Deadly Head-On Crashes in Ohio
Head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road deaths each year despite accounting for less than 2% of all reported car accidents. The majority of these collisions are caused by drivers who swerve into opposing traffic lanes due to distraction or negligence. When a driver merges into opposing traffic, he or she runs the risk of colliding head-on with another vehicle, which can be fatal even at low speeds.
After a loved one’s life is tragically cut short due to the negligence of another, family members are often left in excruciating pain, and recovering can be a difficult battle for those left to pick up the pieces. People are grieving by nature, and filing a lawsuit is often the last thing on their minds.
A wrongful death lawsuit, on the other hand, may be able to assist your family in recovering financial compensation as a result of your tragic loss. Using the services of an attorney can help you win your case.
