Voice activated devices and cognitive distraction

Voice activated technology comes standard in many vehicles allowing drivers the luxury of speaking commands and carrying out tasks, all without having to remove their hands from the steering wheel. Although this technology is designed to decrease driver distraction, studies show that it may do just the opposite. Although voice-activated devices do not require drivers to use their hands or eyes, it does require their focus. When motorists switch their focus from driving and concentrate on another task, such as trying to complete a command, it increases the risk of a serious car accident.

What must you prove in a wrongful death case?

When your loved one dies in Ohio because of someone's negligence or misconduct, you have the right to sue that person for your loved one's wrongful death. Bear in mind that a wrongful death suit is a civil suit, not a criminal prosecution conducted by the state. What this means is that if you believe someone's misconduct, such as allegedly committing assault or murder, caused your loved one's death, the state need not convict that person of the alleged crime for you to be able to sue him or her for wrongful death.
