Pedestrian Accidents in Cincinnati, Ohio
Statistics from 2009 to 2018 show that more than 5000 pedestrians were seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Ohio. In many instances, injured parties are forced into area hospitals where they have to go through emergency medical treatment. Although Ohio ranks highly among the safest states in the country for pedestrians, we continue to see the negative impact these accidents have on families across our area. In many instances, victims are left with severe injuries that negatively impact their health and wellbeing. Some of the leading causes of pedestrian accidents we see are:
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians
- Drivers who are distracted
- Defective and malfunctioning vehicles
Although we hope everyone is able to recover from their injuries, this is not always the case.
