Press Release: Cincinnati, Ohio July 27,2012 Insurance settlements for injured children can drag on for ever sometimes. However this does not have to be the case. Recently I settled a car accident injury for a young girl that suffered a chip fracture of her cervical (neck )vertebra. In addition she had a compression fracture in her back and a scar over her left eye. Unfortunately there was no medical insurance to cover her bills , especially the large ones from Cincinnati Children's Hospitals. You may be interested in how we were able to get an insurance settlement within a year.

The 2012 Cincinnati walk for Autism at Coney Island was a huge success. As a formal mental health worker at Longview and as a social worker for 241-kids I have been involved with many autistic children. 30 years ago the programs were not very effective. But now there are some great programs that show results.
Teenage driving can end in a catastrophe. But is does not have to be that way. Even though the statistics are sobering. There are things you can do to heighten the awareness of your child auto driver.
We all know about the driver's education classes. The classes and seminars that some schools give. but this is where you should do more as a parent. Sure your child will be resistant at first. But your goal is to prevent their injury or injuring someone else seriously in a car accident. Be firm.
Do you know what to do if your child was injured in a car accident caused by the fault of you neighbor's child?
This scenario is played out over and over again. Your child is coming home from a school dance and the driver causes an auto accident and your child is injured. Or your child is going to the movie on Saturday night and their boyfriend from school is driving and because of inattention causes a car crash causing your child an injury. Or your child gets a dog bite from a neighbor's dog.
Parents please don't host a party where you let children drink. You could kill a child. You could kill others through your neglect if the person gets in the car and hurts others. Some parents think it's fashionable to let their kids drink at home with them . Some parents even let kids other than their own drink at their home. You could be civilly and criminally responsible .

It's hard to know what is safe sometimes. There are many things that we just do not realize that can cause our child injury if not death. It's a scary world out there. If you are my age you hitch hiked up and down your hometown, not anymore.
There is nothing worse than your child suffering an injury. This is especially true when it could have and should have been prevented. The American association for justice has recently commented on toy hazards that manufacturers could have prevented.
"Unforeseen hazards are still finding their way into toys despite recently improved safety standards, illustrating the need for a strong civil justice system that protects children and holds negligent manufacturers accountable, according to a new report released today by the American Association for Justice "
