Flu season and car crashes

Auto accidents are caused by many different things, such as reckless behavior and bad weather. However, drivers should be aware of less common causes also. For example, someone who is sick may be more likely to cause a motor vehicle wreck for various reasons and this becomes especially concerning during the flu season. If you are sick and need to drive, it is vital to make sure that you are able to safely operate a vehicle and that you do not put any lives at risk, including your own. Unfortunately, some people do not follow this advice, especially if they need to get to work or take care of some other responsibility.

Downed power lines and the risk of an accident

The roads have many hazards to watch out for, some of which are the result of driver negligence and some of which are caused by mother nature. During an intense storm, there may be a number of hazards on the road. For example, heavy rain or snow may affect visibility and road conditions, while strong winds can blow debris onto the roadway. Sometimes, these strong winds can bring down power lines and there are other reasons why power lines may be down (lightning, etc.). As a driver, it is crucial to be aware of these hazards while you are behind the wheel, especially since they may increase the chances of a collision occurring.

Who is liable in a car vs bicycle collision

If you are involved in a bicycle accident in Ohio, it can result in severe, often fatal injuries. When you or your representatives file a claim, it involves many of the same components as any motor vehicle accident. Negligence is often the cause or contributing factor, whether on the part you or the driver. Traffic laws and the rules of the road apply to drivers and cyclists alike. Each has the duty to exercise ordinary care for themselves as well as others on the roadway. At Cubbon & Associates, Co., L.P.A., we understand that if you were on a bicycle that collided with a car, the driver might be liable.

What are the most common mistakes that teenage drivers make?

You have just returned home from helping your teenager to get his or her driver's license in Ohio. Now the real fun begins. You have agreed to allow your child to use one of the vehicles and are ridden with anxiety about how you can encourage him or her to drive safely and responsibly. One of the things you can do is to learn more about the most common mistakes that teenage drivers make so you can educate your child on these dangers and teach practices that will reinforce good driving behaviors. 

How many deadly drunk driving wrecks involve young drivers?

We have written about many of the car crash causes, such as distracted driving, on this blog. Many people realize that alcohol intoxication is a major risk factor when it comes to fatal motor vehicle accidents, but drivers continue to operate their vehicle while drunk. Moreover, it is crucial for parents and young drivers to be aware of just how many of these deadly drunk driving crashes involve a young driver under the influence of alcohol. Sadly, these wrecks leave many lives upended, from a young person who passes away or shatters their future to innocent victims who were hit by someone who should not have been driving.
