Although they are routinely referred to as “accidents,” the fact is that almost all motor vehicle collisions are caused by an act or omission of one of the parties involved in the crash. There are many causes for car collisions, including distracted driving, drunk driving and even drowsy driving, among others. It is a sad reality that each year there are thousands of motor vehicle “accidents” in Ohio.
And, although many car accidents are so-called “fender benders,” some cause severe injuries for the drivers and passengers involved, while other lead to fatalities. There is no doubt that those who have been involved in a serious car accident are likely looking for answers in the aftermath of such a traumatic event.
When a car accident is caused by a negligent or reckless driver, the injured parties involved in the crash may be able to pursue financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. If successful, the compensation victims recover could be used to pay for the sudden and unexpected medical bills that start to pile up in the weeks and months after the car accident, as well as other financial needs.
