If a person has been bitten by a dog, Ohio law may allow for the pursuit of compensation. However, how a bite victim would go about getting compensation depends on the history of the dog. If the canine has a recorded history of biting, an individual could choose to pursue a negligence case, which may allow for punitive damages. A negligence claim is generally harder to prove, which is why many choose to pursue a strict liability claim.
Since Daylight Saving Time ended in Ohio at 2:00 a.m. on Nov. 4, many of the state's residents will be driving home from work in the dark. This is a reason to be concerned because a study carried out by the National Safety Council reveals that the chances of crashing are approximately three times higher at night. Experts say that nighttime accident risks are higher because of reduced visibility, light glare and fatigue.
