Injured in an accident with a snowplow? We know what to do

In the midst of winter, Ohio drivers may find themselves driving under harsh weather conditions. Even as they take precautions to avoid accidents, many cities use commercial vehicles to remove ice and snow from the roads in order to further reduce the possibility of wrecks. These commercial vehicles are under tremendous pressure to cover a lot of ground in a little amount of time and may themselves not be taking necessary precautions on icy roads.

A few precautions can help avoid crashes in winter weather

Readers of the Cincinnati Car Accident Law Blog may have read last week's post about icy conditions contributing to truck accidents across the state. Driving, one of the most common activities Ohio residents engage in, can also be dangerous, and adverse weather conditions only raise the risk. However, there are some preparations Ohio drivers can make to ensure they drive safely and avoid crashes whenever possible, even in extreme weather.

Icy rain leads to major crashes in northern Ohio

With winter comes snow and ice and residents in Ohio understand that this also means dangerous driving conditions. Although drivers are advised to stay off the roads during inclement weather, some residents have no choice but to take to the roads to get to their necessary destinations. When this occurs, it is important that drivers operate their vehicles with caution and are aware of other drivers on the roadways. This is especially true with large trucks, helping them avoid a serious truck accident.

Investigation underway in fatal motorcycle crash

Many factors contribute to the fact that motorcycle accidents are often more dangerous than other types of accidents. One of these is the differences in the sizes of the vehicles involved-a passenger vehicle provides more protection than a motorcycle does in the event of an accident. In addition to this, bikers themselves have little protection-people in a car can protect themselves with a seatbelt, which it is mandatory to wear but bikers often only have kneepads to protect themselves. Wearing a helmet is not even mandatory after the age of 17. Readers of the Cincinnati Car Accident Blog may have read the recent post on motorcycle accidents and the importance of wearing them to reduce injuries and even possible death in the event of a crash.
