MOST COMMON EXCUSES THAT THE OTHER PARTY MAKES
WHILE PERSONAL INJURIES ARE OFTEN REFERRED TO AS ACCIDENTS, THEY ARE OFTEN THE RESULT OF ANOTHER PERSON’S RECKLESS OR NEGLIGENT CONDUCT.
We have heard it all when it comes to made up, or even believed, excuses that the negligent party makes in an attempt to pass on the blame. However, whether they claim that the sun was in their eyes or that they were driving on unfamiliar roads, we will hold them accountable. All Ohio drivers must know the rules of the roads and give a reasonable amount of care and attention to the other road users who they are sharing space with. It is not a viable excuse to claim that one of the following occurred and to expect to be let off the hook:
- I was tired from being kept up by the baby last night;
- I was only using my cell phone to answer work emails;
- The rain was hindering visibility;
- Standing water caused a hydroplane;
- The other car came out of nowhere;
- I didn’t see the other car/cyclist/pedestrian; or
- I thought I had the right of way.
If it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the other driver caused the crash, whether they were driving recklessly or not, they will be held accountable.
INCLEMENT WEATHER IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE FOR THE OTHER PARTY TO MAKE
This rule of accountability applies to inclement weather situations as well. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that nine percent of crashes occur in the rain, showing that a disproportionate amount of crashes occur in wet weather because it rains less than nine percent of the day on average. Rain, snow, and sleet reduce friction and visibility, making for more treacherous driving conditions. But this does not give anyone a free pass for causing a wreck. Ohio drivers are expected to slow down, give more space, turn their lights on, and make other necessary adjustments to their driving behavior during inclement weather.
