What is Dental Malpractice?

Personal Injury

Dental malpractice occurs when the treatment provided by dental health care professionals falls below the acceptable standard of care causing serious personal injuries. Like other areas of professional malpractice, dental malpractice is a form of negligence. Dentists are usually working hard to make sure that their patients are well cared for, but there are far too many mistakes that could have been prevented. In fact, it has been estimated that 1 out of every 7 medical malpractice cases directly involves a dental malpractice issue. A dental healthcare provider is not negligent simply because the intended result was not achieved or because the procedure resulted in an injury. It needs to be shown that the provider actually acted negligently under the circumstances. In a dental malpractice claim, it must be shown that the dental provider fell below what is called “the standard of care.” That is to say, the dental provider failed to act as a reasonable and prudent dental healthcare provider would under the circumstances. In court, this can only be proven through the testimony of dental or medical experts – other providers who do the same or similar procedures. New York Dental Malpractice Attorney, Jordan R.

Grounds for Divorce in Ohio - Sylkatis Law, LLC

A divorce in Ohio is filed when there is typically “fault” by one of the parties and party not at “fault” seeks to end the marriage. A court in Ohio may grant a divorce for the following reasons:
• Willful absence of the adverse party for one year
• Adultery
• Extreme cruelty
• Fraudulent contract
• Any gross neglect of duty
• Habitual drunkenness
• Imprisonment in a correctional institution at the time of filing the complaint
• Procurement of a divorce outside this state by the other party

Additionally, there are two “no-fault” basis for which a court may grant a divorce:
• When the parties have, without interruption for one year, lived separate and apart without cohabitation
• Incompatibility, unless denied by either party

However, whether or not the the court grants the divorce for “fault” or not, in Ohio the party not at “fault” will not get a bigger slice of the marital property.
