What should I do if I am injured at Cedar Point?

If you or someone you love is injured while at Cedar Point amusement park, there are some important steps you must take. There are many ways you can get injured while at Cedar Point, but the most prominent is by being injured on a roller coaster or attraction and by slipping/tripping and falling. As soon as you are injured, it is important to get treated for your injuries. Once this is done and you feel safe and comfortable, notify the nearest park employee and fill out an incident report. Be sure to obtain all relevant documentation, such as photos of your injuries, photos of the faulty attraction/roller coaster/area, witness information, and names of park employees who were involved. Once you have done all of this, it is imperative for you to call an experienced personal injury attorney. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we have to protect the rights of the injured since 1992 and will do everything we can to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Can I file a lawsuit for food poisoning?

Yes. If you have become ill from consuming food, you may have a claim. Food poisoning is commonly caused by human error and negligence. Because of this, those responsible must be held accountable for your illness. If you are able, be sure to keep a portion of the food. This will be essential in the process because it can be tested to prove it caused the illness. If you have become ill from consuming food, contact us and we will conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that you are compensated for your medical bills and all related damages.

Can I file a lawsuit for getting hit by a car while riding my bike?

Yes. Vehicles have a duty to yield to pedestrians, even if they are on a bicycle. Often times, those driving vehicles that strike bicyclists are either distracted or impaired at the time. These accidents can often cause serious injuries, and sometimes be fatal. If you or someone you love was hit by a car while riding your bike, contact an attorney as soon as possible, so that your rights are protected.

Is it illegal to ride your bicycle while impaired by alcohol?

Yes. In the state of Ohio, if your blood alcohol content is .08% or greater, it is considered illegal to operate a vehicle. Bicycles do fall under the category of vehicle, and you could be stopped and charged for riding your bike while impaired.

Why are pedestrians commonly hit by vehicles, even while in the crosswalk?

When a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, the injuries are usually severe, and many cases result in death. Sometimes pedestrians are even hit while in the crosswalk. The only explanation for this is driving negligence, usually caused by distractions or impairment. Drivers could be on their cellphone, eating or drinking, reaching for something they have dropped, or distracted by something else, which causes them to not keep their eyes on the road at all times. Another possibility is that the driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, construing their judgment. While pedestrians have the right of way, it is not okay to “J-walk” or cross the street without using the crosswalk. By doing this, you are putting yourself and drivers on the road at risk.

What should I do if I get into a boating accident?

Whether you are driving your own boat or a passenger in a boat being operated by someone you know or a stranger, there are some important steps you must take when getting into a boating accident. These accidents are more common than people think and can result in serious injuries. Boating accidents can usually be treated the same as when you are involved in a car accident. Get treated for your injuries, exchange relevant information, and file a claim with insurance companies. But it is much different if you are a passenger in a boat being driven by an employee. If you are involved in this type of boating accident, you need to file an incident report with the company, gather the driver’s and any witnesses’ information, take photos as evidence, and contact an attorney.

Should I call an attorney after getting in a motorcycle accident?

Accidents involving motorcycles are commonly the most serious and fatal of any type of accident. Often times, insurance companies will refuse to fairly compensate motorcycle accident victims and offer low and unfair amounts of money as a settlement. Contacting an experienced motorcycle accident attorney is essential to receiving the compensation you are entitled to.

Can I sue a babysitter/daycare for negligent child supervision?

Yes. When someone takes on the responsibility to watch over your child, whether it be a babysitter, school, or daycare center, they have a “duty of care”. If they do not follow through with this duty and your child is injured, they are held responsible. This means they could be required to pay for any medical expenses (present and future) and resulting damages. Even if your child’s behavior contributed to their injury, it is possible that they are too young to be reasonably held responsible for their behavior related to the injury.

I crashed my four-wheeler/ATV because of faulty manufacturing. What should I do now?

If your four-wheeler/ATV accident was a result of faulty manufacturing or a recalled product, it is essential for you to contact an attorney. These cases can often become very difficult and involve a lot of investigation and legal proceedings, so it is important to retain legal counsel from someone who is experienced.

Who is responsible for a train accident?

Trains are a common form of everyday transportation for many people. Although accidents involving trains are infrequent, they can be devastating when they occur. Depending on the type of train you are traveling on, the owners and operators of the train can be responsible for any accident. If you have been involved in a train accident, contact Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers as soon as possible. We have been protecting the rights of train accident victims since 1992.
