Ohio can be a dangerous place for motorists. According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, more than 250,000 accidents are reported annually on our state’s roadways. Many of these crashes involve innocent victims and are caused by negligent drivers. Some frequent causes of car accidents in Ohio are:

  • Speeding
  • OVI or operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • Distraction
  • Failing to yield at stop lights and stop signs

Each crash must be closely investigated in order to determine the cause and who should be held responsible. Under Ohio law, if you were not at fault or were only partially at fault for the accident, you could be entitled to compensation. The law allows you to seek compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and potentially more.
