Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio
Reports provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that more than 5,000 pedestrians are fatally injured across the United States each year. Over 75,000 more are left with injuries that cause them overwhelming pain and suffering. Although we like to think that we are invincible, hundreds of people in the Cleveland area sustain life-altering injuries in pedestrian accidents each year.
Not only do pedestrian accidents result in mental and physical pain and suffering, but many victims are unable to return to work for several weeks or even months following their accidents. To add to the troubles victims face are tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills related to their injuries. When victims are injured in accidents consequent to the actions of other parties involved, the state of Ohio provides them legal options to collect compensation to help them move forward and get the care they need for their injuries.
