Woman Killed in Crash I-275 Symmes Township Cincinnati Personal injury Lawyer Discusses Fault

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

A woman was killed in a crash on I-275 in Symmes township on December 10, 2011. As a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer I know some of the issues that will be raised. One thing I know is that the system breaks down totally almost, when it comes to compensating the loved ones of the person killed by wrongful death. This is a death as a result of carelessness.

In the first place money will never make any one whole as it can in an injury or property damage claim. Plus,  juries have literally been brainwashed by the  insurance company to give a monetary value that is inadequate . I think a death caused by the fault of another should be compensated in the millions of dollars. It give value to the deceased and to his family to know their life meant more that some insignificant amount such as 1 -2  million dollars. It’s a slap in the face to the survivors to compensate their loss with just a million or so dollars. What happens when a plane goes down. The value of the plane in the millions of dollars is paid. A life is much more valuable than property. Any good Cincinnati wrongful death lawyer would tell you that or at they should.

Note in the commentary written on the Chanel 12 web site about the fact that seatbelts were not worn. This is of legal significance if this was a front seat passenger. But the real culprit was the driver that negligently changed lanes , crashed into another car and flipped it so that two passengers were thrown from  the vehicle killing Rhonda Ball. Lets focus on the driver not the seatbelt. but I’ve seen it before used a defense and know that a great biomedical engineer can determine if a seat belt would have made any difference. if it would have the front seat passenger may not collect all their damages.

He  has seen this before and can help you if you are faced with a death of a family member or an injury to yourself, or an allegation that your failure to wear your seatbelt was  the cause of your injury.

Wrongful Death Explained – Car Truck Motorcycle Accidents

Monday, April 11th, 2011

 When someone is killed as a result of the fault of another this is termed a wrongful death. I’m talking about civil law not criminal law.  In Ohio under civil law the next of kin are entitled to recover money damages for their loss.

The damages include not only economic loss, but  also loss of care , comfort , guidance , protection , affection instruction , consortium  and the mental anguish suffered as a result of the death. These damages are available to the spouse, children , parents and other next of kin such as brothers, sister and other relatives.

An estate must be opened in probate court and the person that opens the estate , usually the spouse , if there was one , is responsible for recovering the damages on behalf of everyone. I just finished a wrongful death case involving a car going left  of center. I am currently in a law suit on behalf of the family of a motorcylcist that was killed. These cases are devastating to the family and the grief and saddness can be immeasurable.

Their is a duty to measure the loss although money can never make up for the loss. It does serve the ends of justice, can provide some closure, and help the family at least replace the loss of income or services the deceased provided.

 The term wrongful means negligent or failing to act reasonably. Usually when a truck or car fails to follow the rules of the road such as running a stop sign, red light , speeding or going left of center and causes a death in a crash this is a wrongful death case.

Some totally understand suing for property damage , but don’t understand the law suit for the wrongful and preventable loss of life. I certainly understand the underpinning and devote many hours to keeping the family informed about the process so they feel some sense of control about their life.

Here is a blog I did on blog talk radio.  Wrongful Death in Ohio What is a life worth

Cincinnati Accident Attorney Reports on Motorcycle Open House

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

  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.
