Claims and lawsuits for personal injury require medical documentation, so your records would be admitted to show your condition after the accident. The at-fault party/company/insurance company may try to use evidence contained in those records to their advantage, if there is information that would...View More
I hope your daughter is doing OK. As long as it was determined that the other driver was liable for the accident, it should cover the vehicle. The insurance may try to fight you on this due to her being an unlicensed driver, but as long as that did not cause the collision, it should be...View More
The statute of limitations for Ohio Workers' compensation claims depends somewhat on when the last activity was on the claim. You should contact a licensed attorney to discuss some specifics and they can give you a better idea of whether the claim is still active or barred due to inactivity.
Depending on the time frame of the denial, you may be able to appeal the denial to the industrial commission. I would speak quickly with a Workers' Compensation attorney (there are many), to discuss your options. You could use personal insurance, however it can muddy the waters quite a bit...View More

My hunting dog went onto another property and the owner shot and killed him and is saying he was attacking their cat, but can't/ won't prove that he was. Filed a report and the cops told me there's nothing i can do.
I'm sorry to hear about your hunting dog. However, in this instance, if your animal went on to another's property, it is considered a trespass. Furthermore, under Ohio law, owners of dogs are strictly liable for any actions of their animal that leads to the injury of another. If that...View More
Usually, no. Typically a lawsuit only comes if you cannot resolve it with the insurance company. Filing a lawsuit costs money and if you can resolve it without incurring those costs you are in a better position.
But, your circumstances may be different based on your timing. Contact a...View More

If you do not have an attorney, I strongly recommend consulting with one prior to to trial.

For what it's worth, depending on what happened, you may be entitled to a Workers' Compensation claim for some of your injuries. I would contact a Workers' Compensation attorney for the circumstances regarding the forklift incident and headbutting incident.
