When you get into your vehicle each day, it is probably a fairly routine event. You probably never think you will need a Columbus car accident lawyer, but there are times when the reckless or careless actions of other drivers can cause major harm to you or your loved ones.

At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we are ready to step in and help you through this. Let our team examine every aspect of the crash. The goal is to secure the compensation you need for all of your injury-related expenses so you can focus on recovering.

What The Statistics Show Us

When we look at the latest reporting year of data available for Ohio, we can see that there was a total of 303,298 vehicle crashes. Out of those, there were:

  • 1,179 fatalities
  • More than 75,000 injury crashes

When it comes to vehicle crashes, we realize that most incidents only cause minor injuries or property damage. However, it is not uncommon for us to deal with the following injuries in the aftermath of a crash:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions

The cost of caring for these injuries can vary. For injuries that require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, a victim can see their medical bills rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, medical bills are only the beginning of the overall accident costs. Hidden expenses like lost income if a victim cannot work, travel to and from treatment, as well as caregiver costs must all be factored into the overall compensation a victim receives from an insurance company or negligent party.

How Do Crashes Happen?

In many cases, vehicle crashes are caused by the negligence of another driver. This can include drivers who willfully driver over the speed limit or ignore other traffic laws (failing to yield or stop at stoplights).

We also know that there were nearly 12,000 alcohol-related crashes during Ohio’s latest reporting year. Out of those, there were 314 deaths and nearly 7,000 injuries. Alcohol-impaired drivers were involved in over 26% of all traffic fatalities. Distracted driving can be just as dangerous. When someone is focused on their phone screen instead of the roadway, major crashes can occur.
