Criminal charges follow fatal motorcycle crash in Ohio

When someone else's negligence or recklessness causes a person's death, the immediate family members of the deceased have the right to sue for economic and emotional damages caused by the loss of their loved one. Generally, in Ohio wrongful death claims, one family member is selected as the plaintiff to represent the other family members.

Whether mild or severe, TBI requires prompt medical treatment and monitoring

The effects of traumatic brain injury can be wide-ranging, from subtle changes in personality to permanent physical impairments. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that TBI is a contributing factor in about 30 percent of all injury-related deaths.

Medical Malpractice Excess Recovery Through EMTALA Claim

The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor act, or EMTALA has been on the books since 1986. The initial intent of the legislation was to ensure nondiscriminatory patient access to emergency care and to prevent the practice of dumping, or discharging of uninsured patients. EMTALA claims often go hand in hand with traditional medical negligence claims because they can often occur at the same time. However, due to the fact that EMTALA claims are Federal in nature, they are not subject to state damage caps. Therefore, if a patient suffers injury as a direct result of an EMTALA claim they may receive compensation in excess of the medical malpractice claim.

Injuries from medical negligence a serious risk in Ohio

Injurious medical errors happen more than you might expect, and the consequences can be devastating. In fact, the Office of the Inspector General has estimated that the federal government spends more than $4 billion annually to address medical errors in treatment covered by Medicare. It has also been estimated that hospitals report less than 1 percent of adverse medical events, which are defined as harmful events caused by medical care.
