Motor Vehicle Accidents and the Law

Legal claims arising from ohio car and auto accidents are usually governed by the law of negligence. Drivers must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to abide by this is considered negligence. A driver who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. The injured party is required to prove that the defendant was negligent, that the negligence proximately caused the accident, and finally, that the accident did in fact cause the plaintiff's injuries.
