Cleveland, OH - Three Hurt After Driver Crashed into Food Stand at Roberto Clemente Park

In Cuyahoga County, there were a total of 59 people killed in motor vehicle accidents in 2018. A total of 58 of these incidents took place in urban areas, whilst just one took place in a rural setting. The weekend is the most hazardous time to be out on the road, as 48.6 percent of all fatal car accidents take place during the course of the three days that make up the weekend.

Unfortunately, incidents involving motor vehicles are extremely frequent all around the United States. Even if you exercise extreme caution at all times, there is still a possibility that you may be confronted with the problems described in this passage at some point. When you are hurt in a car accident, there is more at risk than just the cost of repairing your vehicle and paying your medical costs. It is important that you come back to work as soon as possible so that you can provide for your family. Being involved in a collision with another vehicle might have catastrophic effects. Nevertheless, the process of going through a vehicle accident case on your own without the assistance of an accident lawyer is much more difficult.

After a collision, a competent Cleveland auto accident lawyer may be able to help clients establish their legal rights by helping them file a claim for damages.
