    Daniel’s Answer

    Best to review with a local attorney. Doesn't sound like the time to settle as your still recovering from your injuries. I encourage you to treat for your injuries and consult a lawyer.

  • Workplace injury Leave and ADA

    I recently returned to full duty work after work injury, no restrictions other that breaks needed, and support brace as needed, having difficulty with the job due to increased problems stemming from injury, exacerbation of symptoms, and worse...

    Daniel’s Answer

    You need to retain a WC lawyer. There shouldn't be a need to file aname additional WC claim under the circumstances you described. Your doctor will need to file a request to take you off work or provide additional restrictions within which you can work without aggravating your allowed conditions.

  • Can I Sue taco bell for being hit by car driven by employee on the clock.

    Daniel’s Answer

    I'd need to get into the details of your case to answer this question completely. If you were in the course & scope of your employment, then you clearly have a WC case. If both you and your co-worker were in the course & scope of employment, then you likely have only a WC case. If however you were in the course & scope but your co-worker was not, then I believe you could have both a PI and WC case. The devil is in the details and you need to meet with an Ohio lawyer that handles both WC & PI to allow him/her to lead the conversation and flush out these issues.

    Daniel’s Answer

    It is possible that your own uninsured motorist coverage might provide assistance in this scenario (assuming you have that type of coverage). Your fiance' should see doctors for his medical needs and a lawyer to discuss his legal options.

  • I got a huge second degree burn on ne about 5 inches long 2 .5 inches wide at work. Due to a faulty oven door do i have a case ?

    Boss and everyone knows about oven door problem, now i have a huge burn taking over my arm

    Daniel’s Answer

    You definitely have a workers' compensation claim. A personal injury claim is a possibility but not likely. What was faulty about the door? Do you believe the fault with the door came from the design or manufacture of the door? If so you could have a claim against the manufacturer. Do you think the fault with the door comes from maintenance of your employer? If so, that claim would likely be barred under Ohio law. Is there a separate company responsible for maintenance? These are the issues to explore with a local attorney that handles workers' compensation and personal injury claims.

  • Are tattoo shops required by law to have liability insurance?

    hurt in a tattoo shop

    Daniel’s Answer

    I do not believe that tattoo parlors are required to carry insurance by law comma however you're right to pursue a claim for injuries sustained while a patron at a tattoo parlor exists completely independent the existence of insurance. From the sounds of your question it appears that you have been told the tattoo parlor does not have insurance. That is more of a problem as it relates to electability than it is to your right to pursue a claim. If you have not been told that the tattoo parlor wax insurance coverage, you should retain an attorney 2 send a demand letter to the tattoo parlor seeking the identity of their insurer for purposes of making a claim on your behalf.

  • Can I be sued if my dog bite a person on my property who was not invited and should not have been there?

    I had the gate to my back yard open to take out garbage and a neighbor came on to my property uninvited. My dog ran out, jumped on her and broke the skin. I don't know if it was a bite or scratches, as I did not see it happen. This person is aware...

    Daniel’s Answer

    Trespassing is a bar to recovery for dog bite cases. Thus, if you are able to prove that your neighbor was trespassing you may not be liable for her injuries. Her status as a trespasser is a factual issue. You should report this to your homeowners or renter's insurance company who will defend the matter on your behalf.

    Daniel’s Answer

    This does not sound like a medical negligence case that can be pursued. Medical negligence cases require injuries that are far more severe in nature. You may wish to speak with a workers' compensation attorney however if you have questions about that underlying claim.

    Yes you can challenge the will. You will need an attorney that handles probate litigation. This will likely be filed in the county your grandmother resided so that is where I'd start to look.

    Daniel’s Answer

    There's no such black and white rule about settling WC cases. There are however many considerations to take into account before settling. You would be best served to speak with an Ohio WC attorney. There are many of us on Avvo, simply search the site for WC attorneys.
