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 for...Read more »

Luckily, your daughter did not put the car in drive, and from your post there does not seem to be anything further that happened after you got out of your vehicle and put in the cruiser. There is no claim here.
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 animal was...Read 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...Read more »

If you do not have an attorney, I strongly recommend consulting with one prior to to trial. If there is not a doctor's deposition that testifies about the fall and the injuries it caused, there may be an issue showing what you need to in order to have your claim and the conditions you are seeking...Read more »

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.
Himself like he would be on it. 10 months has passed I've never met him. I have no idea what's going on with the case. When I call a paralegal answers. I feel something isn't right. I've waited 15 days for a return call just to be the paralegal again.
Yes. But, talk to your lawyer. See what’s happening on his end. Your attorney had most likely been dealing with insurance companies, doctors, etc. express your concerns. Ask him to explain what’s going on, you may be happy with the answer. You may not.
I'm sorry to hear about your accident. I would consult with an attorney in your area. A forum like this would not be a good place to discuss intricate issues of liability that may become public by nature of the website where you are asking the question.
My boyfriend was passenger in a car accident while being a minor. Lots of medical bills and injuries. His father settled a claim for a few grand that went to my boyfriend, and towards some of the bills. Suddenly thousands of other dollars in bills are coming in, and his father is trying to tell him... Read more »
Your boyfriend may be able to still make his own claim against the driver that caused the collision, but, that means the insurance company would then sue his father to recoup the settlement that he entered into on your boyfriend’s behalf. It’s not guaranteed that he may have this option...Read more »
They may, depending on the evidence that you present to them. An insurance company will look for any reason to devalue your claim, so it is worthwhile to at least consult with an attorney who practices personal injury to go over the value of your claim, because you may leave a lot of money on the...Read more »

There are strict burdens of proof for criminal charges that a prosecutor must meet in order to get a conviction. If you have video evidence that you are not at fault for the collision, i would hire an attorney to fight the charge.
You will also have a civil claim against the driver of the...Read more »
