With better driving conditions, more technology and better motorcycles, Ohio residents might think that the number of motorcycle crashes have decreased over the years but they would be wrong-motorcycle related deaths have seen a 55 percent increase since 2000. More than 4500 people died in motorcycle accidents in 2010 alone.
Alcohol related crashes are perhaps the most devastating car accidents because they could have been avoided if the drunk driver had acted responsibly and not gotten behind the wheel after drinking. Injuries sustained in a car accident can take months if not years to recover from physically and there is no limit on how long it may take the emotional wounds to heal.
Readers of the Cincinnati Car Accident Blog may have read the post last week about what to do in case they are involved in an accident during the busy holiday season. But don't let the holiday rush you into coming to a settlement quickly in order to avoid a fuss. It takes time to evaluate the damages that arise from a car accident and for injuries to manifest. Quickly rushing to settle the claim may leave Ohio residents with less compensation than they deserve.
As the holiday season approaches, Ohio residents may find themselves rushing to get their holiday shopping done on time to avoid the crowds near the middle of the month. Crowds inside the stores lead to crowds outside the stores, specifically in parking lots. Everyone wants the parking space nearest to the store so they can avoid walking distances in the Ohio cold, but as shoppers drive about looking for the ideal parking spot they may not be paying attention to other vehicles, leading to a minor accident.
