Compensation for Car Crash Victims in Dayton
Some car accidents are simply unavoidable. Most, however, are the direct
result of the negligence of one of the drivers. What is meant by "negligence?"
This word is manifested through any type of driving behavior that can
result in unnecessary accidents, including:
- Driving recklessly
- Unsafe lane changes
- Checking email
- Any action on a cell phone
- Drunk driving
In general, negligent driving is any type of action-or failure to act-which
constitutes a failure to take reasonable precautions to avoid causing
an accident. If you have reason to believe that your accident should have
been prevented, and that the other driver is at fault, you may be entitled
to recover financial compensation by filing a
personal injury or
wrongful death claim.
