Intersection Crashes in Ohio
Statistics show that you are more likely to be involved in a crash while crossing an intersection. Many drivers fail to follow the rules of the road and yield to other vehicles that have the right of way, causing serious intersection collisions in Ohio. There are more than 2.5 million intersection crashes reported each year, accounting for 40% of reported car accidents. Stop signs and traffic lights are meant to make intersections safer, but when drivers fail to obey these devices, they risk causing catastrophic car accidents.
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 who is responsible for causing an Ohio car accident can be held responsible for any resulting injuries. Before you discuss your claim with an insurance company, you should consult with a qualified Cincinnati car crash attorney.
