The possibility of lower speed limits for large vehicles

Ohio residents might be happy to know that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration are trying to reduce the highway speed limits for large vehicles such as buses and trucks. Each year, there are more than 1,000 fatalities resulting from accidents involving commercial vehicles. According to supporters of this proposal, this measure would increase the safety of the roadways and save on fuel costs.

Recovering damages in slip and fall injury cases

An Ohio business is responsible for maintaining a safe environment for its patrons. One of the most common types of accidents related to premises liability involves slips and falls. In these incidents, an individual can suffer minor or serious injuries depending on the conditions. In serious situations, medical bills and other expenses can mount as an injured party seeks treatment or deals with lost wages. In some cases, injured parties might bear some of the responsibility for their accident, which can affect their ability to recover damages through legal action.

Sleepy behind the wheel equivalent to drinking alcohol

Most Ohio motorists understand the hazards of drinking and driving. Drowsy driving, however, also poses significant risks. A lack of sleep impairs people to an extent similar to alcohol. The Governors Highway Safety Association has released a report about the safety issues created by sleep-deprived people who operate motor vehicles.

Trampoline parks: fun, games, injuries

Trampoline parks have become an increasingly popular place to hold birthday parties, scout meetings, church youth group get-togethers and other activities for children. According to the International Association of Trampoline Parks, there were just 25 trampoline parks across the country in 2010, but that number had skyrocketed up to more than 350 in 2014.

The benefits of Safe Driver Week

Ohio motorists might want to be aware that the Commercial Vehicle Safety Administration's annual Operation Safe Driver Week will start this year on October 16. During that week, law enforcement officials will be making an increased effort to track unsafe driver behavior with the goal of promoting traffic safety among passenger and commercial motorists. The agency also hopes that the seven-day event will result in fewer vehicle accidents, injuries and fatalities.

Preventing premises liability lawsuits

Many small Ohio businesses do what they can to keep their customers and employees safe by ensuring that their property is free from hazards. Even when steps are taken to prevent hazards from occurring, accidents can still happen. While employees are generally covered under workers' compensation, customers or vendors may seek compensation for their injuries by filing a premises liability lawsuit, which can be very expensive for small businesses.
