Ohio’s Move Over Law

PrintWe have all witnessed when someone is pulled over on the side of the road, and passing cars continue to drive past without switching lanes. While this may seem harmless at the time, it can produce dangerous results. Ohio implemented the Move Over law in 2004, but since then, the law has been revised and was expanded in December 2013. The Move Over law requires drivers to move to a different lane when passing any vehicle with flashing or rotating lights that is stopped or parked on the roadside. The law applies to all interstates and state highways throughout Ohio. It is designed to protect everyone who works on Ohio roads and everyone who travels on them.

The law applies to every vehicle, including road construction, maintenance, and utility crews on the roadside. Across the United States, hundreds of people are injured or killed every year by being struck by a vehicle after pulling onto the side of a road or highway. According to the Move Over Law website, on average, these “struck-by” accidents kill one tow-truck driver every six days, 23 highway workers every month, one law enforcement official every month, and five firefighters every year. Most work zone crash fatalities are the motorists. These accidents can be avoided by following this law, obeying the speed limit, and using extra caution in any work zone areas.

The state understands that sometimes it may not be safe or possible to change lanes due to traffic, weather conditions, or lane restrictions. In those situations, you must slow down, drive cautiously, and be prepared to stop. Officials will give you a ticket if you do not comply with the Move Over law. The law can be enforced by any level of officer, including state highway patrols, local police, and county deputies. It is considered a misdemeanor, and violators can be fined anywhere from $300 to $1,000 based on the violation.

If you do not have a law like this in your state, try following similar rules. These kinds of accidents can certainly be avoided if the right precautions are taken. For more information about Ohio’s Move Over law, visit MoveOver.Ohio.Gov.

When Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

accident

While some people have experience with lawyers, others do not have any at all. Those who have not been involved with a lawyer in the past can be hesitant when deciding if they need a lawyer. According to Nolo.com, if any of the following situations happen to you, the skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer are almost certainly worth the time and money it takes to have a lawyer represent you.

Long-Term or Permanently Disabling Injuries

Some accidents can result in injuries that significantly affect your physical capabilities or appearance for an extended period of time, or even permanently. Figuring out how much a serious injury is worth can be difficult. If you believe your injuries might be long term or permanent, you should contact an attorney.

Severe Injuries

The amount of your accident compensation is determined by the severity of your injuries. The severity of your injuries is measured by the amount of your medical bills, the type of injuries you have, and the length of time it takes for you to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation increases, the range within which that compensation may fall becomes wider. In such cases, it is worth the expense to have a lawyer handle your claim to make sure you receive compensation at the highest end of the range.

Medical Malpractice

Injuries or illness can occur due to careless, unprofessional, or incompetent treatment at the hands of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical provider. The medical questions and legal rules involved in these cases are complex, so it is recommended that you hire an attorney with experience in medical malpractice cases.

Toxic Exposure

In the increasingly chemical world, you can become ill from exposure to contaminants in the air, soil, water, products, or food. Claims based on such exposure are difficult to prove and often require scientific data. Chemical companies, food producers, and other industries have taken measures to protect themselves from such legal issues, and the required evidence can be hard to come by, so you will want to get expert help.

When an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay

In many instances, regardless of the nature of your injury, the amount of your medical bills, or the result of lost income, insurance companies either refuse to pay or refuse to pay reasonable amounts to settle claims.  In such cases it is imperative that you hire a lawyer in order to force the insurance company or government agency to make a fair settlement offer. In some cases, a lawyer can negotiate a settlement for you for more than you originally thought possible.

Finding a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

A good way to find a lawyer is to ask friends, injury specialists, or other lawyers for referrals. You can also do your own research and interview potential firms. It is important to base your decision on information about the lawyer’s education, experience, and general philosophy of practicing law to ensure that they will be a good fit for you and your case.
