Were You Injured In A Car Or Motorcycle Accident?

As a condition of licensure, all Ohio drivers have a duty to drive safely and attentively and to share the road with others. Unfortunately, this duty is too often neglected. Every day, completely preventable auto accidents occur because drivers make poor choices or fail to pay attention to the road.

If you or a loved one has been injured (or worse) by a negligent driver, you have the right to seek justice and compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. And the legal professionals at The Ferruccio Law Firm are here to help you through this difficult time.

Car Accidents: The Most Common Causes

Most car accidents involving two or more vehicles are caused or exacerbated by:

  • Speeding or aggressive driving
  • Texting while driving or other forms of distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals

In other words, most accidents are the result of negligence and/or recklessness. When you hire our firm, you'll have a lawyer who knows how to investigate the details of your accident and to demonstrate that another driver was at fault. We will then help you seek full and fair compensation.

Motorcycle Riders Are Especially At Risk

Motorcycles offer no external protection in a crash. Therefore, otherwise minor accidents can be highly injurious or deadly. Beyond that, however, motorcyclists are also in greater danger because drivers of larger vehicles fail to notice them or respect their space.

One of the deadliest motorcycle accident scenarios is the left-turn accident. When a car or truck makes a left turn across oncoming traffic, the driver often fails to notice a motorcyclist heading his or her way or misjudges the motorcycle's speed and proximity. The driver makes the turn and the motorcyclist slams into the side of the larger vehicle.

Other common accidents and scenarios include:

  • Rear-end accidents
  • Passing a motorcyclist without leaving enough room
  • Failure to keep a lookout

Whether you were injured while operating the motorcycle or suffered injuries as a passenger, our firm is ready to help you.
