Over $1 Million Dollars For Young Woman Injured In Cincinnati Car Crash

A driver ran a red light in Over-The-Rhine and struck another vehicle injuring the five passengers inside his car and the two people inside the vehicle he struck. Sadly, the driver who ran the red light did not have enough insurance to fairly compensate each of the seven injured people involved in the crash. Uninsured / underinsured automobile coverage was also limited. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) conducted an investigation which concluded a local bar was systematically serving underage and intoxicated individuals, including the at-fault driver and his passengers involved in this crash. Representing one of the injured passengers, Charlie M. Rittgers and Matt Nakajima pursued a Dram Shop action against the bar. They were the only attorneys involved in the crash to pursue the bar despite the ATF investigation.

Ohio driver charged with OVI after allegedly turning himself in

When an individual is charged for an alleged crime, he or she may anxiously await what may come next for their situation. The stress and anxiety of their circumstances may make them feel as if they are stuck in a situation without knowing how to properly handle it. Luckily, many individuals who have been charged with OVI or other allegations may have options that could help ease the stress of their state-of-affairs and help them make better informed decisions.

Better understanding of a legal predicament may help parties feel less overwhelmed.

It was recently reported that one man in Ohio was taken into custody for alleged drunk driving, and if convicted, it could be the man's 14th offense.

The clerk reportedly stated that the man was intoxicated and -- despite his multiple OVI offenses -- was about to continue traveling.

When an individual has been accused of driving under the influence, he or she will likely face a potentially confusing time.

Exploring viable defense options may help make the situation more clear.

Situations in which a driver has been accused of operating a vehicle while impaired can potentially lead to parties wanting more information about their circumstances.
