Everyone knows that car accidents can cause serious injuries. However, most people would assume that the injuries happen upon the initial impact and not afterward. That was not the case for a recent Ohio crash that left a man in critical condition.
The lives of an individual and their loved ones can be changed and potentially shattered in the instantaneous occurrence of an unexpected accident. Accidents that result in a traumatic brain injury can come in many forms. It may be a medical mistake, a construction accident, a vehicular accident or something else. For an Ohio man, it was the detonation of an IED.
When an accident on a highway alters driving conditions for other motorists traveling the same route, everyone on the road has an obligation to exercise due caution to prevent those road conditions from causing injuries. Unfortunately, this appears not to have been the case in a recent truck accident that took an Ohio man's life.
The loss of a loved one can be devastating for everyone involved. When that loss comes suddenly and unexpectedly, confusion and uncertainty enter into the mix of emotions, and often families don't know where to turn. But when a fatal accident is due to the negligence of another party, the survivors and loved ones of the deceased may be able to recover some measure of compensation through a wrongful death claim.
