Thousands of unsuspecting victims are injured or worse every year in car accidents on Ohio’s roads and highways. Many of these wrecks are a direct result of other drivers’ negligence. As a diligent, responsible driver, it’s important to be aware of the most dangerous roadways in the state. This knowledge will allow you to take extra precautions in the areas where the most accidents, injuries, and deaths occur.

On December 19, 2018, an Illinois appellate court revived a lawsuit regarding two individuals who were struck by a speeding vehicle after an Uber driver kicked them out of their ride.

In October 2014, Farid Kessanti, the Uber driver, picked up Sean Kramer and Jasmine Vega from the Chicago theater. After taking several wrong turns, the passengers began to question Kessanti’s driving abilities and area competency. As a result, Kessanti terminated the service mid-ride and kicked the two out of his vehicle.

The two were left in a high-traffic and allegedly high-crime area. It was poorly lit and surrounded by bars and people with varying levels of sobriety. While walking to their destination, they were struck in an intersection by a speeding driver, John Szczepaniak – who fled the scene and was apprehended the next day. Both Kramer and Vega were injured in the accident.

When you’re driving, you owe other drivers on the road a duty of care. This means you’ll obey traffic laws, such as adhering to the speed limit, driving cautiously, and always signaling before you turn or switch lanes.

But there may be cases where other cars don’t offer you a duty of care. In these situations, you may have to take evasive action to avoid a collision. If there are other cars around you, a swerve or suddenly slamming on the brakes may cause another car crash. It seems like a no-win situation and may even be more confusing when it’s time to determine fault. In the event of a car crash in Ohio, a reliable Cincinnati car accident lawyer from Thomas Law Offices will be able to help you with your case.
