Car Accidents in Forest Park, Ohio
Each year, more than 66,000 car accidents take place in the state of Ohio. These accidents send tens of thousands of people to area hospitals where they have to go through emergency medical services for their injuries. Many victims are rushed to undergo surgery and have to spend days or even weeks in hospitals to recover.
Depending on the type and severity of an injury, many victims may have to go through therapy and rehabilitation. Although there are many treatment options available for victims injured in car accidents, they come with no promise of a full recovery. Instead, we see thousands of people left with permanent disabilities following their accidents.
Although most motorists are careful, we see many accidents take place due to the negligent actions of other motorists. When victims are injured by drunk or impaired drivers, drivers who are distracted, and drivers who engage in other reckless driving behaviors, they may have legal options available to help them get justice following the accident.
