During the summer, many Ohio residents take to the roads to enjoy a common American practice: the family road trip. As they pile into their cars, trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles, families undoubtedly pack with them the supplies they will need to make their trips successful. Road trips can take a lot of planning, but when they are undertaken with preparation and care, they can be incredibly fun activities.
One thing that individuals often cannot prepare for is the negligent conduct of other drivers. Whether due to drunk driving, distracted driving or another cause, a negligent or reckless driver may not only stop a family's road trip, but also cause the members of that family serious and possibly life-threatening harm.
When a person is hurt by the wrongful driving conduct of another, that victim has rights. They may work with a personal injury attorney to explore their options for seeking compensation, and they may file a lawsuit in the civil courts that holds the negligent driver accountable for their neglect. The Sandel Law Firm, located in Akron, is prepared to support victims of summer car accidents at its office.
The paths that two different car accident victims may take to pursue their damages may be different, and for that reason, victims of vehicle crashes should not solely rely on what others have done following their collisions. The attorneys of the Sandel Law Firm provide their clients with the unique representation and care that they need to make informed decisions that will apply only to their cases.
