Ohio Auto Accident Lawyer investigating preventable car accidents for injured plaintiffs nationwide


According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2 million people are injured. Furthermore, more than 33,000 deaths occur each year due to auto accidents. This makes road accidents a leading cause of death in the U.S.

In 2015, over 35,000 car-accident deaths occurred in America, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Of those deaths, 1,110 occurred in Ohio.

Most injuries and deaths on the road are preventable. Those injured in accidents may have been injured through no fault of their own. However, many victims are left with medical bills, lost wages, physical and emotional pain and suffering, and, in many cases, permanent injury or death. Following a serious car accident, victims should contact an experienced Ohio auto accident lawyer to investigate.

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated and experienced Cincinnati catastrophic injury attorney and Ohio auto accident lawyer. He is well-versed in the science and economic impact such an injury or death has on the victim’s life and family.


When to Contact an Ohio Auto Accident Lawyer

  1. Distracted Driving—the number one cause of car accidents involve distracted motorists that divert their attention from the road. Drivers may talk on a cell phone, send a text message, adjust the radio or eat food.
  2. Speeding and Reckless Driving—truthfully, traveling above the speed limit is an easy way to cause a car accident. The faster you drive, the less time you have to prevent an auto accident.
  3. Impaired Driving—drivers under the influence of alcohol cause many car accidents every day. Almost a third (30 percent) of fatal car accidents in the U.S. are alcohol-related. Also, drug-related accidents are common.
  4. Ignoring Traffic Signals—drivers that run red lights and stop signs risk causing accidents and wrongful death because they often cause high-speed side-impact collisions.
  5. Inexperienced Drivers—young drivers and teenagers lack road experience. They end up causing many car accidents. Crashes involving drivers ages 16-20 kill nearly 8,000 people each year.
  6. Reckless Driving—Also, examples include unsafe lane changes, improper turns, tailgating, and racing.
  7. Driver Fatigue—many drivers on the road are often too tired to properly operate their vehicle. They make poor driving decisions and create dangerous situations.

    Contributing Causes to Serious Auto Accidents

    Car accidents are often the result of more than one factor. Serious auto accidents lead to investigations for contributing causes. Since most auto insurance policies are not capable of compensating someone injured in a catastrophic accident, it is advisable to contact and hire an experienced personal injury lawyer to properly investigate the case. An Ohio auto accident lawyer can advise you on all the available claims and insurance issues. Accidents and injuries may be directly related to factors such as:


Common Injuries in Auto Accidents

Auto accidents severely injure 11 people every day in Cincinnati. About 3 auto-related deaths occur in Ohio every day. Some common injuries include the following:

  1. Orthopedic Injuries
  2. Burn Injuries
  3. Spinal Cord Injuries
  4. Traumatic Brain Injuries

    Compensation Available in Auto Accidents

If a negligent driver or other defendant causes an auto accident and injures another individual, the negligent party is responsible for all injuries and economic loss that results from the accident.

Therefore, the injured party is entitled to compensation under Ohio Law. Compensation may include property damages, payment of medical care (past and future), loss of past earnings, loss of future earning potential, loss of enjoyment of ordinary activity, and pain and suffering.

In recent years, The Lyon Firm has obtained large settlements in wrongful death cases on behalf of families who suffered the loss of life, and also of those who suffered severe brain injuries during an accident. The Lyon Firm also obtained a $1.5 million settlement for an underinsured motorist claim on behalf of a family who suffered the loss of their father when a distracted motorist crossed a double yellow line while speaking on the phone.
