13.5 percent of Ohio drivers do not have car insurance

When Ohio residents are involved in a car accident that is caused by someone else's negligence, and are injured in the process, the first thing they and their loved ones do is consider themselves lucky that they survived the crash. However, it is entirely possible that their car was totaled in the crash. As time passes, considerations about the car and the damage done to it come to mind, and not only are victims thinking about their medical bills, but also their mechanic bills. They may think that the other driver's insurance will cover the bill, but what if they are injured by a driver who does not have car insurance, or their coverage is not enough?

Agency investigates truck hitch after semi-truck crash

Large trucks are a major concern for drivers in Cincinnati and throughout the state. These vehicles are massive, often travel at a high rate of speed and the drivers are on the road for an extended period of time increasing the potential for a crash due to fatigue. Another possible cause of a trucking accident might be a defect in the truck itself. This factor is receiving renewed attention in the aftermath of an accident in Cincinnati from 2014.

Navigating the legal waters of a drunk driver accident

For many motorists, traveling on the open road is an activity that happens with nothing significant of note occurring. Turn after turn, stretch of asphalt after stretch of asphalt-driving is a point A to point B task that can be both productive and enjoyable. However, the negligence of other drivers can sometimes change that enjoyment into tragedy.

CELEBRATING INDEPENDENCE DAY

Whether you are barbequing, laying out by the pool, watching fireworks, or watching the Reds play this weekend, it is important that you take proactive measures to ensure your safety. You do not want your fun-filled weekend to end up sour by ending up behind bars or injured in a car accident.

New Ohio Law for Teenage Drivers

Beginning July 1, 2015, probationary license holders, drivers under the age of eighteen, will face new restrictions that limit when young drivers will be allowed on the road as well as how many passengers they may carry. Starting on July 1st, probationary license holders will not be allowed to drive between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. unless the driver is accompanied by a parent or has a work, school, or church exemption. These new restrictions are being put into place to help protect young drivers in addition to any others who may be on the road at that time. Teenage drivers make up only five percent of total licensed drivers but they are responsible for approximately thirteen percent of fatal accidents.
Furthermore, seventy-six percent of night time accidents involve young drivers. The new bill is aimed at lowering the accident rates across the state as well as helping young drivers learn at a measured pace. The hope is that this bill will give young drivers a greater opportunity gain experience before traveling at riskier times of day.

50 years of holding distracted drivers accountable

When someone is involved in a car accident and suffers injuries as a result, it may take time for the accident victim to heal, not just physically, but also emotionally. If the victim later learns the accident was caused because the other driver was distracted, such as by texting on their phone, it may be more difficult to come to terms with the accident and understand why someone would value their text message more than someone else's life. But this is the sad reality on the roads, not just in Ohio but across the country. More than 3,000 people died in distracted driving accidents in 2010 and more than 410,000 were injured during the same year. An accident victim may be frustrated to be involved in a completely avoidable accident such as this one.
