I am so sorry to hear about your grandson. I agree with my colleagues that have already responded. Your daughter and her husband should consult with an experienced attorney who could have the doctor's conduct reviewed for a malpractice case. I hope there is no long term injury to your grandson and wish you the best of luck.See question

Take a look at your auto insurance policy. Because you are making a first party claim (a claim against your own insurance company), whether you can make a diminution of value claim will be controlled by the whether the language of your policy allows such a claim. Your policy is like any other contract that controls the rights and duties of the respective parties. If a DV claim is allowed, it will be in the Collision or UMPD coverage section of the policy. I would urge you to contact an attorney so the policy can be reviewed.See question

Generally, Ohio law precludes liability claims for injuries suffered during a recreational activity. If you participate in a recreational activity then you assume the ordinary risks associated with that activity. Unfortunately, it sounds like you were injured as a result of an ordinary risk of playing hockey. However, you should speak to an attorney about the details of your claim in order to better convey how your injury occurred. With regard to your medical bills, you should contact the rink and inquire whether their policy of insurance provided "medical payments coverage." If such coverage was provided, then you can submit medical bills for payment up to the policy limit. Good luck!See question
as I was in my left lane to turn left a vehicle coming from a parking lot on the right ran into my car causing damages which he was cited from the police
The jurisdictional limit in Small Claims Court is $3,000. If the damage to your vehicle exceeds that amount, you will not be able to recover your full loss. Also, keep in mind, as with any lawsuit, winning a judgment is different from actually recovering money for your loss. If the driver is uninsured, you may get a judgment but never see the money from the judgment. I suggest that you contact your auto insurance company and ask if you had collision coverage or uninsured motorists property damage coverage (UMPD) and the deductible amount. Either coverage would allow you to make a claim for the damage to your vehicle and have it paid (minus your deductible). The burden to collect from the at-fault driver would be shifted to your insurance company. While I understand if you are hesitant to make a claim under your insurance policy, it most likely is the easiest and fastest way to have your vehicle repaired. Best of luck to you!See question

I was in a car accident and the other persons insurance is willing to give me money for my medical bills that has already been paid
Medicaid has a statutory lien against any recovery you receive on behalf of the at-fault party. You must pay Mediciad back if you receive a settlement. I suggest that you contact an attorney to negotiate a settlement that satisfies Medicaid's lien and provides you with compensation for your pain and suffering and other losses. Best of luck!See question
I fell on black ice in a parking lot and have severe injuries that will be a long term recovery can someone advise me how to proceed next to find a lawyer that will help me with my case..
In Ohio, contrary to popular belief, the law holds that property owners/occupiers are not liable to those injured because of natural accumulations of ice and/or snow. Generally, there is no common law duty to remove snow and ice. The rationale is that people know or should know that ice/snow is a hazard during winter months. The burden has been placed on you to keep a reasonable lookout and not on the property owner to remove or warn of the associated dangers of snow/ice. There is an exception if the accumulation was man made as opposed to it being caused by weather. Every case should be reviewed by an attorney to discuss the specific circumstances of the fall. Best of luck to you!See question
I was in an accident that was deemed to not be my fault. I hired a lawyer (who will not return my calls) but DID email me that my total medical costs were $7900 but that the other insurance company is only offering $6000. I do not understand why, ...
To add to the excellent advice of Brian Wilson, this is how I explain it to clients. There are three elements of every negligence case: negligence, causation, and damages. Negligence/fault is often not in dispute. But that doesn't mean the negligent party is the automatically liable for every injury and resulting harm you claim. You must still prove that your injuries and damages were proximately caused by the negligence. If the insurance is not relating a claimed injury to the accident, the settlement offer may be less than the medical bills incurred. Or, the insurance company may be claiming that the treatment rendered was not reasonable or necessary. There could be other reasons too, but you need to sit down with your attorney and find the specific circumstances which apply to your claim. Best of luck to you!See question
