Head-on car crash injures Ohio deputy

Law enforcement officers in Cincinnati are at constant risk to their personal safety. This is a foundational aspect of doing their jobs. Most of the dangers they face have to do with helping others and investigating crimes. However, there are also times when they are placed in danger in a fashion similar to civilians. This is particularly true when they are on the road. Auto accidents can happen to anyone, and for a multitude of reasons, whether it is distraction, recklessness, intoxication or circumstance. Just like anyone else, when there is a car crash, law enforcement officers and their families must take steps to protect themselves with a possible legal filing.

Eating and drinking is a known cause of distracted driving

Drivers in Ohio and across the country can be distracted in a multitude of ways. While the common issues that can lead to a distracted driver is use of a smartphone, texting and other activities with the device, drivers can also be distracted by eating and drinking. Research has been examining the numerous issues that lead to a distraction and eating and drinking is a notorious problem. For those who are in car accident, a factor to consider as its cause is whether the other driver was doing this.

Ohio car accident victim with eight children dies

When there is a fatal car accident in Ohio, the aftermath can cause numerous different problems for the family left behind. This can include not being able to make ends meet, having to deal with the emotional aspects of the death and more. This is particularly true when there are children left behind. After automobile accidents, the family needs to make certain that it takes the necessary steps to pursue compensation through a legal filing.

Demographics and pedestrian-car accident rates in Ohio

Research into various kinds of accidents is constantly being conducted by government agencies and independent groups to determine why they happen and how they can be reduced or prevented. Pedestrian accidents are prominent in these studies. In Ohio, the number of pedestrians who are killed in a car accident ranks just beyond the middle for the U.S. Even that is too many. Understanding the demographics and reasons why these incidents occur is fine, but those who have already had a loved one suffer catastrophic injuries and die as a car accident victim while walking should be aware of the numbers so they can consider a legal claim for compensation.

Legal help seeking compensation after a motorcycle accident

Motorcycles are a frequent sight on the road in Ohio. While the majority of drivers will share the road with a motorcyclist and do so making sure that everyone is safe, motorcycle unawareness is a common problem that can lead to a crash. Failure to yield, lack of judgment and driving while distracted are all frequent causes of a motorcycle accident. Compounding the issues that go along with a motorcycle accident is the vulnerability of the rider or riders. This can result in severe injuries and even fatalities.

NHTSA study shows rise in car accidents continues

Given the number of negative aftereffects of a car crash like medical costs, lost time at work and even death, Ohioans and those across the U.S. should keep track of the statistics of these incidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of fatalities on the road increased by approximately eight percent over the first nine months of 2016 from that same period in 2015. This is a continuation of the rise that has been in place for several years. The agency says that this coincides with the rising number of drivers who are on the road for longer periods of time.
