Texting and Driving a Deadly Epidemic in Cincinnati

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

 Texting and Driving is becoming a deadly epidemic.  This inattention to the road is causing car accidents all over the nation. I submit it’s becoming an epidemic in Cincinnati. How many times have you seen someone texting and driving? 

This is not meant to minimize the use of cell phones while driving. This is as dangerous. Especiallly the dialing piece . Again your eyes  are taken off the road. It only takes a split second for you to be killed or seriously injured, or worse kill or injure someone else.

 Just in the news was the sad story of David Muslovski who had been hit by a 19-year-old driver who was texting while driving.
David Muslovski suffered a massive hemorrhage from severely fractured pelvis and lacerated liver. He was dead in two hours. A life needlessly snuffed out and two families forever changed.

Emergency room personal have noticed the increase in serious injury from driving and texting. The statisics are sobering. The NHTSB says 28% of all traffic crashes are caused by drivers who are using cell phones or texting while behind the wheel, which is 1.6 million accidents per year.  And texters are keeping their eyes off the road for close to 5 seconds. To put that into perspective that’s the length of a football field at 55 mph.

That’s why I created a public service video about texting and driving .Pleas click on the link. There’s no blood and guts , just a plea to stop.

If you are injured in a car accident by someone talking on a cell phone or texting you can call me to help you get the compensation you deserve 1-800-447-6549

What a Cincinnati Attorney and Jerry Rice Have in Common

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

 Awhile back you may have seen a video that I did about what motivates me to fight hard for my clients.  (Confession of a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer. ) The bottom line was that I have a fear of failure. I know I’m not the smartest person out there, so my goal is to outwork and outprepare my opposition so my client’s have the best chance of winning their case. Face it, any trial lawyer that’s been practicing 29 years and has had thousands of cases is not going to win every time. But if this happens to you , you don’t want to look back and say you did not give 100%. The only thing that keeps from haunting you is the knowledge that you fought with all your heart and prepared with all your strength.

 The confidence to go into a courtroom and do battle comes from hard work and preparation, weeks and months prior to the actual trial.  So I was elated to watch Jerry Rice’s speech he gave uopn his induction in the football Hall of Fame. He said, ” I wasn’t the fastest reciever, but the reason no one caught me from behind is because I ran scared. That old fear of failure again.”

Watch Jerry’s speech.
