Injury Accidents in Ohio  Dayton, OH – Two Officers Hurt in Crash on W. Third Street at North Plaza

Car accidents in Ohio result in more than 60,000 injuries every year. When a crash occurs, there is about a 20% chance of one or more motorists receiving injuries. The typical cause of an Ohio car accident is driver negligence and includes speeding, distraction, impairment, failure to yield the right of way, and malfunctioning vehicle equipment. Unfortunately, a large number of innocent victims will be injured in these crashes.
While a car accident can turn your life upside down, there is hope available. Under Ohio’s car accident laws, crash victims may be able to receive compensation for their injuries. The amount of compensation depends upon a number of factors. Having an attorney by your side will ensure that you are able to fully protect your rights and maximize your recovery.
