Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio

Every single day, people’s lives are turned upside down due to car accidents, with pedestrians often bearing the brunt of these tragic events. It’s a sad reality that many pedestrians suffer serious injuries that change their lives in an instant.

In Ohio, there are several common reasons why these pedestrian accidents happen. Here’s what frequently leads to these unfortunate incidents:

  • Not Stopping for Pedestrians: Sometimes, drivers fail to give pedestrians the right of way. This failure can lead to terrible accidents, especially when drivers do not stop at stop signs or crosswalks as they should.
  • Distraction: Drivers who aren’t focused on the road can easily miss seeing pedestrians, leading to collisions.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Alcohol or drugs impair a driver’s ability to make safe decisions. This impairment dramatically increases the chance of hitting a pedestrian.
