GBM Law successfully resolved the case of a young man who was involved in a rear-end accident on US 23. Our client was stopped in morning traffic on his way to work when he was hit. The commercial driver behind him, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, didn’t see the stopped traffic. Our client had multiple injuries, but most notably a concussion with lasting post-concussive impairments. We worked with our client’s medical providers to present clear present and future impairment evidence to establish the case.

Separate and apart from her workers compensation case, GBM Law successfully held the employer of a forklift driver accountable for the injuries their employee inflicted upon our client who was working for a different company inside the same warehouse at the time of her injury.

GBM Law attorney J. Scott Bowman worked tirelessly for more than a year to prove that a trash truck was stopped improperly on a country road and failed to provide adequate warnings to those traveling behind them of their presence.

A disabled man living in a rental property was exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide. He ultimately succumbed to his injuries six months later. His family retained GBM Law to get answers.
GBM Law’s Sydney McLafferty hired a heating and plumbing specialist to inspect the rental property within days of the carbon monoxide leak. The inspection showed that despite hazard warnings, the furnace had been turned back on by maintenance staff. A dislodged vent filled the rental property with high levels of carbon monoxide. At times feeling like David versus Goliath, GBM Law litigated countless motions filed by the nine (9) lawyers representing the opposing parties. The defendants knew GBM would take the case to trial and ultimately agreed to settle for a combined settlement of $765,000 just before the trial date.

GBM Law and Sydney McLafferty worked quickly and diligently with the medical providers to obtain the necessary documentation to overcome Ohio’s statutory cap on damages.

Due to a tragic incident in Madison County, Ohio, a baby sustained long term injuries while in-utero.

At trial, GBM Law attorneys successfully argued to a jury that the spouse should be compensated for her losses resulting from the crash in addition to those sustained by her husband. The jury agreed and awarded her the highest amount recorded for such an award in the county.
