Cincinnati Attorney Prepared to Be Jailed To Support Muscular Dystrophy

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

musculardystrophy  About three weeks ago I got a call out of the  blue that started with: “We want to put you  in jail.” At first I was slightly startled, but  my “guilt ” was lessened when the caller told  me that this was a call to help the Muscular  Dystrophy Asociation with a fundraiser for  disabled children.

Before I get into the discussion about the  fundraiser let me take a moment to explain  Muscular Dystrophy.



What Is Muscular Dystrophy

M.D. is a general term for hereditary diseases that attacks the skeletal muscles and often other organs. muscles. The disorder differ in terms of severity, age of onset and other particulars.

The most common form of muscular dystrophy is Duchenne. It primarily affects boys and is caused by not having dystrophin, a protein that helps maintain the muscle to work properly. Most with this form are unable to walk by age 12 and many end up on a respirator. There are about 400-600 new cases each year in the United States. (1) (2)


What Can You Do To Help Fight Muscular Dystrophy

If you would donate some “bail” money for me every cent goes directly to muscular dystophy to help those afflicted . Contributing to the MD Blue Ash, Ohio lock up is as easy as clicking on this link. MDA Lock Up This is a great charity event where others will also be “locked up” at the Firehouse Grill. They will pick me up on Wednesday, November 6th and take me to jail while I await enough bail to be set free.

You may have been harmed irretrievably with a permanent injury or with the unnecessary death of a loved one. I know that money will never be able to make up for your loss.

Cincinnati Personal Injury Lawyer Law Talk 1 Negligence

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Cincinnati personal injury lawyer law talk will be a blog series on personal injury law of Ohio. I hope to break down some of the statutes and cases that deal with Ohio personal injury accident claims. This is part one in and will focus on an introduction to the law of negligence. That is a term often used int Ohio as do other states have theri own definition, which is probably similar to Ohio personal injury law.

If you were to have a personal injury accident case or be on a jury you would hear the judge explain to the jury what negligence is. Here is an example from an actual case :
The defendants are required to use ordinary care to discover and avoid danger. The plaintiffs claim that the defendants failed to use ordinary care in maintaining, inspecting, and/or repairing a tank car. As discussed above, ordinary care is the care that a reasonably careful person would use under the circumstances. In considering this, you must decide what the facts and circumstances were, then you must decide whether the defendants used ordinary care. If the defendants did not use ordinary care, they were negligent; if the defendants used ordinary care, they were not negligent.”

So negligence is a failure to use the care that a reasonably prudent person would use. In the first instance the party injured , the plaintiff , must be owed a duty by the defendant. For example all car drivers have a duty to operate their car with ordinary care to avoid injuring others. The duty and the standard of care can also be set be the legislature. So if a person violates a statute this can be negligence as a matter of law.

Everyone is familiar with the rear end collision. You are sitting at a red light and someone for whatever reason drives right into the rear of your car. In Ohio this can be a violation of 4511.21 the assured clear distance statute. This occurs if there is a car traveling in the same direction and in the same lane as you and you are visible and the car fails to stop in time to avoid striking you. That person would be negligent . If there negligence caused you a auto accident personal injury then they would be responsible to you to pay for your injuries.
I was injured in a car accident and can’t work is a good phrase to use if you are trying to find information on the steps to take if you have a personal injury. However this series hopes to send the lay person to law school in the very defined area of personal injury accident and injury law. Or if you would like specific questions on Ohio law you can go to my personal injury lawyer web site .
