The Common Thread in Cincinnati Motor Vehicle Collisions By personal Injury Attorney Castelli

The common thread in multiple recent and past auto collisions in Cincinnati , Ohio as well as other states is negligence. Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care.

Ordinary care is that care that a reasonably cautious person would use under the circumstances. In addition, the negligence must be a proximate cause of the injury. In other words, but for the negligent conduct the injury would not have occured. 

As a personal injury lawyer in Cincinnati, Ohio Anthony Castelli of the Law Office of Anthony D. Castellli,  has handled hundreds of auto accident claims involving injuries. The recurring theme is that one or more of the drivers was negligent. The negligence could take many forms such as:

  1. Speeding
  2. Distracted Driving
  3. Following too Close
  4. Failure to Keep an Assured Clear Distance
  5. Heroin usage
  6. Driving under the influence of Alchohol
  7. Failure to Yield the Right of Way
  8. Running a stop Sign
  9. Running a red Light
  10. Turing in front of a motor vehicle
  11. Texting
  12. Talking on the Phone
These seem to be the most common. As proof I offer the most recent examples of car accidents in Cincinnati Ohio. (see links below)

As you can see from all if these auto crashes if negligence were not present the car accident would not have occurrred.
