2 serious motorcycle accident injuries to be aware of

If you have never experienced a motorcycle accident in the Beechwood area before, you may not realize just how serious the injuries can be. Not all falls and collisions lead to minor scrapes and bruises. Many motorcycle accidents end with riders and their passengers sustaining serious and catastrophic injuries. Some people who suffer critical injuries die from complications. 

Rugby concussions pose legal worries

Workplace and highway accidents are not the only cause of catastrophic injuries in Ohio. Like professional football, college rugby has sparked concerns about concussions. Kenyon College in Gambier indefinitely suspended its men and women's rugby team as it reviews the program and head injury risks.

Higher traffic deaths have many causes

The rise in Ohio traffic deaths is increasing the likelihood of wrongful death legal actions in this country. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued a report that the number of traffic fatalities in this country increased last year by 5.6 percent to 37,461. This accounted for 102 deaths in this country each day in vehicle crashes.

Truck crash deaths rose last year

Ohio accidents involving large truck may be particularly deadly, especially for occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's report on vehicles crashes for 2016, accordingly, is alarming. The NHTSA found that fatalities from truck accidents rose in 2016.

Stricter electric rules sought for nursing homes

Advocates for Ohio nursing home residents are seeking lessons from the tragic death of 11 nursing home residents in Florida during Hurricane Irma after the facility lost power. To protect residents and prevent nursing home neglect and abuse, advocates are seeking tougher nursing home requirements.

Suing for wrongful death in Ohio

If you have experienced the death of a loved one in the wake of an accident, suing may not be the first thing on your mind. Even during this difficult time, it is important to understand the legal options before you, including the possibility of a wrongful death action.
