Cuyahoga County fatalities involving alcohol and speed

If you are like most people in Ohio, you are concerned about safety on the roads. The health and future of you and your family is literally on the line every time you ride in a vehicle, walk on a sidewalk or ride a bike. You may choose to drive safely and follow all of the laws but the fact of the matter is that other drivers have the unfortunate ability to choose the opposite path. There continue to be many selfish people who do not want to obey posted speed limits or hand over their keys when they have been drinking.

Traffic accidents involving snowmobiles

This winter, many places in the U.S. have seen unusual weather. Some cities have experienced far higher levels of snowfall than usual, while others have endured brutally cold temperatures. Also, some parts of the country regularly experience severe winter weather conditions and a great deal of snowfall. When these conditions are present, some people may decide to ride a snowmobile alongside the road or even take their snowmobile onto the road. This may be a fun or convenient way to get around, but it can also be dangerous, and many snowmobilers have been hurt in traffic accidents.

How much is an average Ohio car crash settlement?

One of the first things you should know about car crash settlements in Ohio is that average numbers are often not applicable to your specific situation. The cost of your medical bills, lost work and car repairs would probably have the most effect on your particular assignment.

The link between road construction and car wrecks

Road construction is quite common across Ohio and the United States, and avoiding these areas where delays and confusion are rampant is not always realistic or feasible. Road construction zones are common sites for car wrecks, however, so it is important that you stay particularly vigilant and attentive when making your way through them. At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., we recognize that, while construction, itself, often has a hand in work zone accidents, other drivers navigating their way through construction zones are often the cause of related car crashes.

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.

Repeat drunk driver kills four, including toddler

People who live in Ohio and hear about drunk drivers causing accidents have good reason to be upset. The laws governing drinking and driving are very clear and the facts speak for themselves: driving a vehicle after drinking is dangerous. The choice to operate a vehicle after consuming alcohol is a choice and is one that can be avoided if a person is responsible. Any crash that happens due to an impaired driver is one that should be completely avoidable. 

National Teen Driver Safety Week

From poor weather conditions to inattentive drivers, these dangers can impact you and other Ohio residents without warning. You should also be aware of the risks that are posed both to and by teenage drivers.
