OAJ SIDEBAR

JANUARY 19, 2017

“Fair share” subrogation becomes law
Ohio’s new subrogation law went into effect in its entirety on January 1.   The new law says that if your client recovers less than full damages, the subrogee’s reimbursement is reduced in proportion to the diminished recovery.  Be aware that the statute says the new law applies to “any policy, contract, or agreement that is delivered, issued for delivery, or renewed on or after January 1, 2017.”

Workers’ comp for firefighters with cancer
A new law establishing a presumption that a firefighter diagnosed with cancer has incurred the disease in the course of employment was enacted and will take effect in April.  The law is intended to help firefighters qualify for workers’ comp benefits or pursue a disability claim with the firefighters’ pension and disability fund.

Right to Try law enacted
Terminally ill patients who have exhausted all approved medical procedures are authorized to pursue treatments and drugs not approved by the FDA, under just-enacted Ohio legislation that will take effect in April.  The bill also immunizes the physician and drug suppliers who provide the experimental treatment or drug.  OAJ amended the bill to require a written notice to the patient.

Annie’s Law enacted 
Legislation allowing first-time drunk drivers to petition the court for unlimited driving privileges with an ignition interlock device was passed and will become law in April.  The legislation was named for OAJ member Annie Rooney who was killed by a drunk driver.
