Bizarre accident leads to death of Ohio woman

Although collisions between vehicles are not uncommon, not many accidents happen due to debris flying off of automobiles and crashing into others. However, this was just the scenario that took place outside of Dayton earlier this week. The accident occurred on Interstate 75 and involved two vehicles.

Legal representation for victims of summer vehicle accidents

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.

Law enforcement officials warn about preventable vehicle crashes

One of the most frustrating things about car accidents is that many of them are preventable. In fact, the Ohio State Highway Patrol has recently started a campaign to make drivers aware of one particularly common and avoidable type of crash: failure to yield collisions.

What are common forms of driving distractions?

Anyone who has tried to work while hungry or tired understands how hard it is to focus when their attention is on something other than their job. All across Ohio individuals struggle with distractions on a daily basis and while in most situations a distraction is only a momentary break from a more important task in some contexts distractions are potentially life-threatening perils.

Reckless driver causes head-on crash in Ohio

It is often the case that when a person drives negligently or recklessly and their actions cause a vehicle crash, they are part of the resulting collision. A recent accident in Ohio demonstrates how the actions of an uncontrolled driver put the lives of others in danger, despite the fact that the reckless driver's vehicle emerged from a crash unscathed.

What is a hit-and-run accident?

When a car accident occurs on an Akron road, it is normal for the uninjured parties involved in the crash to find a safe place to get out of their vehicles and to assess the damage that has happened. They will generally exchange pertinent information, such as their contact information, insurance providers and numbers and vehicle information so that they may make claims for the recovery of their losses.

Strong representation to get back on your feet after an accident

After a car accident, an Akron resident may not know what they should do to protect their rights. They may be preoccupied with healing their accident-related wounds, finding help to accomplish their daily needs and making sure other victims are safe and comfortable as they recover. As time passes, they may be less likely to take active steps to investigate and understand their legal rights.

What car accident victims need to know about negligence

Car accidents are, unfortunately, quite common in Ohio. It is fairly likely that a resident of Akron will be involved in a collision with another vehicle at some point in their lifetime. If they are not the cause of their crash, then they may be a victim of another person's negligence.

Drunk driving is a danger to Ohio residents

Drunk driving is a dangerous practice because intoxicated drivers generally do not have the capacity to respond to changing road conditions like sober drivers. A drunk driver may not be able to react to a pedestrian in the road or may not be able to avoid a collision if a vehicle in their vicinity comes to a stop. Because drinking and driving is so perilous to the health and safety of Ohio residents, the state has created significant criminal laws against engaging in the practice.
