Pedestrian Crashes in Ohio
Pedestrian deaths have managed to reach all-time highs in recent years, according to recent statistics. Pedestrians are 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a traffic accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Despite the fact that pedestrians have the very same right to the road as anyone, many drivers fail to keep an eye out for them, resulting in deadly traffic accidents.
No matter where you live, you will have to share the road with pedestrians on occasion. In Ohio, drivers have a duty to all roadway users, including those traveling by foot. Many people in the state prefer to walk to restaurants, jog, or just enjoy a beautiful day, and pedestrians have legal rights. That means that if you are injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation with the help of a qualified Cleveland car accident lawyer.
