Deadly Bicycle Crashes in Ohio
Across the state of Ohio in the year 2013, there were a combined total of 1,548 people who were killed or injured while riding a bicycle. A total of 19 of these collisions resulted in fatalities, 216 persons were rendered unable to function as a consequence of their injuries, and the vast majority of bicycle accidents resulted in the biker having injuries that were not incapacitating.
The passing of a loved one is always a tragic event, regardless of the circumstances. Your family may go through an even more difficult time emotionally when they learn that their loss was the consequence of the carelessness or neglect of another else. If you and your family relied on the victim for financial assistance, you may now find yourself in a tough financial situation.
