Car Accidents in Ohio

Ohio is no stranger to vehicle collisions. In 2022 alone, more than 265,000 auto accidents were reported on our roadways. The truth is that a motor vehicle accident can have a sudden and severe impact on your life. This is especially true if you suffer injuries. Unfortunately, we see thousands of people injured in car accidents across our state every year.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you have the ability to pursue a legal claim for compensation against the other party involved in the accident. When it comes to recovering compensation for your damages, such as medical costs and vehicle repair expenses, it is important to prove that the defendant is responsible.

In Ohio, compensation is awarded to injured parties based on the modified comparative negligence doctrine. Should you share any responsibility for the accident, the amount of compensation that you recover will be reduced in proportion to the degree of fault you share. For this reason, it is vital to have a team of dedicated and compassionate car accident attorneys by your side throughout the legal process. Your attorney will be able to help you pursue a claim and conduct an investigation to ensure you have all of the evidence you need to prove your case against the defendant.
