Unless you are a licensed medical doctor, nurse, practitioner or employee of another related medical field, you may not be aware of some of the jargon used in the industry. Like most Ohio residents, you're probably most familiar with terms, such as "code blue" or other medical phrases most adults have heard at some time in their lives.
It is a nightmare scenario for Ohio drivers who are in a truck accident with a large semi-truck. These vehicles are heavy, travel fast and can cause so much damage that any trucking accident can result in serious injuries and fatalities for those who are unfortunate enough to be involved. Often, these accidents involve multiple vehicles. As the case is investigated, those who were impacted should think about the future and consider a legal filing for compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses.
Given the number of semi-trucks that are on the road in Ohio, they are an understandable concern to people who share the road with them. Their size, speed and the distances they travel make them a significant risk for being in a crash. Researchers and government agencies keep track of truck accidents to gauge how and why they happen in the hopes that there are steps to take to reduce their number and make people safer. A worrisome trend in the latest truck accident numbers available says that there was a rise in fatal truck accidents from 2016 to 2017.
Distracted driving is a problem in Ohio and across the entire country. It is the cause for many accidents with injuries and fatalities regardless of what type of vehicle the distracted driver is operating. When it is a large truck, however, it is of greater importance that semi-truck drivers refrain from distracted driving. Truck companies are cognizant of the trend and are entreating their drivers from being a distracted truck driver. Unfortunately, it continues to happen. Those who have suffered injuries or lost a loved one in a truck accident because of an apparent distracted trucker should know the steps to file a lawsuit for compensation.
Asbestos is widely known to be a potentially dangerous substance that can cause illness for Ohioans and people across the nation who are exposed to it. For many, the use of asbestos led to exposure during the time before it was understood to cause such illnesses as mesothelioma, asbestosis and other serious health problems. Once it was discovered to be dangerous, various state and federal government entities were trusted to monitor it. This is particularly important in schools since it was once used in these buildings regularly. If there is a failure in that responsibility, those who were exposed and became ill could have evidence to file a lawsuit.
You or your family member might be one of many people in Ohio or surrounding regions who have contracted a rare form of lung cancer.
