High-Speed Crashes in Ohio
Speeding is a factor in many deadly car accidents in the United States. Over the past twenty years, speeding has been involved in roughly one-third of traffic fatalities across the country. There were a total of 9,378 people killed by speeding drivers in 2018 alone, with 25 people dying each day on average. Despite the known risks of speeding, many drivers continue to exceed the speed limit or driver faster than permitted by roadway conditions.
In Ohio, other drivers owe a duty to use reasonable care when operating a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, many drivers in the state breach this duty and cause catastrophic car accidents. The resulting damages following a car accident can impact a victim’s life. The driver responsible for causing an Ohio car accident can be held responsible for any resulting injuries.
