Car Accidents in Cincinnati, Ohio
Each year, more than 65,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Ohio. In many instances, victims require emergency medical attention for their injuries. Although we think we know what to expect following a motor vehicle accident, there is no way to truly prepare for the mental, physical, and financial consequences victims are forced to endure. In many instances, victims are left with severe internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries that require emergency medical attention and months of therapy and rehabilitation.
In many cases, victims are harmed in crashes caused by negligent and reckless drivers. Some of the leading causes of collisions in our state include drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drivers who are distracted by cell phones and other objects, and drivers who are engaging in reckless driving behaviors.
