Serious Injuries Archives

Victim of a dog bite? Here’s what you need to know.

Dogs are often friendly, loyal and happy family pets. However, even the best of dogs can bite and, unfortunately, not all dogs are “the best of dogs.” Whether a dog bite is from a friendly pet that had a bad moment or from an animal that always seemed dangerous, it is important to have a basic understanding of the steps to take if injured from a dog bite.

Burn injuries in accidents

You have no doubt seen or heard reports about accidents in Ohio in which a person has experienced burn injuries. The person may even have experienced other types of injuries in addition to burns. These can result from motor vehicle accidents, accidents on a job worksite or something else. All too often, these injuries were preventable, but someone's reckless choices or behavior exposed an innocent person to harm.

What to do after a concussion

A blow to the head in Ohio can result in a concussion. The resulting decrease in neurologic function is usually temporary, and a concussion does not cause structural damage to the brain. Nevertheless, a concussion is still a traumatic brain injury and requires certain responses to help ensure a full recovery. 

How does burn depth relate to degree?

The severity of a burn injury in Ohio depends upon how deeply the damage extends beneath the surface of the skin. In the past, doctors classified burn wounds according to degrees. First-degree burns are the least serious type, involving only the epidermis. Second-degree, third-degree and (according to some scales) fourth-degree burns are more serious. 

Boy's skull fractured following physical assault

Many personal injury cases in Ohio arise from negligence. In other words, someone acts in a way that is irresponsible or fails to do what is necessary, and someone else gets hurt as a result. However, negligence is only one possible reason that personal injuries can occur. They can also arise because of the willful misconduct of others. To put it another way, someone knows that his or her actions could result in harm to others but carries them out anyway. 

What is a spinal cord injury?

If you are like most people in Ohio, you have likely heard references to spinal cord injuries. These may frequently be the result of a motor vehicle accident. It is important to understand that no two spinal cord injuries are generally alike. There is a wide range of variance in the severity of spinal cord injuries and any associating disabilities that may occur.

Reporting gaps for nursing home abuse

Most people in Ohio have either faced the challenge of caring for an aging relative or know someone who has. In many situations, the level of care required necessitates that a person be moved to a nursing home. This decision is rarely made without a lot of deliberation and even hesitation, in part because of concerns that a person could be abused or neglected in the very facility that is supposed to care for them.
