Burn attacks: more than disfigurement

Burn injuries can range from mild stovetop accidents to devastating and debilitating measures that can alter an individual's life forever. Many burn victims experienced injuries as a result of explosions, exposure to dangerous chemicals or house fires; others have endured physical attacks that left them disfigured and even clinging to life. In Ohio, lawmakers have recently changed the details of laws surrounding fire-related attacks by stiffening the legal penalties.

Strict liability for attacks from dogs, vaccinated or not

Dog bite incidents are always unfortunate and sometimes tragic. The victim of a bite can be seriously injured in an attack. A dog’s owner is almost always very concerned and sometimes defensive. Occasionally, dogs attack intruders. Other times, they attack unsuspecting and undeserving individuals. In Ohio, the likelihood of an attack from a dog increases if that dog is at risk for rabies.

Work-related injuries and workers' rights

Every year, thousands of individuals experience catastrophic -- and even fatal -- injuries while at work. Many of these injuries involve the loss of a limb, disfigurement and the loss of a bodily organ system, and can result in an employee's permanent disability to work. Some injuries even require around-the-clock care and can hinder daily activities and general quality of life. In Ohio, there are injury and illness plans that help protect employees from such accidents and the overwhelming hospital bills that can occur as a result. However, it is important that workers understand their rights to better understand possible solutions in the case an accident does occur.
