    The Statute of Limitation (SOL) for an auto accident in Ohio is 2 years from the date of the collision. That means you must either settle your claim or file a lawsuit by the 2 year anniversary of the accident or be forever barred from pursuing the claim and making a monetary recovery. However, the SOL is tolled until a minor reaches age 18. Accordingly, your minor daughter has until her 20th birthday to either settle or file a lawsuit. If you are not happy with the offer, contact an...

    As way of background, Ohio law applies strict liability against the owner, keeper, or harborer of a dog if it causes injury to another. Beyond the fact that this claim seems questionable, there are defenses to strict liability, including criminal trespass. If you have homeowner's insurance, you should immediately report the claim and let it be investigated. Best of luck to you!

    You are entitled to the fair market value of your car or the cost of repairs, whichever is less. If the car is a total loss, you can also make an additional claim for the tax on the sale. You should ask for a copy of the appraisal to make sure it takes into account your vehicle's additional options. Ordinary maintenance items usually do not add value to the vehicle. You can negotiate with the insurance company but you will need evidence that the car is worth more than the offer. Best of luck to you!

    The plaintiffs carry the burden to prove they were injured by the accident. Any evidence you have should be turned over to your insurance company. Good luck.

    While your sister-in-law does not have to report the bite, it is always a good idea to have a report of the incident, especially if the dog has a history of being aggressive. She may be precluded from making a liability claim for injuries because she would be considered a "keeper" of the dog at the time of the injury. It is always best to consult directly with an attorney to discuss the details of the incident. Best of luck to her.

  7. If a fire truck hits you and causes damage to your vehicle, can they be held liable for the damages?

    In Ohio, if the fire truck was indeed responding to an emergency, then you must prove that the driver acted recklessly. Certainly, it is a much harder burden than the traditional negligence standard. Does your friend have collision coverage? If so, submit a collision claim to his insurer to have the car repaired. Your friend will be out his deductible. As a side note, even if the fire truck was not responding to an emergency situtation and the negligence standard applied, your friend would...

  8. My niece in Ohio had her 6 month old son at daycare, upon returning home she notice bruises on his legs.

    First, let me say how sickening and sad it is to hear stories of abuse against innocent children. Determining if the daycare can be held liable for the employee's acts turns, in part, on whether the employee was acting negligently or intentionally. It is difficult to hold an employer responsible for the intentional acts of their employees that are not within the scope of their employment. If the child sustained the injures due to the employee's negligence rather than intentional conduct,...

    It depends. Are you referring to Uninsured Motorists Property Damage Coverage (UMPD) or Uninsured Motorists Bodily Injury Coverage (UM or UMBI)? Only UMPD would cover you in this instance but the policy may require independent, corroborating evidence that the damage was caused by a third party. Another avenue of recovery which is more common is to file a claim under your Collision Coverage which protects you no matter who is at-fault and does not require independent evidence. You would...

  10. I wrote about an alleged dog bite back in May. Neighbor said my dog reached over fence while he was mowing yard and bit his arm

    I advise you to contact your homeowner/renter's insurance company and report the claim. If you would rather avoid reporting the claim, a properly worded Release would preclude any future claims/lawsuits against you but I would consult an attorney to have that prepared. I would advise against a written apology because it could be construed as a tacit acknowledgement that the person was injured by your dog. Best of luck.
