Ohio ranks high in auto accidents and dangerous drivers

When it comes to a car accident in Ohio and throughout the country, the circumstances are often viewed as the key factor in how and why it happened. For example, maybe a driver was under the influence or driving recklessly. However, there is value in looking at the various statistics for a car crash in individual states and across the U.S. overall. A recent study by a shopping site that consumers use to find insurers has declared that drivers in Ohio are the 17th worst in the country. For those who have been injured in a car accident and faced medical expenses or lost a loved one to a fatality, this information can be of value when considering a legal filing.

Icy road conditions lead to crashes in Ohio

The falling snow may be pretty to look at from the windows, but those who are trudging through the snow, either on foot or on the road, understand the dangers involved with the snow. The weather affects not only road conditions but our reaction time to those changing conditions as well, and those who are unable to respond appropriately may cause tragic car accidents.

Distracted driving on the rise in Ohio

Distracted driving is dangerous and can have serious consequences for victims and their families. A smashed Ohio Highway Patrol (OHP) car sits outside of a patrol post in Ohio as a reminder of the dangers of distracted driving. A police officer was injured in the accident when a drunk driver, also suspected of distracted driving, hit him during a routine stop. According to the OHP, distracted driving is up by 39 percent. In addition, distraction-related accidents are also on the rise and have increased by 11 percent. Between 2014 and 2015 13,261 distracted driving-related accidents were reported that resulted in 39 fatalities.

Common injury after crash can become chronic

Many Ohio residents know the discomfort associated with a headache. The persistent throbbing of the head that prevents a person from being able to complete even the most basic of tasks. Now imagine living with that pain, stiffness and headache for weeks, if not months, on end. That is what people suffering from catastrophic injuries such as whiplash after a car crash have to deal with.

Elements of a negligence claim

When Ohio residents are involved in a crash that was caused by someone else, it is common for their loved ones to claim that the other driver 'acted negligently'. Though negligence may mean irresponsibly in plain English, it has very important legal connotations that can affect the course of one's personal injury case against the driver who caused the crash.
