CASES OF INTEREST MARCH 2021

AT-FAULT DRIVER CROSSES LEFT OF CENTER, SMASHING INTO OUR CLIENT’S VEHICLE HEAD-ON

Our client was traveling northbound on Jerome Road in Monclova Township, Ohio when another driver came around the bend, traveling at a speed in excess of 40 mph. The driver crossed left of center and hit our client head-on. As a result of the collision, our client’s right tibia and fibula were broken, and he was taken into emergency surgery.

He then underwent an additional procedure requiring a skin graft on his right leg. After he was released from the hospital, he required intensive at-home physical therapy. Our client worked as a material manager for thirty-one years and is now unable to work.

Our office is pursuing a personal injury claim on his behalf.

PATIENT DIES ON THE OPERATING TABLE DUE TO MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Our client’s husband underwent a Watchman Implant (heart) procedure, which was supposed to be a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime and a speedy recovery process. While the procedure was being performed, a mistake occurred which caused the patient to bleed uncontrollably.

While our client’s husband bled to death, eleven specialists attempted to revive him, with efforts lasting well over an hour. The medical team couldn’t control the bleeding, and the patient was pronounced dead on the surgery table.

We are investigating a medical malpractice claim on behalf of her husband’s estate.

EMPLOYEE LOSES FINGER ON THE JOB

While on the job as a plumber at a construction site, our client’s right index finger was crushed when a forklift driver negligently dropped the bucket on his hand. Our client was rushed to the hospital where emergency surgery to save his finger was attempted.

The surgery was unsuccessful and the finger was amputated. Our client is now working at a lesser job paying job because of permanent restrictions. This matter was initially processed under a Worker’s Compensation claim.

Our office is now investigating a personal injury claim.
