Car Accidents in Ohio
A serious crash can happen at almost any time and leave you or a loved one with serious injuries. Car accidents are a common cause of personal injury claims in Ohio. Approximately 36,560 persons were killed in traffic accidents in 2018, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Most of these accidents were the result of driving mistakes.
In the event that another person or entity in Cleveland caused your harm by their negligent actions, the law of the state empowers you to hold them liable for your injuries. You have the legal right to file a claim for financial compensation via the civil courts against the party that was responsible for the accident. If you are successful in your lawsuit, you may be entitled to reimbursement for your past medical expenses, lost earnings, and other losses.
Your legal dispute will probably be settled out of court if the party that was at fault agrees to do so.
