Cleveland, OH – Crash on Metro Health Dr Leaves Pedestrian Hurt

Cleveland, OH (March 19, 2024) – On March 16, the Cleveland Police Department, firefighters, and emergency medical services were all called to the scene of an automobile accident that sent one person to a local hospital with injuries during the evening hours.

Just after 10:50 p.m., a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle in the 2500 block of Metro Health Drive. The pedestrian, who has not been identified to the public, was injured as a result of the accident. The victim was treated at the scene briefly before being transported to an area hospital for further medical care. At this time, investigations into the accident are ongoing.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time.

Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio

Pedestrian accidents cause hundreds of injuries annually in Ohio. Sadly, many of these incidents are avoidable, often resulting from negligence, such as failure to yield, running red lights, or disregarding stop signs.

In cases where drivers are speeding during pedestrian accidents, victims are at a higher risk of sustaining severe and life-threatening injuries. Trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, and severe compound fractures are, unfortunately, common outcomes of such accidents. Following injuries in a pedestrian accident, victims retain the option to pursue personal injury claims against those accountable, seeking financial relief for medical expenses, lost earnings, and more.

Taking immediate action to contact a Cleveland pedestrian accident attorney is crucial. Your lawyer can assist you in pursuing compensation from the negligent party.

To succeed, you must demonstrate the presence of negligence at the time of the accident, indicating that the driver owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, causing the crash, and resulting in damages to you. While this process may appear straightforward, insurance companies often do everything possible to deny injured parties’ rightful claims. For this reason, it is imperative to work with a dedicated and trusted legal team to significantly improve your chances of obtaining justice.
