The Ohio Innocence Project Celebrates Exoneration of Evin King

Last week, the Ohio Innocence Project helped vacated the conviction of Evin King, a man who has spent the last 23 years of his life in prison for a murder he did not commit.

Victim of medical malpractice? Time may be of the essence

Countless individuals over the years have suffered serious health issues because of the negligence of a medical professional and/or facility.

In some cases, the actual medical problem goes undiscovered entirely. Regardless of the circumstances, negligent treatment can cause you to suffer both emotionally and financially.

Don't Believe the Myth: Malpractice Rates Are Not Going Up

"The high costs of healthcare and malpractice premiums are a result of frivolous lawsuits filed against us."

This is a direct result of the "tort reform" effort that has rendered it extremely difficult to justify bringing a medical claim against a doctor, especially if the injured patient has not suffered a permanent, disabling, and/or catastrophic injury. Despite consistently limiting a patient's access to justice in the courts his or her injuries, the health insurance industry continues to point the finger at lawsuits as being the problem.
