Car accidents are a leading cause of death

Ohio residents spend a good portion of their lives on or near streets and highways. Motor vehicles have become the standard mode of transportation in the United States, and it is difficult to completely avoid interacting with them either as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian.

One significant concern for many people is that of car accidents. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, traffic accidents are the eighth leading cause of death worldwide. While much has been done in the U.S. and other countries to improve road safety, including strict penalties on driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, involvement in a car accident is still a major risk.

While car accidents can obviously lead to death, they can also cause serious injuries that may have lifelong effects on victims. For example, a car accident victim may have to be hospitalized or in a rehabilitation center for a significant amount of time. In addition to the cost of medical and nursing care, people may be out of work for a period of time, which can have an adverse effect on their career and finances.

Other potential consequences of motor vehicle accidents caused by the negligence of another driver include chronic pain and lifelong disabilities that can make day-to-day living difficult. Family members may also suffer as they adjust to having to provide care to a relative who is convalescing or who becomes permanently disabled. In such cases, a personal injury attorney may be able to assist victims and their families in receiving compensation for the losses that they have incurred.
