I was hospitalized for eight days due to an overdose of medication because a prescription was filled incorrectly. The pharmacy is offering a settlement and I have no idea what is a reasonable amount. Could you help me?
Sorry to hear of your ordeal. You should speak with an experienced Ohio personal injury attorney immediately, preferably one with a perfect 10.0 Avvo rating. An experienced injury attorney will be able to review the facts, help you evaluate your claim and determine the best way to proceed.
Because these types of claims involve many complex issues, I would strongly discourage you from attempting to resolve this matter on your own. The pharmacy and its insurance company are only looking out for their own interests, not yours. They are likely to offer you a very quick small settlement and a promise to take care of your medical expenses to make this go away. That is not likely in your best interests. Also, you should not speak with representatives of the insurance companies without first speaking with an attorney. They will try to use any information gather from you against you.
Generally, these cases are taken on a contingent fee basis, which means you would not be required to pay any upfront fees to your attorney. You should continue to follow your doctors' advice and get any follow-up treatment necessary. You should contact an experienced attorney ASAP. Best wishes.
My husband was severely injured by wet cement last month. Along with the company drivers signing my husbands name, and leaving the receipt in the fence post (not physically giving it to him), we sued due to liability and injuries my husband sustai...
You should address this question and any others you may have to your attorney. They should be willing to explain the process and answer all of your questions. An Answer is a formal response to a Complaint that is filed with the Court when a law suit has been filed. Best wishes.See question
Since we were the victims, we are being told the subrogration lien is coming out of OUR settlement. Since apparently, the person driving the other car was not insured, but his brother who OWNED the car was. My mother died 3 times in the ER the d...
It sounds like you or your mother have a very high dollar case, but there is simply a lack of auto insurance to cover all of your losses. Unless the other driver has some significant assets, which is unlikely, you will not be able to recover anything other than their insurance money. Even if you sued and obtained a judgment for a Million Dollars, they would have to have money or property for you to collect. If they do not, they could simply avoid it by filing bankruptcy.
Spend some time going over this with your attorney so you understand completely what is owed to Medicare and Medicaid. Even if your attorney can negotiate a reasonable reduction on the liens, it sounds like you/your mother are still going to be left with a very small amount of money. One of the greatest thing you can do is help your friends, family, neighbors and the community at large by telling everyone you know about your experience as a cautionary tale and preach to them how important it is to have their own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage at a limit high enough to protect themselves. As you have learned $100,000 does not go very far when a serious injury occurs. Very few people carry sufficient underinsured coverage. Sorry to hear of your ordeal. Wishing the best for you and your family.
She was a passenger in a vehicle that hydro-planed and slammed into a tree. (Lucky to be alive.) The airbag deployed, her teeth were cracked, her body is sore....The vehicle was rented but she was not the driver. The insurance company is telling h...
She needs to get an experienced injury lawyer ASAP to handle the claim and stop talking to the insurance company representatives. The attorney can explore what insurance coverage may be available to assist her. There may be other sources than the drivers policy. Best wishes.See question
They want her to come in and question her.Do i need a lawyer.I guess in this city you have to drive to station and fill out report but she thought police did at scene.Its ironic because other driver did leave the scene.
You should speak with a local attorney that handles traffic and criminal matters before your daughter speaks with police. I would recommend you do so ASAP to try to get in front of any issues. Best wishes.See question
I was bitten on Friday June 20th in my neighborhood. I was seen in Er and now need surgery to amputate my finger at the 1st digit. My dog was bitten also and needed to see her Vet.
Sorry to hear about your circumstances. This sounds like a significant bite. You should definitely consult with an experienced Ohio personal injury attorney. Dog bite claims can be more complex than they seem and often have a higher settlement value that people would assume. If you do not know the owner of the other dog, you will need someone to investigate promptly.
Be sure to take a lot of photos of your wounds and subsequent scars. Most insurers will try to buy you off quickly by offering a few thousand dollars plus your medical expenses. Don’t fall victim to that trick, your claim is likely much more valuable.
You will quickly run into issues of who is paying for your medical treatment. Most assume that the dog owner’s insurer will pay their bills as they are incurred, but that is generally not true. It is likely that your own health insurance will need to cover your immediate care expenses and you may then have an obligation to repay your health insurance company from any amounts you received from the dog owner's insurance. There are many other important issues with which an experienced Ohio injury attorney can assist you.
Generally, these cases are taken on a contingent fee basis, which means you would not be required to pay any upfront fees. Lastly, I would encourage you not to communicate directly with the dog owners insurance company. Retain experienced counsel, someone in Ohio with a 10.0 Avvo rating, and let them handle this matter for you. Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
the driver was intoxicated and no liscense to be riding a motorcycle. He has insurance. And thoughts
Sorry to hear of your ordeal. You did not indicate if you were injured, but given the outcomes of most motorcycle accidents, I will assume you were for purposes of this response. First and foremost you should seek appropriate treatment for your injuries. One thing you should be clear about it is not uncommon for the at fault riders insurance company to refuse to pay for any of your medical treatment until the claim is resolved. You will likely need to rely upon your own health insurance. Please do not let that discourage you from getting any treatment you need. An experienced attorney can help you find proper methods of paying for your treatment or work with the medical providers to assure them that they will be paid when the matter is resolved.

Much more information would need to be reviewed before your question can be answered with any certainty. Medical malpractice claims are very difficult and require experienced counsel. You should consult with an experienced Ohio medical malpractice attorney ASAP. The earlier you have someone involved on your side the better. Wishing the best for you and your child.See question

Before making a change, I would encourage you to discuss all of your concerns with your existing attorney. If you are unsatisfied thereafter, you can always get a second opinion from another Ohio licensed personal injury attorney. Trucking litigation is different than run of the mill traffic crashes. You should make sure any other attorney you speak with is experienced with trucking litigation. Most competent injury attorneys will be able to understand your TOS with the assistance of your treating physicians. If you seek another attorney you need to be aware that your existing attorney will have a claim to be paid for their time spent on your matter, which I am guessing is already in litigation given the date of your crash. This amount could be significant. Best wishes.See question
My husband has all of the bank accounts in his name.
You may need to make several phone calls, but many attorneys will take a case like yours on and then ask the court order the other party to release funds from the accounts to pay the attorney fees. I would encourage you to use the AVVO find a lawyer tool to locate an experienced attorney in your area. Speak with or email several until you find someone willing to help you.
