Car Accidents in Ohio
Car accidents occur far too frequently in the state of Ohio. These accidents leave thousands of people injured every single month. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents that we see on our roads are preventable. There are thousands of instances where people are hurt as a result of drivers who are speeding, fail to yield, and are distracted.
Road construction is another major factor in many of the accidents that take place across the state of Ohio. When drivers do not slow down or operate their vehicles in a safe manner while traveling through construction areas, it can lead to devastating accidents.
