When it comes to motor vehicle crashes, many people assume that most accidents happen on major freeways. It is a logical conclusion, given the high volume of traffic and heavy vehicles that move each day through Ohio on these highways.
Thousands of individuals get hurt and die in car crashes every year. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that 37,461 people died in traffic collisions in 2016. This is the highest number of car accident fatalities since 2007. The fact that there are so many fatal accidents is sad and disturbing.
There is a reasonable chance that you will be involved in a vehicle accident at some point in your life. Rear-end collisions, for example, are among the most common traffic accidents in our country.
