When is it too late to file a medical malpractice suit in Ohio?

When it comes to medical malpractice lawsuits in Ohio, there are several factors that can complicate the timeline imposed by state law for filing. Sometimes, the cause of an injury or the actual malpractice occurs without symptoms of the injury becoming apparent until later -- in some cases, several years later. 

After the accident: Do not speak with another insurance rep

Following a car accident in Ohio, you want to see a medical professional to ensure you do not have any hidden injuries. You will also want to swap insurance information with the other driver, and contact your own auto insurance agency to inform a representative of what occurred. 

3 signs you need a medical malpractice lawyer

Your health care providers are often trustworthy and comforting. Having a doctor by your side through a troubling diagnosis or getting helpful information from a kind pharmacist when you start a new medication can be life-changing. The health care professionals in your life should always do what they can to ensure you are healthy.

Medical mistakes cause at least 250,000 U.S. deaths a year

If you had to guess the third most common cause of death in the United States, what would it be? Maybe cancer? Cardiovascular disease? Surprisingly enough, the answer is medical errors. A recent study says that medical mistakes cause more than 250,000 Americans to die each year. Other reports say the number is higher–440,000 deaths due to medical errors.

2 types of nursing home abuse and neglect you should not overlook

Many people in the Cleveland area believe that they do not need to research highly ranking nursing homes as thoroughly as lower ranking facilities. However, you should not rely on ratings alone to determine if your loved one should become a resident. Nursing home abuse and neglect happen in assisted living and nursing homes all over the country. Some of the most heartbreaking cases come from the best facilities. You should not shy away from assisted living if you are no longer able to provide your elderly relative with the care they need. Due diligence is necessary to ensure you and your relative do not make a decision you might come to regret. 

Distracted driving is serious, and not always about texting

When you hear the term “distracted driving,” you probably think about people using their cellphones to send or receive text messages. While texting is still a serious problem on our roadways, it is not the only distraction that leads to crashes.

What to do if you are a pedestrian involved in a hit-and-run

All drivers learn that if they become part of a collision of any severity, they need to pull off to the side of the road to deal with it. Unfortunately, many drivers still engage in hit-and-runs, and you need to file a claim immediately if you ever become involved in one. 

Steps to take if you are hurt while riding Uber or Lyft

For many people, using a ridesharing app has become a common practice. Services such as Uber and Lyft make it easy for people to get rides anywhere in their city. In July 2017, Lyft announced that it was officially giving over one million rides a day, a milestone already surpassed by Uber.
