  1. 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...

  2. 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.

    In Ohio, you do not actually need to sustain a bite in order to make a claim for personal injuries against the dog owners as long as the dog was the proximate cause of your injuries. Generally, landlords will not liable to you as harborers of the dog expect for in very limited circumstances. I suggest you contact an attorney to discuss the facts of your case in more detail. Best of luck to you.

    The fact that the vehicle does not have license plates would not jeopardize insurance coverage. The VIN should be sufficient to properly identify the vehicle as the insured vehicle.

    If the driver was operating the vehicle with the owner's permission, then the driver would not be a "permissive user" and would not be covered for liability under the owner's policy. You stated that "the vehicle was not insured by the owner." I do not know if that means the owner had insurance but the vehicle was not listed on the policy or the owner had no insurance at all. If the vehicle was not listed on the policy but was a newly purchased vehicle, it is automatically insured for a...

    In Ohio, the driver of a stolen vehicle is not covered under the vehicle owner's policy because the driver is not a "permissive user." Contrast you fact scenerio with a situation in which a friend asks to borrow you car to run to the store. The friend does not have insurance. The friend gets in an accident. The friend would be covered under the owner's policy becuase he was a "permissive driver." You as the claimant have the burden to prove the driver was operating the vehicle as a...

    Anyone can claim to be injured and demand money for damages they allegedly suffered. Every personal injury case involves two components that must be proven by the preponderence of the evidence.

  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,...

    Coverage determinations are policy specific. You should report the accident to your insurance company so they can undertake a coverage determination. Even if you are a permissive user, your employer's insurance policy may require that you be specifically listed on the policy in order to provide liability coverage. I would request that your employer's insurance company cite specific policy language that precludes coverage to you. Good luck.

    You may be able to assert a claim against your own insurance company if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. The per person limit of the UM/UIM coverage must be greater than the liability policy limits of the at-fault party. If your UM/UIM limits are equal to or less than the at-fault person''s liability limits then generally you cannot bring a claim. One area that you may want to inquire about is whether you have medical payments coverage (medpay). If you do, you can assert a...
