Accidents happen every day, and they can sometimes result in unfortunately severe injuries, and, at times, death. Most often these injuries are caused by car accidents, trucking accidents, falling or other common accidents. Not as often are injuries incurred by exotic animals kept as pets. However, this is the situation faced by the mother of an Ohio man that was mauled and killed by a bear kept as a pet by another Ohio resident.
Everyone knows that when vehicles collide, the consequences can be devastating. However, what can be even more serious and potentially devastating is when a car accident involves a pedestrian. Sadly, that was the case in a recent Ohio car crash involving two vehicles and one person on foot.
It goes without saying that catastrophic injuries should be dealt with immediately by victims and medical professionals. However, a recent study shows that those who suffer traumatic brain injuries during a weekend are more likely to die from those injuries.
Semi drivers and those driving vehicles that require a commercial driver's license are held to a different standard of care on the road than drivers of other smaller motor vehicles. Several reasons account for this, but one of them is to make sure the roads remain safe with vehicles on the road that are carrying extremely heavy, and sometimes hazardous, loads.
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 tragic death can come in many forms. But no matter what the form, the situation is always life shattering for those involved.
