or seriously affect your long-term health!

Before you agree to a settlement on your claim, contact an experienced attorney to make sure you receive the compensation necessary to address any possible future health issues. As your Ohio catastrophic injury attorney, I will be there for you and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

5 Injuries That Make Thanksgiving Day the Most Dangerous Holiday

Share Button

Thanksgiving is a day dedicated to our family, friends, and thankfulness for the lives we live. While it is meant to show our appreciation for our loved ones and health, it is also considered one of the most dangerous holidays in the United States.

Thanksgiving Eve is notoriously known for its high number of drunk drivers on the road due to amount of college students home for the first full holiday vacation. Additionally, there overall number of drivers on the road rises greatly as a result of holiday travel.

However, Thanksgiving Eve accidents do not even account for the statistics of Thanksgiving Day accidents and injuries.

Thanksgiving Day was declared by Forbes as the most dangerous holiday in the U.S.

Although the statistics from Forbes’ article was from 2009, recent studies and interviews with emergency room directors show that Thanksgiving Day is typically an ER’s busiest day of the year.

Many only think of motor vehicle accidents as the top suspect for these dangerous injuries, but there are many other culprits playing a part in the holiday’s notoriety.

The National Safety Council, the CDC, and several emergency doctors attribute the following injuries to Thanksgiving activities:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Increased number of travelers as well as impaired drivers lead to a higher risk of vehicle injury/fatality.
  • Kitchen fires: From 2011 to 2013 there were approximately 2,100 residential kitchen fires on Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. Whether it is due to turkey deep fryer grease, commotion in the kitchen, or distraction from kitchen equipment, kitchen fires can be deadly.
  • Food poisoning: The CDC estimates 1 in 6 Americans suffer from food borne illnesses in a year. Experts suggest storing leftovers immediately and properly, thawing the turkey on the counter should be avoided and using gloves while preparing food.
  • Overeating: We don’t hear often that overeating is dangerous, but on holidays with large meals and high in sodium, it can be especially dangerous for people with diabetes, heart conditions, or high blood pressure. Be smart about portions and don’t overdo it.
  • Preparation injuries: These injuries are common in ER’s on Thanksgiving. They can include severe lacerations from using knives, deep fryer burns to the body, and slip and falls.

Whether you are traveling to a loved one’s home or hosting the holiday dinner in your own home, be safe on this day of thanks! If you or a loved one was injured due to another’s negligence, call me immediately.
