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.

Accident at intersection claims a life

Crossing through the intersection of two streets is normally a relatively safe activity, given that the individuals who are driving their vehicles respect the rules of the road and the signage posted in the area. Every day Ohio drivers successfully navigate these common roadway interchanges and few suffer harm as a result of collisions or accidents. However, a very violent crash in an intersection recently occurred near Akron and that collision took the life of a 38-year-old woman.

Compensation may be available after a vehicle accident

Each day accidents between cars, trucks and other motor vehicles happen on Akron roads and highways. Many of the incidents that result when automobiles collide are minor happenings that force individuals to delay their plans and deal with their insurance companies to get their vehicles fixed. However, in some cases, accident victims suffer significant and even life-threatening injuries that require them to seek significant and immediate medical support.

What is reckless driving?

In many American jurisdictions, reckless driving is a criminally punishable offense. It is a common cause of car accidents and the basis for civil claims as well. These are oftentimes preventable collisions. Reckless driving constitutes driving conduct that is something more than simple negligence, which is the failure of a driver to act reasonably given the circumstances surrounding them.
