Car Accidents in Ohio
It is easy to take our safety for granted when we get into a vehicle. However, car accidents are very prevalent across Ohio and can take place in just a matter of seconds. Based on statistics, there are more than 600 reported car accidents across our state each day. These accidents do not always lead to injuries but some of them do. When an injury accident occurs, it can cause serious disruptions to the lives of victims, including major property damage and personal injuries.
The overwhelming majority of Ohio car accidents take place due to driver negligence. There are many types of negligence, including:
