Drowsy driving caused by work conditions cause fatal accidents

When Ohio residents get behind the wheel feeling slightly sleepy, they may not think it is a big deal. However, drowsy driving contributes to thousands of crashes a year and if the vehicles involved in the accidents are of disparate sizes, the possible devastation may be more intense as well. This may often be the case in truck accidents, where large 18 wheelers driven by drowsy truck drivers collide with smaller vehicles and cause serious injuries to accident victims.

Distracted driving can contribute to fault in a car accident

Ohio drivers may have heard of the term distracted driving many times, but may not be sure what the term encompasses even though thousands of people die or are injured in car accidents across the country involving distracted driving. Any activity that can cause a person to divert their attention from the primary task of driving is considered distracted driving. Texting, using a cellphone, talking to passengers, watching a video, and adjusting a radio are all examples of distracted driving.

Who is at fault in a car accident?

If a driver rear-ends another vehicle, it seems obvious that driver must be the one at fault and therefore should pay for the damages arising from the accident. However, fault and liability are not as cut and dry as that. Rather, fault depends on a variety of factors and these factors also determine who is liable and for how much in case of an accident.

Truck driver sentenced in fatal Ohio semi-truck accident

Truck accidents can lead to unexpected harm that families may struggle to deal with following a truck accident. In a neighboring community less than an hour north of Cincinnati a truck driver was recently once again before a judge for sentencing related to a fatal truck accident. The truck accident occurred when the driver hit three stopped cars from behind. A woman was killed in one of the vehicles.
