Personal injury victims do not give big insurance all of your medical records. When you bring a claim for bodily injury the insurance company will want you to sign a release to get your medical records. All of your medical records whether related to your claim or not. They are fishing for evidence against you and will not stop at records they are allowed to get.
Your medical records are privileged and are protected by statute in Ohio. The only records the insurance company are entitled to are those related historically or causally to the instant injuries. This means they can get any records from your past if the relate to the same body part that you are claiming injury for.
In the case of Mason v Booker the insurance lawyer wanted all the records from a hospital where Ms Mason had been treated. The court stated they only get those records that relate to the current injury. How this is determined is that the judge looks at the records in private and makes the determination.
So just rember your life is not an open book when you bring a lawsuit. Don’t sign the insurance company authorization that allows them to get everything or you will have given up your rights. Let your own accident injury attorney get all the records anf if their is nothing in there of a personal or embarrassing nature you then can decide if youu want to let the insurance company review all the records.
So just because you were treated at an emergency room for the injury doesn’t mean they get all your records. Though many insurance laywers will try to get things they are not entitled to. Don’t let them intimidate you. After all it was their insured that hurt you.

Harley Davidson of Cincinnati held its open house last Saturday. It was great to see the mix of people enjoying the motorcycles , the booths and vendors and the Dallas Moore band. They had food on the grill and a tented area where you could sit and relax , eat and enjoy the music.
There was everything form space age energy bracelets to decked out mortorcycle caskets. I do have do say that was a bit unusual. Every time I go to a motorcyle biker event I’m blown away by the friendliness of the people and the camaraderie that exists in the biker community. Surprisingly the only thing I did not see was a tatoo booth. Of course tatoos have now gone mainstream though I’m not ready to take the plunge.
Powder Keg Harley Davidson Motorcycle has its bike nights throughout the summer on Friday nights. This Friday I plan to run up there to enjoy the evening and see what their bike nights are all about. Sure its great to hop on my Harley Lowrider and enjoy the ride. That’s what its all about. But the added benefit of the comraderie and social activities and charity runs of the motorcycle community make motorcycling all the more fun.
So far this year my wife and I have been to the bikers ball, The Iron Samaritan’s biker blessing, the Clermont county Motorcycle accident safety event and the Harley Davidson open house. I usually take some Watch for Motorcycles bumper stickers with me as motorcycle safety awareness for bikers as well as car owners continue to be a focus for me. I offer them free to anyone willing to display it. If you would like one just give me a shout. Right now I represent five motorcycle riders for significant motorcycle injury. These accidents were all the fault of car drivers. So its important that we raise the cager’s awareness.

5 Tips that could help you win your Social Security Disability case by a Cincinnati Social Security Disability Attorney
1. When you file your application do not give overqualification of your job experience
2. When you fill out your work history report regarding the physical characteristics make sure you put the maximim in terms of what you had to lift carry etc.
These two things answered correctly can show that your limitations now are such that you can not do your former work.
3. If your application for social security disability gets denied make sure you file an appeal. As social security does not file one for you. And make sure its timely.
4. Apply for social secuirty benefits as soon as it appears that you will not be able to work for one full year
5. Make sure you have good medical care and you follow your doctor’s instructions and direction.
For answers to your questions or help with your social security disability application call Anthony Castelli attorney right now for free at 1-800-447-6549 or email him at his web site www.castellilaw.com

One critical question you must ask before you hire a Cincinnati Ohio Workers compensation attorney.
If you have been hurt at work in the State of Ohio you have the right to file a workers compensation claim. However the workers compensation system is fraught with traps for the unwary. In fact the Ohio workers compensation system is so specialized that the Ohio State Supreme court has granted attorneys that pass the requirements to call themselves Certified specialist in Ohio workers compensation law. The Ohio State bar association administers the attorney certification process.
The Ohio State Bar Association “specialization program” was created to give licensed Ohio attorneys the ability to become certified as specialists in particular areas of law. OSBA certification is a voluntary process that requires a commitment to excellence. Ohio attorneys who are certified as specialists by the OSBA must take and pass a written examination in their specialty field, demonstrate a high level of substantial involvement in the specialty area, fulfill ongoing education requirements and be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.
All attorneys licensed to practice law in Ohio must have graduated from an accredited law school, passed an intensive examination, and attended continuing legal education courses as required by the Supreme Court of Ohio. Some attorneys who devote a large part of their practice to a particular area of the law may choose to go beyond these requirements to earn specialty certification. This means that they have:
- Demonstrated substantial and continuing involvement in a particular field of law, meaning they must devote at least 25 percent of their practice to an area of law;
- Submitted five individual references attesting to their competency in the specialty field;
- Earned a minimum of 36 hours of intermediate or advanced continuing legal education credits in the specialty area during the past three years as part of the continuing legal education credits required of all attorneys;
- Remained in good standing with the Supreme Court of Ohio; and
- Proven financial responsibility by maintaining minimum professional liability insurance coverage.
Basically a Cincinnati Ohio workers compensation specialist attorney has demonstrated special competence in the area of Ohio Workers compensation law. There are only approximately 23 attorneys in the Cincinnati area listed as specialists.
An attorney may also focus and have significant experience in several other areas of law. But they may not designate themselves as a specialist as there are only 8 areas of law such as trust, property , family law etc that this is permitted in Ohio.
I was lucky enough to mentor under a fantastic personal injury car accident lawyer as well as his partner who handled workers compensation and social security disability. So those are the three areas of law that I have dedicated the last 28 years to.
In fact I have written and made a video on how these three area of law can interconnect. If you are hurt at work you may have three sources of compensation for your injury . Watch this video to make sure you get all the compensation you deserve.
So before hiring a cincinnati workers compensation attorney ask the if they are certified as a specialist in Ohio workers compensation.
Call me today for free at 1-800-447-6549 to get the help you need to get the compensation you deserve.

Cincinnati Car Accident Attorney tells How He Determines what yout injury case is worth
If you have sufferred a personal injury the whole goal of a car accident attorney is to get you money compensation to make up for the harm caused by your injury. Many cases are settled out of Court. Some cases get filed into Court and get settled and some cases actually go to a jury trial.
So its important to know what your case is worth in your area since the most important thing in determining the value is what is a jury in your area likely would place on your injury. If the insurance company comes close to that amount your case should settle. The best any accident attorney can do is come up with a range. Many things are factored into this. First and foremost is the injury clearly the legal fault of another. If it is you go to the next step and detemine what is the injury and is it clear that the defendant’s fault/negligence was the cause of the injury. Sometimes the injuries are disputed. So the case is going to be worth more if there is a clear injury rather than one that is unclear.
One thing that factors into the equation is how much damage was there to one or both of the cars involved. Even though it is possible to sustain a significant injury with minimal car damage it is not easy to win the jury or the insurance company heart in that case.
Then of course what was the injury. Did you require back surgery? Do you have permanent limitations. How much are the economic losses. How much are and will be your medical bills. How have you life activities been changes. From this information an experienced car accident injury attoreny can give you a fair approximation of what your case is worth.
One more very important thing. Do you have an attorney representing you that is an experienced accident attorney that has gone to many trials in the past. There is an insurance company study that shows you are likely to end up more than if you were represented by an accident injury attorney than if you are not.

The recall of the sudden unintended acceleration of the Lexus 2007 es 350 was done in the latter part of 2007. Here is a summary of the recall. Essentially the all weather floor mats could catch the gas pedal so it would stay in acceleration mode.
CERTAIN ALL WEATHER FLOOR MATS (AWFM) SPECIFICALLY SOLD AS AN OPTIONAL ACCESSORY FOR USE ON THE 2007 AND 2008 MODEL YEAR LEXUS ES350 AND TOYOTA CAMRY VEHICLES. THE AWFM INCLUDES TWO GROMMET HOLES AND RETAINING HOOKS (CLIPS) TO SECURE THE MAT TO THE VEHICLE’S CARPET. IF THE AWFM IS NOT SECURED BY ITSELF OR IF IT IS PLACED ON TOP OF AN EXISTING CARPETING FLOOR MAT, THE MAT COULD MOVE FORWARD DURING THE VEHICLE USAGE AND IT MAY INTERFERE WITH THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL.
THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL MAY TEMPORARILY BECOME STUCK IN A PARTIALLY DEPRESSED POSITION WHEN RETURNING TO THE IDLE POSITION. IF THIS CONDITION OCCURS, IT MAY INCREASE THE POSSIBILITY OF A CRASH.
TOYOTA WILL NOTIFY OWNERS OF ALL 2007 AND 2008 LEXUS ES350 AND TOYOTA CAMRY VEHICLES ABOUT THE RECALL EVEN THOUGH NOT ALL OF THESE OWNERS WILL HAVE PURCHASED THE ALL WEATHER MATS. IF THE OWNER HAD NOT PURCHASED THE MATS, THEY ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THE RECALL. THIS LETTER WILL ADVISE OWNERS WHEN REPLACEMENT MATS WILL BE AVAILABLE OR HOW TO RETURN THE ALL WEATHER FLOOR MAT SET TO OBTAIN A REFUND. A SECOND LETTER WILL BE SENT AFTER MATS ARE AVAILABLE REQUESTING OWNERS TO RETURN THEIR MATS TO A LEXUS OR TOYOTA DEALER FOR EXCHANGE OF THE DRIVER’S SIDE MAT. THE FIRST LETTER IS EXPECTED TO BE SENT DURING EARLY OCTOBER 2007 AND THE SECOND IN LATE NOVEMBER 2007. OWNERS.
Here is what it lookes like. Toyota mat car accident problem

Cincinnati Car Accident Attorney talks about Toyota recalls and Why be Concerned
In case you missed it Toyota has allegations of unintended acceleration against many of its car models. This has led to actual recalls by Toyota. The first issue is that the gas pedal was getting caught on the floor mat and not returning.
However there have been cases reported where the gas pedal was not stuck on the mat but was actually going fully depressed without anyone stepping on the pedal. There has been no actual recall for that reason as of yet, as Toyota has not admitted this is a problem Here is the story on the mat recall. This information is taken directly from the Toyota website.
2007 – 2010 Camry
2005 – 2010 Avalon
2004 – 2009 Prius
2005 – 2010 Tacoma
2007 – 2010 Tundra
2008 – 2010 Highlander
2009 – 2010 Corolla
2009 – 2010 Venza
2009 – 2010 Matrix
2006 – 2010 IS 250
2006 – 2010 IS 350
2007 – 2010 ES 350
There is the potential for an unsecured or incompatible driver’s floor mat to interfere with, or entrap, the accelerator pedal in the worst case, in the wide-open position. A vehicle with an entrapped accelerator pedal may be difficult to control and/or stop.
Vehicles with any genuine Toyota or Lexus accessory all-weather floor mat will be provided with newly-designed replacement driver- and front passenger-side all-weather floor mats.
Are the all-weather floor mats being replaced in involved vehicles?
Yes. Toyota will be replacing the front driver and passenger-side floor mats.
Yes, Toyota is recalling the old style floor mat as part of this recall to completely remove them from the market. At some point in time, in the future, these mats will be recycled into other products such as road surfaces. Toyota has not completed the details of the recycling actions.
