Chili eating blamed for pedestrian death

A recently filed wrongful death and negligence lawsuit seeks to hold a bus driver liable for the death and injury of pedestrians in 2016 because he allegedly looked away from the road to throw away a chili container. The plaintiffs also charged that this was the driver's fortieth vehicle accident since joining the Southwest Regional Transit Authority in 2006.

School buses lack safety belts

Ohio lacks any requirements for seat belts on school buses, even though one proponent argued that wrongful death and personal injury verdict awards would drop. More importantly, there are six child fatalities in this country each year, while 7,000 children also suffered injuries in school bus accidents.

Higher traffic deaths have many causes

The rise in Ohio traffic deaths is increasing the likelihood of wrongful death legal actions in this country. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued a report that the number of traffic fatalities in this country increased last year by 5.6 percent to 37,461. This accounted for 102 deaths in this country each day in vehicle crashes.

Two young people killed in fatal car crash

Losing loved ones is never easy for people in Ohio. These individuals provide so much love and support to people as they go through their daily lives and filling the void is never easy. However, it can be a little easier when people have time to prepare for the loved one's death. When people die of old age, many times the family knows it is coming and can prepare for the loss. Others die young and unexpectedly though, leaving the family no time to prepare, which can be even more devastating.
