Car accidents comprise the vast majority of personal injury cases in the greater Cleveland area and throughout the United States. The most common cause of auto accidents is driver negligence. Cell phones, GPS navigation screens, satellite radio systems, or simply failing to pay attention are just a few of the things that can lead to distracted driving. Unfortunately, these distractions can often lead to serious car accidents resulting in everything from soft tissue injuries to catastrophic injuries – or even wrongful death.
According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, there were 290,216 Ohio traffic crashes in 2011, 12,639 of which were alcohol related. That equates to nearly 800 car accidents every single day, 34 of which were alcohol related. Approximately 1,000 Ohioans lose their lives in car accidents every year. These figures are far too high, which is why distracted and impaired drivers must be held accountable.
Some of the most common car accident injuries are:
1. spine, back, and neck injuries such as whiplash,
2. head injuries including concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI),
3. broken bones including the wrists, arms, ankles, legs and ribs,
4. lacerations and cuts,
5. internal injuries such as internal bleeding or organ laceration, and
6. paralysis, coma, and even wrongful death.
These injuries and damages often result in medical bills, pain, suffering, emotional distress, time off work, lost wages, and can even cripple the victim’s ability to earn a living, care for themselves, and support their spouses and children. This is one of the reasons that the Ohio Financial Responsibility Law requires that all Ohio drivers carry a minimum of $25,000.00 in automobile insurance.
Unfortunately, approximately 20% of Ohio drivers break the law and drive around without automobile insurance. Even more carry just the bare minimum $25,000.00 in insurance coverage. This is why it is so important for drivers to carry uninsured motorist coverage and underinsured motorist coverage as a part of their own policy – these will compensate you in the event you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver.
