A Look Back At 2017/A Look forward Into 2018
We want to wish all of our friends a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year! 2017 was a great year for us and we wish everyone all the best in the coming year! We are fortunate to love what we do and look forward to continuing to help our clients with their cases in 2018! We have a great staff consisting of Rebecca (paralegal), Renee (paralegal), Scott (paralegal), Kathryn, (paralegal), Desiree (assistant), Jerlean (receptionist), and Elizabeth (legal intern). They are hard workers, dedicated to helping our clients. We enjoy working with them and are thankful for their commitment to our clients.
Our work is very important to us. We meet people at the lowest moments of their lives. Delayed diagnosis of Cancer, injured in an accident caused by an uninsured driver, or even worse, the tragic loss of a loved one from a vehicle accident or medical negligence mishap. No matter the situation, we take pride in helping clients get the answers and compensation they deserve.
In 2017, we provided excellent service and compassionate case management to many clients. Below is a list of highlights from 2017 and a glimpse of cases we are working on in 2018.

CASES THE FIRM IS CURRENTLY INVESTIGATING
- MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES- Victims of birth injuries, surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis of stroke or cancer, and all other cases of medical malpractice are often eligible to recover compensation for medical bills and other damages.
- WRONGFUL DEATH CASES- When a fatality is caused by a negligent accident, defective product, medical malpractice or other wrongful act, it is considered a wrongful death. In Ohio, the families of wrongful death victims have a right to seek compensation for their economic and emotional losses by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
- CAR/TRUCK ACCIDENT CASES – Many of our clients are injured in auto/truck accidents. We can assist injured workers who are injured as a result of these type accidents. We represent injured clients in their claims against other drivers who have caused these type accidents.
- PREMISES LIABILITY CASES- Premises liability law covers injuries suffered or damage sustained on a property due to an owner’s negligence in removing or marking physical dangers. Hazardous conditions created by an owner’s failure to maintain safety may result in serious injury or even death.
- DRAM SHOP AND LIQUOR LIABILITY CASES – There are laws in Ohio, known as the Ohio Dram Shop Act, written to protect those injured or harmed as the result of bars, restaurants and other alcohol providers over-serving patrons. If someone is injured due to a drunk driver, injured in a bar fight and other way involving alcohol, contact us to discuss your rights.
- NURSING HOME CASES – Society is getting older. More family members and friends are spending their later years in nursing homes or in assisted living. Unfortunately, some patients do not receive proper care and attention resulting in neglect and injury to members of society who are vulnerable. If you or a loved one have been harmed while living in a nurse home or assisted living facility, please contact us.
