Car Accidents in Ohio
No one ever expects to be involved in a car accident. However, the reality is that crashes occur quite often and when we least expect them to occur. Each day, more than 600 car accidents are reported in Ohio. Many of these collisions involve innocent motorists who were simply minding their business at the time of the accident. Careless and reckless drivers play a major role in a large number of Ohio car accidents. While precautions can be taken to lower the risk of an accident, not all crashes are preventable due to the actions of other drivers.
