Personal injury claims may result from Ohio crash

Car accidents can quickly change lives. In an instant, a person or several people could suffer serious injuries that leave them needing a long time to recover. A number of other difficulties could also arise from such events, and it is not unusual for personal injury claims to be filed by the injured parties.

It was recently reported that an accident in Ohio resulted in one death and the injuries of multiple other people. The crash involved two vehicles, and details state that the driver of a car was heading south when she failed to remain in the correct lane. As a result, her vehicle collided head-on with a northbound SUV. There were at least three people in the car, including a toddler, and at least two people in the SUV.

Alleged crime spree puts man in need of criminal defense

In many cases, those on the outside of a situation will not know what was going through another individual's mind when he or she carried out certain actions. Nonetheless, if those actions put others in harm's way or break the law, it is likely that criminal charges will result. The accused person may then want to use a criminal defense presentation to protect his legal rights and fight for a just outcome.

One man in Ohio is likely focused on his defense options after his recent arrest. According to reports, the man robbed or attacked multiple people and committed 10 felonies and two misdemeanors over the course of 21 minutes. The alleged crimes all took place within one block between 9:54 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.

Your legal rights after injuries at a hospitality venue

Were you or a loved one injured while attending a trade show, wedding, conference, or another occasion at a venue such as a club, resort or hotel in Springfield? If you can prove that the venue owner was negligent and failed to prevent the incident that caused the injury, you might have grounds to file a civil lawsuit. The owners of such facilities have to take reasonable care to protect guests from harm.

Taking reasonable care involves regular inspections to assess the safety of the facility, equipment and furniture. The venue owner must also see that service and preparation areas for food and beverages are clean. Also, employees should undergo background checks and receive adequate training and supervision, and the facility managers must ensure that necessary measures for building security are in place. The failure to meet any of these standards could indicate negligence.

Wrongful death: Man killed in head-on crash in Ohio

Many people can feel as if their lives have no direction after suddenly losing a loved one. The aftermath of a fatal car accident can create confusion and pain, and many individuals may feel as if they will never get over the unexpected loss. During this time, they may explore ways in which to help themselves find closure, and for some, that journey could include filing wrongful death claims against drivers considered at fault for fatal accidents.

One family in Ohio may be considering this option after a recent crash. According to reports, a 21-year-old man was driving a pickup truck west when he failed to keep his vehicle in the correct lane. As a result, his truck sideswiped an SUV before crashing head-on into another pickup truck.

Professional malpractice: Misdiagnosis a dangerous error

Having any type of medical issue can certainly be scary for Ohio residents. Even if an issue seems small, health concerns are often best addressed by professionals. Unfortunately, some people may go to the doctor's office or a hospital in hopes of obtaining information about their health concerns only to face professional malpractice.

When it comes to medical malpractice claims, misdiagnosis makes up a considerable number of those claims. In fact, approximately 34% of these claims that involved death or permanent disability involved misdiagnosis, making it the most common medical mistake as well as the most dangerous. Facing the wrong diagnosis or a delayed diagnosis could cause serious problems for patients, including causing serious illnesses and allowing conditions to progress due to improper treatment or no treatment at all.

Head-on car accident leaves Ohio trooper in critical condition

Wrong-way drivers are a significant danger on roadways. Some people may drive the wrong direction due to intoxication, and others may simply get lost and end up going the wrong way. Unfortunately, any wrong-way driver could easily cause a car accident that leads to serious injuries.

It was recently reported that state troopers in Ohio were informed of an erratic driver on the interstate. A trooper began to look for the vehicle, and while doing so, the driver apparently made a U-turn on the roadway and began traveling south in the northbound lanes of the interstate. This action resulted in that vehicle crashing head-on into the trooper's vehicle. Both vehicles caught fire, and two individuals stopped and pulled the trooper from his car.

Drug charges call for criminal defense strategy for 2 in Ohio

Facing criminal charges is a situation most people want to avoid. Even if they are participating in questionable activity, they likely hope that police will not charge them with crimes. Of course, this outcome is not always what happens, and many people find themselves in need of a criminal defense due to facing drug charges or other allegations.

It was recently reported that two people in Ohio are facing this type of ordeal. Apparently, authorities went to a residence and conducted a search. The report did not mention whether the officers had a search warrant or what may have raised suspicions about the residence in the first place. Nonetheless, officers reportedly uncovered oxycodone, methamphetamine and a suspicious powder that was sent for lab testing.

Dogs can become aggressive for many reasons and you could suffer

You may consider yourself a dog person. You may have had dogs growing up or have one as an adult. You likely have also done your best to teach your children that dogs can pose dangers as well as be friendly. Still, it is important to understand that a strange dog or even your own pet could show aggression when you least expect it.

Of course, most dogs will show warning signs that they feel agitated, scared or defensive. Understanding these signs and remembering to back off when a dog shows them could help prevent a serious incident that could lead to injuries.

Wrongful death: Ohio teen killed in single-vehicle accident

For many events in life, there are various routes people can take to handle them. For instance, a person could consume alcohol and then choose not to drive or could get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Unfortunately, the latter decision often results in serious car accidents, and when a person is killed in a crash, the family may be deciding whether to file a wrongful death claim.

It was recently reported that a crash in Ohio resulted in the death of one individual. Apparently, the incident involved only one vehicle. Reports indicated that a 19-year-old man was driving a pickup truck south when he failed to keep the vehicle on the road. The crash resulted in an 18-year-old female passenger being thrown from the truck.

Loss of vision in eye leads to medical malpractice lawsuit

It can be difficult for anyone to accept that an ability he or she once had has been lost. For some, this acceptance can be even more challenging if the loss resulted from the mistakes or negligence of a medical professional. Medical malpractice could easily cause individuals in Ohio and elsewhere to suffer unnecessarily.

It was recently reported that a malpractice suit was filed in another state. The situation leading to the lawsuit began when a man visited an ophthalmologist in order to have cataract surgery. Unfortunately, after the surgery, the man contracted an infection, and within two days, he lost sight in that eye and was unable to recover that ability. The lawsuit was filed against the doctor involved in the surgery and the eye center where the operation took place.
