Dedicated Shaker Heights attorney helps clients injured in car crashes
When determining who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident, Ohio uses a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault. In the event that you are determined to have been 50-percent at fault or more, you lose the right to collect any damages whatsoever. With almost 30 years of experience, I know the rules of the road and can help you file your claim and take steps towards getting you compensation for your injuries.
Skilled medical malpractice attorney represents injured patients
Medical malpractice cases involving injuries resulting from misdiagnoses, medication errors and others can be difficult to prove and typically require expert testimony. I will aim to help you recover medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. In serious cases, you may also be entitled to damages for loss of employment opportunity as well as the loss of enjoyment of life.
Knowledgeable attorney handles premises liability cases
When a residential or commercial property owner does not take proper steps to ensure the safety of their premises, the resulting hazardous conditions can cause serious injuries. If you have been hurt in a slip and fall accident or involved in some other premises liability matter, we will work with you to prove negligence on the part of the property owner and advocate for your right to adequate compensation. We also handle premises liability claims and fight for the full financial recovery of clients injured by dog bites.
Compassionate attorney advocates for clients in wrongful death actions
In Ohio, the family of a deceased relative can potentially sue the party responsible for their loved one’s wrongful death. These cases can be intricate and involve claims such as medical malpractice, defective medical products, drug liability matters and nursing home abuse. I help surviving family members navigate the legal complexities so that they can receive compensation for funeral expenses, the loss of care, companionship, prospective income and other costs.
