Pedestrian Accidents in Ohio
Serious pedestrian accidents take place daily across Ohio. Pedestrians are at greater risk of suffering from life-threatening injuries in the event of a collision. In fact, statistics show that pedestrians are nearly 1.5 times more likely to be killed in a crash. In 2017, there were 5,977 pedestrians killed in car accidents across the United States. That is an average of one fatality every 88 minutes.
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.
