Car Accidents in Ohio
Motor vehicle accidents can be incredibly devastating. The unfortunate truth is that there are tens of thousands of collisions reported statewide every year that result in injuries. The vast majority of accidents that take place on our roadways are due to driver negligence. Distractions tend to be one of the most common contributing factors to these accidents. There are several types of distractions that cause accidents across our state. These include:
Visual Distraction: Anything that draws a driver’s eyes away from the road.
Manual Distraction: Taking a driver’s hands off the steering wheel to engage in tasks like eating, drinking, or using electronic devices.
Cognitive Distraction: Zoning out while driving is often noticeable in cases where a driver does not recall the last few miles or how they reached their destination.
Auditory Distraction: Shifting a driver’s focus from the road ahead to concentrate on music, conversations with passengers, and similar auditory stimuli.
If you have been harmed as a result of the collision that was due to the negligent actions of another driver, you may be able to take legal action.
