Issues that lead to Ohio car accidents

Despite the best efforts of police, Ohio car accidents occur on a regular basis. This holds true throughout the entire state, including on highways and city roads. While there are many reasons for car accidents, the National Safety Council has pinpointed six of the most common causes:

-- Distracted driving: This includes a number of things, such as texting and talking on a cellphone.

-- Teen driving: Did you know that motor vehicle accidents are the top cause of death among American teens?

-- Impaired driving: Every 30 minutes, somebody is killed in an alcohol-related accident in the U.S. Furthermore, somebody is injured in such an accident every two minutes. Even though the country as a whole has cut back on drinking and driving accidents, this remains a major problem.

-- Occupant protection: There are still many groups of people who fail to wear a seat belt, thus increasing the chance of injury or death in an accident.

-- Speeding: Speeding is a factor in approximately 33 percent of all fatal crashes.

-- Mature drivers: Just the same as teens, senior drivers have a higher chance of being involved in a motor vehicle accident.

There are many issues that lead to Ohio car accidents. While authorities continue to do what they can to make the roadways safer for everybody, there will always be times when somebody makes a mistake or acts in a negligent manner.

When a person is involved in a car accident, his or her life can change forever. Some people consult with an attorney after an accident to ensure that their rights are protected.
