Elements of a negligence claim

When Ohio residents are involved in a crash that was caused by someone else, it is common for their loved ones to claim that the other driver 'acted negligently'. Though negligence may mean irresponsibly in plain English, it has very important legal connotations that can affect the course of one's personal injury case against the driver who caused the crash.

Gathering evidence quickly essential in multi-vehicle crashes

Losing a loved one wreaks havoc on the lives of family members. Not only does it take an emotional toll on the family as they try to come to terms with their loss, but it also takes a financial toll as medical bills and funeral expenses pile up. In addition to this, if the person who died was the breadwinner of the family, it creates a financial hole that can cause additional pressure for the family.

Multi-vehicle accident kills one in Ohio

A car accident can take place in the blink of an eye, but the repercussions can last victims and their loved ones a lifetime. A multi-vehicle crash in Ohio left one person dead and another two with catastrophic injuries for which they were airlifted to a hospital to receive medical treatment.

Who is liable in a car crash with a rideshare driver?

Generally, when two vehicles are involved in a car accident, insurance policies exist to cover the injuries suffered by the parties. Either the car accident victim's own insurance policy will cover the incident, if the other motorist is uninsured or underinsured, or the insurance policy of the driver who caused the accident will provide coverage. But as ride sharing becomes more and more common in Ohio as well as the rest of the country, the question that arises is this: Who is liable when one is in an accident with a rideshare driver?

Report shows anger rampant on roads

Ohio residents are undoubtedly aware of the multitude of dangers that they will face when out on the road. Along with the common reasons why there might be an auto accident, the increased use of technology and other relatively new factors that could lead to distraction are making it riskier to be driving each and every day. However, there is one factor that has always been common and that is drivers who are angry and aggressive on the road. While research is seeking reasons for this and methods to put a stop to it, it will always place people in jeopardy, potentially cause a crash and lead to injuries and death.

Compensation may be available for lengthy medical treatment

If someone is injured in a car accident, the most common type of injuries Ohio residents think of are brain injuries, broken bones and, in some instances, whiplash injuries. Many people probably do not think of burn injuries. However, burn injuries and scars are common. Scars can result from whiplashes, road rashes and even from side or front mirrors. While bones may mend, scars can serve as a permanent reminder for accident victims about the trauma they have suffered in the car accident.

What happens after a hit-and-run crash?

When drivers get behind the wheel of their car, they expect to follow all traffic safety regulations, drive carefully and arrive home safely. This is not, however, always the case-though one of the most common activities people across the country engage in, it is also one of the most dangerous as many people lose their lives in tragic car crashes. Though nothing can replace the loss an Ohio resident has suffered when they lose someone in an accident, they can hold someone accountable through a personal injury lawsuit and gain compensation that can cover many of the expenses suddenly coming their way. But what happens when the other party, the party that caused the accident, has fled from the scene of the accident?

New study equates drowsy and drunk driving

Due to the awareness campaigns launched against drinking and driving, many Ohio residents are aware of the dangers of getting behind the wheel intoxicated. However, many people do not think twice before getting behind the wheel while drowsy, even though a new report suggests that drowsy drivers' reaction times are just as bad as drunk drivers.

Fighting for justice in hit-and-run accidents

Ohio residents who have lost someone in a fatal accident may be aware that it is possible to hold the negligent driver who caused the accident criminally and civilly liable. Criminal liability means criminal charges and possible jail time whereas civil liability could mean financial compensation for the family members. Though nothing can replace the loss they have suffered, compensation could help grieving family members with financial costs associated with losing a loved one-funeral expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering and loss of consortium. But what happens when the accident is a hit and run one, as mentioned in last week's blog post-how can a missing driver be held responsible for their negligent behavior?

The link between age and car crashes

Though, driving is an activity that many people engage in across the country on a daily basis, it is a skill that is honed with age and experience. Driving on the road requires attention to changing road conditions, the ability to react quickly to other drivers and alertness. Therefore, someone who has been driving for 10 years may be a better driver than someone who has been only driving for 10 months.
