    Maybe. In Ohio, your son's estate representative can bring what is called a survivorship claim for your son's own injuries, related medical expenditures, and conscious pain and suffering before his death. Those medical expenses may be required to be paid due to mandatory statutory or contractual liens. Talk to your granddaughters' attorney on what suit was brought and did it resolve the possible medical expense liens . In addition, your son's estate representative may also bring a wrongful...

    It can get a little confusing but generally a settlement for physical injuries or illness is not taxable as income. However, if a portion of the settlement proceeds is designated in a settlement agreement as specifically for emotional injury damages or lost wages or even a confidentiality provision, then those non-physical injury or illness components are taxable as income. In general, if you just received a simple settlement check from the insurance company in exchange for a General Release,...

    Its unclear why they may be contacting you - as a witness or as a suspect. Regardless, consult with a local employment law attorney who also has some experience with criminal law. It may be nothing more than they want to talk to you about what you may know.

    Danny should promptly schedule a consultation with a employment law local attorney. The attorney may be able to negotiate favorable terms for the termination. The company might pay the check promptly, allow the termination to be changed to a layoff, and not oppose a claim for unemployment benefits if he is arguably an employee, not an independent contractor. And yes, the first thing is to get a copy of the contract he allegedly signed. And, get a copy of the employee handbook. Best regards!

    I think its worth your while to consult with and possibly hire an attorney to investigate the $7,000 repair bill and perhaps negotiate a lesser amount for you to pay along with payment arrangements you can live with. Otherwise, this may turn ugly and result in a judgment against you, impact your credit worthiness, subject you to wage garnishment, impact your employment, and result in a license suspension until the judgment is paid. Get an attorney now, not later when its too late to undo the...

  7. How long has "At will" employment been the law in Ohio?

    The "at will" employment doctrine arose in the 1880s during the Industrial Revolution. Federal, state, and local governments followed a free market philosophy and rarely intervened in employment practices. This doctrine afforded mutual rights to employees and employers. Employers could terminate employees at any time, and employees could quit their employment whenever they wanted.

    If a medical device malfunctioned, and caused you significant damages, then you need to identify the make and model of the device, and search the internet for a law firm or firms who may be handling similar device malfunction cases on a class action or multi-district basis. These medical device cases are extremely expensive and very risky for one law firm to pursue for one client. And, in Ohio, like many other states, thanks to so-called tort reform, your non-economic damages will be capped at...

    So sorry to hear about your father. A nursing home must assess a resident for fall risks. They must have a written plan to minimize that risk. It appears that the nursing home employee violated the standing order or the fall risk plan. Most nursing home claims boil down to simply not enough staff to provide for the needs of the residents. The facility was likely short-staffed at the time. For wrongful death in Ohio, there is a two year statute of limitations. You and your family members should...

    Ohio has a one year medical malpractice statute of limitations. This means normally you must file suit within one year of the date of the injury by the resident. The one year may be extended under certain circumstances, but you MUST speak to a medical malpractice attorney in Cleveland IMMEDIATELY to determine if you still have time to file suit or time has expired. Call your local bar association's lawyer referral service today, and ask to be referred to a med mal attorney. Call the attorney today.
