What do I do if I am involved in a car accident?

As Ohio residents may have read last week on the Cincinnati Car Accident Law Blog, distracted driving contributes to thousands of accidents in the state annually. Texting and driving is one of the distractions people face on the road, in addition to sleepiness and fatigue and even daydreaming in some cases. Distractions can come in a variety of ways, and it can often be difficult to prove in an auto accident case.

What are Ohio's texting while driving laws?

Like many states across the country, Ohio has banned texting while driving. The ban, in effect since 2013, has led to 440 tickets being written up by the State Highway Patrol Officers. Of the 240,000 accidents in the state since the beginning of this year, distractions were a factor in 6,000, and of those, texting and emailing contributed to 137 crashes.

Teen dies in tragic Ohio car accident

Losing someone suddenly in a fatal car accident is difficult for any Ohio family member, but when the car accident victim is a young person with their whole life full of promises ahead of him or her, it may be extra difficult for loved ones to come to terms with their loss. Their pain and suffering may be compounded by the thought of what could have been, and, therefore, closure may be harder to come by.

Factors leading to motorcycle accidents

Ohio residents may have heard time and time again that motorcycle accidents are more dangerous than accidents involving other vehicles, but they may not be certain as to why this is the case. The sheer size and protective covering offered by vehicles are not the only factors that determine injury in a crash between a motorcycle and another vehicle. According to FindLaw, there are a number of other factors that uniquely affect motorcyclists only.

Ohio motorcyclist suffers serious injury from accident

Motorcycles are common vehicles in Ohio. People like that they have great gas mileage and are fun to ride. But these perks do not come without risks. Motorcycles provide very little protection for riders and even minor accidents can result in serious injuries for riders.
