Reckless Driving Crashes in Ohio
Ohio drivers have a bad reputation for driving erratically, and careless driving is a leading cause of fatal collisions. No matter how careful you are behind the wheel, a reckless driver’s actions are unpredictable. Despite the existence of traffic laws, reckless driving results in approximately 13,000 fatal collisions each year, with human error accounting for more than 90% of all recorded automobile collisions.
Many car accident victims struggle to understand their rights in time to defend themselves after a collision, and the moments immediately following a collision are crucial in determining whether or not your compensation claim will be successful. It is difficult to file a personal injury claim because most people are unaware of state laws, insurance coverage, or what to do if they are injured in a car accident. You are not required to pursue a personal injury claim on your own, fortunately. Instead, you can hire an experienced attorney to help you recover any compensation you may have lost. A knowledgeable Akron catastrophic injury attorney can help you file a claim and recover damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.
