This is a continuation of an ongoing blog series we are doing related to the evidence that should be collected following serious traffic crashes. The blog serious illustrates how we find and preserve critical evidence in truck accident and car crash cases including evidence that is overlooked by the police and evidence that other law firms do not even know exists.

How Does No-Fault Insurance Work In Kentucky?

Kentucky is one of several states that uses a "No-Fault" system for motor vehicle accident. What this means is that if you're involved in an accident in Kentucky, you will have coverage for medical bills, lost wages and other costs, no matter who is at fault for the accident. Also, if you are a Kentucky resident with No-Fault coverage and are involved in an accident in any U.S. state, you are entitled to No Fault benefits no matter who is at fault. In Kentucky, No-Fault benefits are known as Personal Injury Protection, i.e. PIP.

Finding And Preserving Evidence After A Truck Accident Or Car Crash - Part I

At Rittgers & Rittgers, we are sometimes asked what separates us from other law firms that claim to handle truck wreck and car crash cases involving catastrophic injuries and deaths.

No Charges After Rape Investigation

We recently represented a young man in his early 20s who began dating a young woman. Their relationship lasted for few months. During their relationship, they engaged in consensual sexual activity between 30 to 50 times. They had sex between 10-12 times in a state park at night in the young man's car.

Quick Primer on the Sealing of Criminal Records

Ohio has recently expanded the eligibility for sealing one's criminal record. Ohio law now permits up to five low level felonies to be sealed so long as a defendant does not have anything more serious on his or her record. It also permits potentially unlimited misdemeanors to be sealed. Also, a Defendant is able to seal a misdemeanor conviction and some third-degree felonies when he or she has no more than one misdemeanor and one third degree felony conviction. Certain exceptions exist, however, whereby an individual with more than two convictions may still be eligible. For example, multiple charges that arose from the same incident (such as a defendant who is charged with trespass and disorderly conduct as part of the same course of conduct) would likely be viewed as one conviction for purposes of sealing. Also, minor misdemeanors, such as possession of drug or drug paraphernalia, do not count as a conviction for purposes of sealing.

Not Enough: Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus reveals only names of abusive clergy.

Church SteepleToday, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus, Ohio released a list of clergy who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors. Publication of the list is important for survivors, because it gives them validation. Simply seeing a perpetrator's name on a list serves as corroboration of that survivor's experience. And while this is a step in the right direction by the Diocese, it should not be championed as more than it actually is: Just names.
