Protecting victims from wintertime snow plow accidents in Ohio

| Dec 18, 2015 | Truck Accidents

It is wintertime in Ohio and many serious truck accidents can result between passenger vehicles and snow plows and salt trucks. Snow plows may be government run or privately run. Snow plow operators can experience extreme pressures during poor weather conditions and while experiencing fatigue which may lead to accidents. Snow plow accidents, unfortunately, can result in serious injuries and even death.

Because snow plow accidents can be catastrophic in nature, victims may be left facing unexpected challenges and costs including medical expenses, lost wages, future medical costs and pain and suffering. Victims may be able to seek compensation for the physical, financial and emotional damages they have suffered, depending on the circumstances, through a personal injury or wrongful death action.

Insurance companies and settlements may be involved as a part of the process so it is important for victims, and surviving family members of victims, to be familiar with the legal options and remedies available to them. There are a number of important concerns to consider such as accident investigations and medical evaluations, called independent medical exams, for instance, among others.

There may also be special requirements it is necessary to satisfy when pursuing a claim against the government, such as the local municipality responsible for the snow plow, so it is important to be familiar with legal requirements, and timelines in many instances, associated with filing a claim for damages. The legal process seeks to protect the interests of the victims whenever they have been wrongfully harmed by the negligent of another party, however that circumstance may arise, including from snow plow dangers in wintertime.
