Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio
Walking is a great way to get around, enjoy the day, or even limit your carbon footprint, but pedestrians can sustain serious injuries in the event of a crash. From 2013 to 2018, there were 717 pedestrians killed in accidents across Ohio, and pedestrian fatalities in the state are on the rise, increasing from 88 in 2013 to 145 in 2017. Thousands more across the state suffer injuries in pedestrian accidents, with 2,631 pedestrians reportedly being injured in Ohio pedestrian crashes in 2018.
Pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when involved in a crash with a motor vehicle and are more likely to suffer from life-threatening injuries. Unlike those traveling in passenger cars, pedestrians have little protection from the full impact of an accident, and the resulting injuries can be life-changing. Drivers are required to yield the right of way and share the road with pedestrians. An Ohio pedestrian injury lawyer can help recover financial compensation for your injuries after being hit by a negligent driver.
Few people expect to be seriously injured in an Ohio pedestrian accident, but thousands of pedestrians are injured across the state each year and require help to pursue legal compensation for their damages. Many injured parties are unsure of how to seek compensation for their injuries after an accident. The legal team at the Green Law Firm is here to fight to ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
