Ohio saw rise in auto accident fatalities in 2019

Here and across the U.S., auto accident injuries and fatalities happen all-too frequently. There are many perceived causes for these collisions and law enforcement is constantly seeking strategies to reduce their number. Included in these causes are a distracted driver and a driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. For people who have been hurt in a crash or lost a loved one, it is important to consider how and why it happened as they think about what steps to take in the aftermath.

Drivers need to take care during winter

Winter can be harsh in Ohio, which is why Ohio drivers need to make sure they drive safely to help keep other travelers safe. Failing to exercise care for the safety of other motorists and passengers when driving conditions become treacherous can result in negligence on the part of the driver and leave them liable to any victims for the damages they suffer in a car accident.

Victims of distracted drivers can get help seeking damages

Distracted driving is a serious concern on roadways everywhere, including in Ohio. Texting and driving kills and seriously injures hundreds of victims in the region each year. It is important for victims of distracted drivers to know how to seek to impose liability and argue for the recovery of compensation so that their physical, emotional, and financial damages can be appropriately addressed.

Lost future earnings should be part of your compensation package

After someone is injured in a car accident, a personal injury lawsuit is concerned largely with reconstructing the accident and the moments immediately before it, in order to determine the truth of what happened and who was at fault. However, it's also important for these cases to look at the future and how the effects of the accident will change the life of the injured and their families for the months and years ahead.

What is whiplash?

Some types of car accident injuries are immediately apparent. Others develop or become apparent only some time has passed after the accident. These are sometimes known as soft tissue injuries.

How do I prove the other driver was at fault?

If you have been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you can file a personal injury claim to hold the other driver liable for your damages. This can be crucial, as it helps you and your family cope with the long aftermath of your accident. Of course, before you can recover any compensation, you must prove that the accident was the other driver's fault. This isn't always easy.

July and August peak times for car accidents

Many people in Cincinnati may wonder why this is true, especially when ice and snow in winter makes roads hazardous. However, summer driving is not without its dangers.
