The birth of a baby should be the happiest moment of a parent’s life. Most of the time, everything goes without complication. However, sometimes injuries can happen during birth, such as undetected infections or failure to do a necessary C-section, which can have severe or even fatal results.
Birth injuries are often preventable with responsible medical care. If you were injured during birth, you likely have a valid claim against the doctors and medical staff involved. Call Schuller Law Firm today to discuss your case and plan next steps.
Burns range in severity, from mild first-degree to devastating third-degree, the latter of which often requires a significant amount of medical care. People with third-degree burns may be permanently disfigured and need ongoing treatments such as skin grafts and physical therapy. Severe burns are often caused by electricity, chemicals, extremely high temperatures, or explosions.
Many burns are preventable with proper safety precautions and well-maintained equipment. When they do occur, it is frequently the result of negligence. If you were burned in a workplace accident or other environment, you might qualify for a claim against the property owners.
Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injury, even in Toledo. Distracted drivers are almost as dangerous as drunk drivers, and either one can change your life in an instant. Though Ohio drivers are required to carry auto insurance, the minimum personal injury coverage is only $50,000 per accident.
Injuries from car accidents can and often do cost far more than $50,000. You can file a suit against multiple parties after a car accident, not just the driver. An experienced attorney like Jim Schuller can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Construction sites around Toledo and anywhere else can be dangerous. Both workers and passersby are at risk of injury from materials carelessly left behind. Other common accidents at construction sites include falling into pits or having items fall on them.

Consumers have a reasonable expectation that the items they buy will be reliable. After all, the government regulates the safety of many products. However, thousands of defective products, from automobile air bags to children’s toys, still make it to market each year.
These unsafe products can cause personal injuries, sometimes very extensive or even fatal. When enough people are injured, it will usually trigger a recall. If you were unlucky enough to own a dangerous and defective product, you might wish to seek compensation through the legal system.
Doctors are human like anyone else, and that means they’re capable of making errors. The difference is that when you’re a doctor, your mistakes can cause serious harm or even death. A second’s delay or a lapse in judgment can have disastrous results.
If you were injured due to a doctor’s mistake, you might qualify for a medical malpractice claim. You deserve compensation for physical pain and emotional suffering. Let Jim Schuller help you determine how to get a fair outcome.
Workplace injuries happen frequently. Injuries obtained in the workplace include hearing loss, head injuries, accidental amputations, and respiratory problems. Specific industries are more prone to workplace injuries than others, such as healthcare, construction, truck driving, and steel work.
Many workplace injuries are preventable if the employer has taken proper safety precautions. However, employers may claim that injuries are the employee’s fault. Call the legal team at The Schuller Law Office today to outline the details of your case and see if you have grounds for a lawsuit.
When someone dies prematurely as a result of an accident or injury, there’s an unfathomable effect on those left behind.

While compensation cannot replace your loved one, it can at least ease some of the financial burdens.
