Why do car accidents increase with age?

When it comes to safe driving, the general assumption is that younger drivers are more inexperienced and lack the maturity that older drivers have, therefore younger drivers are the most dangerous on the road. Though this is true, it is also true that the risk of being injured or killed in a car accident increases as one ages. On average, more than 550 older adults across the country are injured in crashes every day.

What does 'loss of consortium' mean in a damages claim?

When an Ohio residents are injured in car accidents, they may be aware that they can bring personal injury lawsuits against the negligent or reckless drivers who caused the accidents. In these lawsuits, they may be able to recover expenses to cover their medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and a less-spoken about type of recovery known as loss of consortium.

Pursuing recovery in a motorcycle crash

The importance of wearing a helmet was outlined in last week's post on this blog, and the stark reality that many bikers in Ohio do not wear a helmet despite the benefits of it. But even those who wear a helmet can suffer severe head injuries, as helmet use does not eliminate the risk of injury, but only reduces it.

Helmets save lives in motorcycle accidents

Because motorcyclists are more exposed than car or truck drivers, when motorcyclists are involved in an accident, they are more likely to suffer injuries than drivers of other types of vehicles to get injured. One of the best things motorcyclists can do to prevent serious injury to themselves is to wear a helmet.
