With different and varying road conditions to navigate, Ohio is a difficult state to ride a motorcycle in. From Toledo to Cleveland to Columbus there are country roads, freeways, and heavily populated downtown areas. The weather conditions can vary from warm, cold, rain, and snow. With many winding hills and sharp turns, many unlit two-lane country roads, there are a lot of hazards for accidents.
When a motorcyclist and/or passenger has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in Ohio, the accident victim and their family members are left with many consequences: medical bills, lost income (lost wages), and other costs. A motorcycle accident lawyer in Ohio can help the motorcycle accident victim recover. When the motorcycle accident causes death to the rider or passenger, an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help the family get fully compensated for their losses.
The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is the failure of motorists (other vehicles – cars and trucks) to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic.
How many motorcycle riders get into accidents? In 2013 there were 4,668 motorcycle fatalities. Approximately 56 out of every 100,000 motorcycles was involved in a fatal crash, compared with only 9 out of every 100,000 cars, according to (NHTSA).
