Fatal Head-On Collisions in Ohio
Head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road deaths each year, 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 oncoming traffic, they run the risk of colliding head-on with another vehicle, which can be deadly 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 a difficult situation, and recovering can be a 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.
