Pedestrian accidents in Ohio can lead to serious and devastating injuries. According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, about 4,000 pedestrians are involved in crashes each year across our state. More than 80% of these accidents will lead to injuries and, in most cases, the injuries will be serious in nature. Pedestrians have very little protection from the impact of an accident and often have little time to avoid a crash.
