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
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Texting
  • 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.
