Each year, thousands of motor vehicle accidents occur in Cincinnati. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that driver error is the leading cause of car accidents in the United States. Some of the most common causes of driver error are distracted driving, drunk driving, reckless driving and drowsy driving.
All drivers have a duty to drive carefully so as not to cause injury to other people, including people in other cars, pedestrians and so on. When they breach this duty and cause injury to someone else in an accident, they are considered to have acted negligently.
When accidents are caused by negligent drivers, the injured may be entitled to legal compensation. The experienced attorneys at Gregory S.
