Car Accidents in Ohio
Automobile accidents in Ohio are often devastating. These accidents take the lives of hundreds of people annually. Thousands more are left with serious injuries that affect every aspect of their lives. It is all too common to see victims left with spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries as a result of accidents.
After being harmed in a motor vehicle accident, injured parties are able to seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim against the person responsible. In Ohio, the laws of negligence follow the modified comparative negligence doctrine. This allows the people harmed by accidents are able to recover compensation for the damages that they suffered as a result of another person’s negligence. However, the amount of fault that they contributed to the accident will offset the money that they are able to recover. If a person is deemed to be more than 50 percent at fault for the accident, they will not be able to recover compensation at all.
