Lowering the chances of distracted driving

Distracted driving continues to present a major problem on roadways in Ohio and across the United States. During 2015, according to statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 391,000 people suffered injuries and 3,477 people died in distracted driving car accidents. The NHTSA includes any activity that pulls the motorist's attention from the task of driving in the definition of distracted driving. People can avoid distracted driving themselves by taking a few precautions.

Drowsy driving is a serious risk

Drowsy driving is a big problem on roadways in Ohio and throughout the United States. It's dangerous because it results in several different risky behaviors, including reduced attentiveness, slow reaction times and poor judgment. Sleepiness or fatigue on the road is caused by untreated sleep disorders, overwork, medications and alcohol. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that in 2013, there were 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries and 800 deaths caused by drowsy driving.

Delayed symptoms may indicate serious injury

At the very least, a traffic accident is disruptive to your life. At the most, it can change your life forever. Injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident can be devastating, and you may know in an instant that you are badly hurt and need medical attention. Unfortunately, serious injuries are not always obvious, and even a low-speed traffic accident can result in injuries.

Artificial intelligence to reduce distracted driving and costs

Distracted driving involves more than cellphones, navigation systems and other modern devices. Sometimes, a driver is simply distracted in their mind. They may be sleepy, grappling with a personal dilemma or lost in deep thought when they should be paying attention to the road.

Vehicles associated with the most crash-related injury claims

Many of the cars and trucks driven in Ohio include an assortment of safety features. Even so, there's always the risk of human error and outside factors that can contribute to collisions. In some cases, it's the vehicle itself that doesn't offer sufficient protection in the event of an accident. Insurance loss statistics compiled by the Highway Loss Data Institute, or HLDI, shed some light on which particular cars and trucks are most likely to be associated with crash-related injuries.

Technology and its role in distracted driving

The U.S. Department of Transportation has shown that in 2017, there were 37,150 fatalities on the nation's roads. This makes for a 10 percent increase over 2014, and while public safety officials have not definitively made the link, it appears that the rising use of smartphones and infotainment systems may be partly responsible. Drivers in Ohio will want to know about some recent studies that have been made regarding the effect of technology on drivers.

Different types of damages are available following a car accident

Getting seriously injured in a car accident may be one of the most frightening experiences you ever have to endure. In addition to being totally shaken, you might even be infuriated because the accident was due to the other driver's bad driving.

Proving liability after a car accident

Ohio residents who are involved in a car, bike, or motorcycle accident know that it's important to let the insurance companies know who was at fault. This is where evidence becomes crucial. The following are just a couple of the most important things that victims must present if they hope to make a strong argument.
