Lawyers Serving Columbus, Ohio
Personal injury can be a broad term, encompassing a vast array of incidences that have caused damage, pain and injury due to another individual’s negligent actions. It is the result of a tort, or a civil wrong committed against an individual which is recognized as an illegal and harmful act.
According to the National Center for Personal Injury Protection and Control, accident injuries in the United States result in an annual fatality rate of over 90,000 people. In Ohio, auto accidents are the most common type of injury, with almost 1,200 people killed in vehicle accidents during 2008, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
