Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio  Cincinnati, OH – Pedestrian Injured in Crash on East McMicken Ave.

Each year, thousands of pedestrians are injured in crashes that take place in Ohio. Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable accident victims on our state’s roadways, as they have no protection from the force and impact of a crash. Additionally, pedestrian crashes normally take place very suddenly and with little warning, making it nearly impossible for the victim to take defensive measures. The outcome of a pedestrian crash is typically serious and can lead to:

  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma and TBI
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Death

Following a pedestrian accident, it is normal to have questions regarding your legal rights and options. Under Ohio’s system of personal injury laws, victims may be entitled to compensation for their lost wages, medical costs, and pain and suffering, among other things. Determining fault for a pedestrian crash is often the first step in evaluating a claim. This issue is often contested, and having a skilled Ohio pedestrian accident lawyer on your side will help put you in the best position to obtain a full recovery.
