Ohio Car Accidents  Batavia, OH – Car Accident with Injuries Reported on SR-32 Overpass

There are more than four million registered motor vehicles in Ohio. With a substantial number of these cars on the road on a daily basis, the odds of being involved in a crash can be quite high. Between 2017 and 2022, more than 250,000 car accidents were reported across our state each year. About 25% of these collisions also led to reported injuries or deaths. While driving is a routine daily activity, it can also be very hazardous to motorists.

The cause of every Ohio car accident must be closely investigated. In most instances, a car accident will be caused by a careless or reckless driver. This includes drivers who disobey traffic laws by exceeding speed limits, driving under the influence, texting while driving, and more. These careless motorists place both themselves and others at risk of being involved in a major crash.
