As a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer I really enjoy my presence on facebook. If you have seen any of my posts or pages I hope in some way they have either educated you , informed you or at least made you smile.
My first experience was with my personal page for Tony Castelli A lot of that page is anything that happens to interest me . You will also see a lot of youtube videos. There are some really quirky ones like James Brown duet with Pavorati.
Then I created a business page or what used to be called a fan page. This focuses on the fact that I am a Cincinnati personal injury accident lawyer
The actual url for that page is http://www.facebook.com/cincinnati.injuryattorney On that page I focus more on legal issues that face car accident and other personal injury victims. I try to give some educational information as well as provide some limited information about myself. I try not to beat people over the head with I’m a lawyer and you should hire me. I try to educate and inform . But I surely want you to know that I’m happy to answer any questions in my area of personal injury law. And if it’s not my area I’m glad to point you in the right direction.
The Ohio Motorcycle safety awarenesss and injury help of Ohio group is a page I really enjoy. I focus on motorcycle safety tips. With so many resources on the internet, especially you tube, it’s not that hard to provide some content that directly relates to motorcycle safety. Plus I can keep in touch with the motorcycle community where I have made so many friends from Jimmy Kay to the Chrome Divas and everyone in between . I only wish I had more time to spend creating content.
My latest venture is a facebook page for my radio show Cincinnati Biker Life. It was a lot of fun to create a welcome page for Cincinnati Biker Life where you can actually go and internet stream Cincinnati Biker Life live The actual url for Cincinnati Biker Life is http://www.facebook.com/CincinnatiBikerLife
All my listeners are welcome to come and post about their events, rides , experience, questions , requests. In fact it’s not limited to listeners. Anyone with something connected to the Greater Cincinnati motorcycle community is welcome to post . This radio show has been so enjoyable because of the many guests I have met since starting the show . Everyone has been an absolute joy to know and interview on Cincinnati Biker Life Radio.
So yes I’m a bit of a facebook junkie. And certainly an internet junkie. There is just so much information to exchange. I’ve met so may unique people. Sometimes the internet can be a bit removed from the real person But with acquaintances coming on Cincinnati biker life, with a handshake or a hug they soon are counted by me as a friend. I hope they see me the same way.
Thank you to everyone one of my facebook friends and the many folks that have joined my group or liked one of my facebook pages. I wish I could get to know each of you a little better. I invite you to comment or suggest how I can make the experience better for you.

Cincinnati Car Truck Motorcycle Accident news and commentary is to give you the inside legal look that is not normally reported in the press. Hopefully it will answer some of your questions left unanswered by the original article. If not I welcome you to call me to get educated on the law.
Here is a link to a case involving a wrongful death. The man was sentenced to jail for negligently driving and killing anoter human being. But what happened to the family of the deceased. This is called a wrongful death in civil law and the personal representative should make a claim against the insurance proceeds and the personal assets of the negligent driver if there are any. Many time insurance will fight you about the value of a life. They are at times so crass as to suggest there should be no award as it will not bring the deceased back. This is ludicrous, but time and again I had to fight big insurance to help a widow get financially compensated so she could support herself and/or help raise her children.

Personal injury pain and suffering calculator even by the best personal injury lawyer is both science and art. By science I mean the experience of a good personal injury lawyer that has many settlements to their credit, has researched many settlements, and gone to trial on many cases.
But no matter how similar your case may be to ones that I have resolved there is always a difference. You make all the difference in the world. There are many factors about you, and how you have dealt with your injury that can increase or decrease the value of your settlement
The second wild card is the jury . Every jury is different. Some may be more disposed to awarding more money others less. Most cases do not go to a jury. But the ultimate personal injury pain and suffering settlement calculator is the potential jury. Each side needs to ask what would a jury award in this type of case.
An experienced personal injury trial lawyer should be able to guide you on a low end and high end range. The real question is how much money is going to go into your pocket at the end of the day after your bills, case expenses, and attorney fees have been paid. Given the amount of money your trial may cost, in many cases I work up the case and push it close to trial. But then advise settlement because I strongly believe I can put more money in your pocket that way, given the expenses of a full blown trial.
Some clients make one of two mistakes in thinking about the value of their case. Watch this video to learn what the two biggest mistakes on personal injury accident settlement worth.

Do you know what to do if your child was injured in a car accident caused by the fault of you neighbor’s child?
This scenario is played out over and over again. Your child is coming home from a school dance and the driver causes an auto accident and your child is injured. Or your child is going to the movie on Saturday night and their boyfriend from school is driving and because of inattention causes a car crash causing your child an injury. Or your child gets a dog bite from a neighbor’s dog.
There are many other circumstances were you child could be injured or heaven forbid even caused death. It’s one thing to pick up the pieces after an injury or death. But possibly you could intervene ahead of the injury and prevent it from happening. Here’s a child safety resource link I created on protecting your child from injury.
I did not recreate the wheel with this page. But as an email subscriber to www.safekids.com and www.safekids.org I thought I would share their resources with you. They touch on just about every aspect of where your child can be injured and how to prevent it.
There’s resources on preventing burn injury, auto injury, water injury , fire safety, sports injury, just about any thing you can think of and more importantly those things you don’t think of. There are many places and many ways apparently supposedly safe toys or products can cause injury.It’s daunting to realize how many ways your child could be injured . I suggest you read an article every week at least.
If you feel you need help with a child injury or have questions I welcome you to call me Anthony Castelli a Cincinnati child injury lawyer at 1-800-447-6549 for a no cost consultation.
