Golf Cart Injuries: Who is Responsible?

Golf carts are now frequently being used off the course. We see golf carts used in neighborhoods, airports, malls, beaches, and schools, but manufacturers are making and selling tens of thousands of golf carts per year without essential basic safety features.

$1 Million, Insurance Policy Limits, Recovered for Woman Injured by Dog Bite

A few lessons can be learned from this case. First, a smart business owner should always have at least a million-dollar insurance policy. Second, the lawyer you choose for a serious injury or death case will greatly impact the amount of money recovered and the time it takes to recover the money.

What are the statutes of limitations for an Ohio accident?

When you've been seriously hurt in a car accident, settling your insurance claim is probably the last thing on your mind -- but the insurance company's adjuster keeps calling. Do you have to act immediately, even if you aren't sure how well you're going to recover or how long you may be off work?

Why do some lawyers get higher injury settlements for their clients?

The short answer is because of past jury trial success. Insurance companies are world class data collectors and analyzers. Insurance carriers use complex algorithms to determine the cost of coverage premiums. They also use data and formulas to decide how much money to offer in injury and death cases. The amount they offer will be impacted by the lawyer representing the plaintiff.

Statute of Limitations During the Covid-19 Crisis

Statute of limitations govern the amount of a time a person has to file a lawsuit. As an example, most injury cases in Ohio caused by negligent acts are governed by a two-year statute of limitations. Meaning, if you are in a car crash, you have two years from the date of the crash to file a lawsuit. Medical malpractice claims and intentional torts such as assaults are governed by a one-year statute of limitations. Statute of limitations vary by case, so it is critical you speak with a lawyer quickly if a loved one or you have been injured. Furthermore, the best lawsuits are filed after a long due diligence period to ensure all potential wrongdoers are captured in the lawsuit.

Are The Cases In The "Stella Awards" Emails Real?

No. The "Stella Awards" email is fake news and has been used for decades to convince voters across the country that jury verdicts are out of control. The email claims to be sharing a list of the year's most outrageous personal injury cases and verdicts. It should be noted, however, none of the cases are real. All the cases that are mentioned in the email are fake.
