Common Causes of Ohio Car Accidents

Accidents happen every day all around the United States. It is estimated that there is a motor vehicle accident every 10 seconds. That means tens of thousands of accidents every year in Ohio alone. Here is a look at some of the most common causes of Maumee car accidents we see:

  • Distracted driving can be texting and driving, changing the radio station, GPS, putting on makeup, eating, talking to a back seat passenger, etc.
  • Violating a traffic regulation — speeding, running a red light or stop sign, illegal turn, etc., can all contribute to causing a car accident.
  • Driving under the influence — even if you only had one drink, getting behind the wheel of a vehicle is never a good idea. Your reaction time and judgment are impaired, even under the legal limit. A DUI can also involve legal and illegal narcotics. When you receive a prescription from your doctor and the pharmacy tells you not to drive, there is a good reason why.
  • Mechanical failure — brake failure, tire blowouts, etc. can contribute to causing an accident.
  • Road conditions — road hazards like potholes, debris on the road, etc.
  • Weather conditions —Rain, sleet, snow, black ice, and other adverse weather conditions can also contribute to car accidents.

Damages You Can Receive in a Car Accident

Every accident claim is different from the circumstances of the accident, and your injuries are unique. Damages you may be eligible to pursue in a claim include:

  • Medical expenses to date
  • Future medical treatment
  • Lost wages to date
  • Future loss of earnings
  • Disability
  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering

The more severely injured you are, the more your claim will be worth. Speak to a skilled Ohio car accident attorney who can tell you what your case value is.
