No one knows what they may face as they head out the door to start their day. Most accidents are completely unpredictable and can happen in the blink of an eye. Although traffic accidents are daily occurrences throughout Ohio, is there anyone who truly expects to be involved in a crash? Each year, thousands of people spend long weeks in hospital after being involved in accidents. Many accident victims lose the ability to live or work as they used to.
