How To Deal With an Auto Accident in Ohio

Do you know the things that you should do following a motor vehicle accident in which you were driving one of the cars involved? Unfortunately, following an accident, your nerves are rattled and there may be injuries too. Still, there are certain things you should do at the accident site and immediately following your accident.

When is an injury classified as work-related?

Getting hurt on the job can be devastating to you and your family. You suddenly can no longer bring home an income, and you're left with medical bills to pay. Fortunately, workers' compensation is there to pay for your medical care and to make sure you get compensated fairly. The first thing you and your attorney need to do is to determine if your injury is work-related.

Driving Under The Influence of Marijuana Creates Challenges for Police

Ohio recently joined multiple other states in the country when it legalized marijuana for medical use. While the bill goes into effect in September 2016, it will be some time before marijuana can be sold in Ohio. Until then, patients will have to go to another state where marijuana use is legal to buy it.

Second opinions: Vital for patient safety

Doctors can make mistakes in diagnosing conditions, which is why many people say that it's important that you get a second opinion about your doctor's diagnosis. It's particularly important to seek a second opinion when you're facing treatments for cancer or major diseases. You want to make sure that biopsies and diagnoses are correct before starting on a program of treatments that have their own risks and side effects.

Sharing the road with truck drivers: The Do's and Don'ts

Most drivers would do just about anything to avoid a getting in an accident with a truck. A passenger vehicle always runs the higher risk of severe or fatal injuries when involved in a collision with an 80,000 lb tractor-trailer. Because of this, drivers should be aware of the common causes of truck accidents and what steps they can take to prevent them.

You deserve respect when you're in a nursing home

If you or a loved one have been hurt in a nursing home and are a victim of abuse, it's important that you get the legal help you need. You shouldn't have to live in fear of a nurse or orderly who injures you, just as you shouldn't have to be concerned about dangerous residents injuring you.

Failing to maintain a truck can put others' lives at risk

Keeping others safe needs to be a priority to trucking companies. In order to keep their vehicles in the best condition, preventative maintenance should always be done. If you've gotten into an accident with a truck that has not been maintained properly, this information may be helpful to your case.
