Car Accidents in Ohio
Car accidents throughout the state of Ohio leave more than 1,400 people injured every week. Although many accidents result in minor cuts and abrasions, tens of thousands of people experience brain or spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and other traumas that negatively impact their abilities to work and perform various tasks. These preventable accidents are often caused by the negligent actions of motorists. When drivers text or call while driving, drive intoxicated, and engage in other negligent actions, it drastically increases the chances of them losing control of their vehicles and causing harm to others. The aftermath of a collision is an extremely emotional time. Not only are victims left to endure overwhelming pain and suffering, but they often face towering medical bills while being unable to work.
