Posted by Michael Jagunic on Apr 20, 2015 9:27:34 PM

For a variety of reasons, victims of medical malpractice often delay speaking to a Cleveland medical malpractice attorney about filing a lawsuit.  Dealing with the pain and frustration of an injury caused by a physician or surgeon’s negligence can be extremely difficult.  Finding the time, energy, and right attorney during this time of immense stress can seem impossible.  Similarly, in instances where medical or surgical malpractice leads to a loved one’s wrongful death, there are so many matters to deal with that speaking to an experienced Cleveland medical malpractice attorney seems like something that can wait until things settle down.

New Study Exposes Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injury

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Apr 4, 2015 9:36:28 PM

As we have discussed many times on this blog, one of the most serious types of injury we encounter as Cleveland personal injury lawyers is traumatic brain injury.  Traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) occurs when a head injury disrupts the functioning of the brain.  These disruptions can often be life-shattering, resulting in memory loss, loss of cognitive function, or even comas.  According to a new study appearing in this month’s Annals of Neurology, even cases of TBI that appear to be relatively minor can cause significant long-term damage.

Ohio Medical Malpractice Lawyers: Stringent Malpractice Laws Continue to Harm Injured Ohioans

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Mar 31, 2015 10:31:41 AM

If you think medical malpractice lawsuits in Ohio are out of control, think again.  Medical malpractice insurer Diederich Healthcare has released its annual Medical Malpractice Payout Analysis, and once again Ohio ranks among the states in which it is least likely that a medical malpractice victim will be fairly compensated for his or her injuries.  Ohio’s per capita payout, the total paid out per person residing in the state, ranks 44 out of 50.  With damage caps, restrictive lawsuit initiation procedures, and a tight statute of limitations, Ohio medical malpractice laws favor negligent medical professionals by making it difficult for those injured victims to recover the settlement or verdict they deserve.  Any notion that Ohio medical malpractice lawsuits are out of control is nothing but skewed media hype.

What is Negligence? Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys Explain the Basics

Posted by Michael Jagunic on Mar 27, 2015 10:29:00 PM

On this blog, we talk a lot about negligence.  Whether discussing medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, nursing home injuries, or most any other personal injury topic, we are really just talking about a specific variety of the same thing: negligence.   Ohio personal injury law allows injured victims to recover compensation when their injuries were caused by someone—a driver, a doctor, or perhaps even a business—who was negligent.   To prove a negligence claim, though, a plaintiff will have to prove each element of his or her negligence case against the defendant.
