Be Careful on Ohio Roads in October – It’s Deer Season: October, November and December are the most likely months for Ohio Motorists to encounter a deer on the roadway.  Unfortunately, many deer strikes leave the motorist injured, with property damage and no insurance coverage.   The only coverage that may help when you strike a deer is comprehensive/collision (to repair your automobile - less your deductible) and medical payments which can pay medical bills, co-pays and deductibles not covered by private health insurance.

Deer strikes can cause serious injuries so aside from the out of pocket costs of striking a deer, Ohio motorists are smart to follow a few rules to help reduce your chance of striking a deer on the roadway or sustaining injuries when encountering an animal in the roadway.

- Be aware of your surroundings and drive defensively at all times;

- pay attention to signs warning of the presence of deer in an area;

- pay particular attention around sunset and sunrise;

- do not overreact if you encounter a deer (or other animal) in the roadway.   Often times motorists swerve out of their lane and are seriously injured by colliding with other vehicles, trees, buildings, etc.   It is often the best course of action to brake hard, sound your horn with multiple short blasts and stay in your lane even if that means hitting the animal; and

-  if you hit an animal on the roadway, be cautious about approoaching the animal after the collision.   Often times motorists want to check a deer or other animal on the roadway if they strike it, that is human nature.   But a wounded animal is a dangerous animal and if you are on the roadway you are at risk of being hit by another motorist.   It is best to pull your vehicle safely off the road and call for help if you need it.

Below is a link to an article discussing the frequency of deer strikes state by state and some interesting facts about the costs of deer strikes from the insurance industry.   Be careful on the roadways this Fall.

How Does the Social Security Administration Define “Disability?” Social Security defines disability differently than other programs such as Veterans Affairs and Workers’ Compensation.  Social Security defines disability as:

1. a person’s inability to work,
2. as a result of one or more medical condition, either physical or mental,
3. that has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

In order for Social Security to consider a medical condition for the purposes of disability determination, the medical condition must be a medically determinable impairment.  A medically determinable impairment is a physical or mental impairment that results from anatomical, physiological or psychological conditions which can be detected by medically acceptable clinical and laboratory diagnostic techniques.  A person’s complaint of symptoms is not enough, Social Security requires medical evidence consisting of sign, symptoms and laboratory findings.

Unlike Veterans Affairs and Workers’ Compensation definition of disability, benefits for Social Security disability are not paid for partial disability.  Social Security does not pay benefits for medical conditions that are expected to last less than one year.

Our attorneys and legal staff can review your information to determine if you qualify you for Social Security disability.  Please feel free to contact our office today for a free consultation appointment.

Wear the Helmet, Protect the Brain: In May, 11-year-old Cleveland resident Jeffrey Hussey, Jr. went down the street to ride bikes with a friend. Minutes later he rode out into the street and into a sports utility vehicle, smashing the driver side window and door. The injury sent him to the hospital near death with a cracked skull and a badly bruised brain. The fifth grader was not wearing a helmet.

In summer and every season of the year, there is always a temptation to ride a bike or a motorcycle without a properly fitted helmet. Excuses come in the form of it takes too long, it is uncomfortable, I cannot see right. But there are no excuses for not wearing a simply formed piece of foam, rubber and plastic that can save your life.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 16 percent of pedalcyclists injured in vehicle accidents were age 14 or younger. Take note of these tips to keep your child safe on their bicycle:

- Make sure your child wears a properly fitted helmet every time they ride.
- Your child should ride a bicycle that fits them and that they can operate comfortably.
- Ensure your child understands the rules of the road and uses hand signals whenever appropriate.
- Teach your child to wear bright colors when cycling and to assume motorists may not see them.

Wearing a helmet when riding a motorcycle, bicycle or even a horse can make the difference between life and death. Stay safe and if you or a loved one is injured, get good legal help.

Jeffrey Hussey Jr. is making a strong recovery. His mother told reporters, [i]f we can at least get to one child and have them wear a helmet, it's going to make the world of difference.

Study on Dangerous Drugs Prescribed for the Elderly: ‘Geography is Destiny’: With age comes physical decline. By age 65, many Americans have one or more prescriptions. A recent study poses serious questions about the safety of medications prescribed to elderly Americans.

In April of this year, Brown University released a study of more than six million Medicare patients that made significant points about medication practices for the elderly in this country:

- Medications like muscle relaxants, sedatives and other drugs react differently in an 80-year old body, leading to the possibility of dangerous side effects or drug interactions. The Brown study found at least one in five elderly Americans is receiving medication identified as risky for their age group.
- Researchers found approximately 21 percent of seniors in the United States were prescribed inappropriate medication in 2009.
- While Ohio seniors were 16 to 20 percent more likely to receive a dangerous prescription, residents of Albany, Georgia were more than 38 percent more inclined to receive a hazardous drug.
- Without demographic difference, women and those with lower socio-economic status more often received dangerous medication.
- The study did not attempt to answer the questions it raised. Study authors suggested prescription discrepancies could be caused by patient expectation and demand, chronic conditions experienced more frequently by women or lack of training with regard to geriatric prescription safety.

If you or an elderly loved one takes one or more medications, check with your healthcare provider about the possibility of dangerous medications or other side effects.

Medication mistakes are a common form of medical malpractice. While medications can be life-saving, they can also lead to disability and death when improperly prescribed. If concerned about unsafe medications, talk to your doctor, and then speak with an attorney with our firm.

Buy Safe, Drive Safe, Stay Safe: Brought to You by the NHTSA - In the past, safety was not one of the top criteria people considered when shopping for a new car, and hearing safety news about your car might have come by accident. In order to provide consumers with information they need, when they need it, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released an app to provide timely, topical information about the car you drive.

The Safer Car app released by NHTSA in March of this year is available free from iTunes. Currently released for the iPhone and iPod Touch, an Android compatible version of the app is under development.

At the same time of the launch of the Safer Car app, NHTSA released an Application Programming Interface (API) to enable developers to integrate data available on the app into other products and mobile services.

Intended to connect consumers and drivers with information important to them, the Safer Car app provides the following:

- By registering your vehicle, you can receive information on safety updates or other headlines about your car. When NHTSA publishes information about a recall, you will know right away.
- When shopping for a car to buy or lease, use the app to compare safety ratings among models or among other cars. Learn about crash test ratings and how they help you drive a safer car.
- Car seats are essential equipment for younger family members. Get information about installing a car seat correctly or find the closest available location to get help with your car seat.

Staying safe begins with the equipment you drive. Keep your car maintained and keep abreast of news about your car with the Safer Car app. And if you are injured in a car accident in Cleveland, always seek experienced legal advice.
