How to avoid becoming involved in a truck accident

As winter quickly approaches, you must be cautious of your safety on the road. While you may be careful to navigate the road safely in inclement weather conditions, other drivers may not take the same precautions and you may find yourself involved in a serious car or truck accident. There are steps you can take to minimize your risk of becoming involved in a devastating truck accident while out on the road this fall and winter.

What you should know about aggressive drivers

If you have lost your temper or gotten frustrated over other peoples' driving behaviors while navigating the streets in Cleveland, you are not alone. Many people get overwhelmed when stuck in traffic or caught behind a slow driver, especially when they are late for an important appointment or meeting. According to AAA, at least 80 percent of drivers admit to driving aggressively and experiencing anger while behind the wheel.  When the frustration graduates to aggressive driving behavior, however, drivers start to put the lives of other people on the road in danger. You may want to stay on the lookout for the signs of road rage in an attempt to avoid a potential car accident.

Cognitive distraction and hands-free devices

Although it is not illegal for drivers in Ohio to use a hand-held cellphone while behind the wheel, engaging in this practice causes a significant number of auto accidents, injuries and deaths in the United States every year. In an attempt to minimize the number of these incidents, many people have started using hands-free devices. However, studies show that even hands-free cellphones are not safe while driving.

National Safety Month: Prepare for car trouble

“One can never be too prepared.” This saying is true for numerous situations, especially when it comes to emergencies. During June, Ohio residents may consider several safety topics and make plans as to how they will avoid problems or deal with them if troubles arise.

Car crashes involving teens spike during "100 deadliest days"

When you take to the Ohio roadway this summer, you may notice that there are far more teen drivers sharing the road with you than there typically are during the school year. Because teen drivers are generally much more inexperienced than other drivers, this can be a dangerous time for people across all age groups to be on the road. At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we recognize the increased danger motorists face during what has been dubbed driving's "100 deadliest days," and we have helped many motorists who suffered injury because of other drivers' actions seek appropriate recourse.

Distracted driving on the rise across Ohio

If you have ever driven down the road in Ohio and noticed how many other motorists are using phones, eating, or otherwise multitasking while at the vehicle controls, you may have some idea about the severity of the state's distracted driving problem. At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we have seen firsthand the devastation that can result when drivers fail to follow the rules of the road, and we have helped many people who suffered injury or hardship because of distracted drivers pursue appropriate recourse.

What to do after a truck accident

It's March and the lion is on the prowl. Based on the current forecast, it appears likely that any March lamb is going to be sharing time with April showers. All of northeast Ohio, including Cleveland, is under a winter weather advisory with anywhere up to eight inches of snow predicted. Conditions on many roads are already hazardous and accident reports are rolling in.
