Dangerous Ohio Roads & Car Accident Injuries

Auto Accidents and Road fatalities linked to Dangerous Ohio Roads


Recent years have seen more auto accident and road fatalities than ever before in Ohio and across the nation. The annual surge in road deaths contradicts all the new safety features on cars and trucks like electronic stability control, rearview cameras, adaptive cruise control, automatic braking and blind-spot monitoring. It seems the safety systems can only prevent so much reckless driving, and perhaps drivers are putting too much faith in car safety systems and paying less attention to the roads.

The vast majority of car accidents and fatalities on dangerous Ohio roads are preventable. Regardless, accident victims are left with large medical expenses, many months worth of lost wages, physical and emotional pain and suffering, and, in many cases, permanent injuries or death.

Following car accidents on dangerous Ohio roads, injured victims should contact an experienced Cincinnati catastrophic lawyer to investigate. Joe Lyon is an experienced Ohio auto accident attorney, well-versed in the science and economic impact such an injury or death has on the victim’s life and family.
