Causes of Car or Truck Accidents

Many car accidents involve one vehicle rear-ending or turning in front of another.  Some accidents occur due to improper lane changes.  Too many car or truck accidents occur because one driver is using a cell phone and is distracted.  

We also encounter automobile collisions that are caused by strange circumstances. We see collisions that are caused by phantom vehicles and bizarre actions by people who are not even in cars, for example. 

In every case, the investigation of the claim can be paramount in proving the case. For this reason, having a car or truck accident lawyer near Hamilton Ohio in your corner will be imperative. 

Proving Liability in Car and Truck Accidents

All drivers on the road have a duty to everyone else to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly. If they breach this duty by acting in a manner that is unsafe or reckless, they can be held liable for accidents or injuries that result from their actions or omissions.

Breach of Duty

When a driver does not meet a recognized standard for safe travel on the roadway, the driver breaches a duty. That legal term may sound more complex than it really is. Ohio law sets forth a number of rules in the Ohio Revised Code. As a driver on the roadway, each of us is expected to uphold those rules.  If we fail to abide by a rule, we breach a duty.

If you are injured in a collision due to another driver breaching a duty owed to you and other drivers on the roadway, you have a right to pursue legal action for the injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages that you may suffer as a result.
