Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio
The Ohio Department of Public Safety maintains statistics on crashes and injury accidents that take place across Ohio on an annual basis. The Department also keeps historical data on various types of collisions over the years. According to these statistics, more than 14,000 pedestrian accidents took place in Ohio between 2017 and 2022. Many of these accidents resulted in death or serious injuries for victims. The reasons for this are fairly obvious as pedestrian accident victims have little protection from the full impact of a collision. Broken bones, head and neck injuries, and soft tissues injuries such as strains and sprains are all common following a pedestrian crash.
While pedestrian accidents are often very serious in nature, victims should also be aware of their legal rights. Ohio law may provide protection for those who have been hurt in a pedestrian collision. Following a crash, it is important to reach out to a local attorney as soon as possible for advice regarding your situation. If you believe you have a case, you should seek to protect your rights as soon as possible.
