Car Incidents in Ohio

Each day, innocent individuals sustain injuries due to vehicular collisions. Unfortunately, the suffered injuries continue to impact their lives forever. Far too often, these accidents are completely preventable. We continue to see innocent people hurt as a result of driver negligence. Some of the most common causes of collisions across our state include:

  • Failure to Yield: Instances where drivers neglect to give right of way to pedestrians frequently lead to catastrophic outcomes. Sadly, pedestrian incidents often occur when drivers disregard stop signs or crosswalks.
  • Distractions: Motorists who divert their attention from the road risk colliding with pedestrians in close proximity.
  • Impairment: Drivers under the influence of substances are less capable of making sound judgments, increasing the likelihood of striking pedestrians in their vicinity.
