According to the Department of Transportation, there is enough state, county and municipal roadway in Ohio to circle the globe four and half times. That's 113,000 miles of asphalt and gravel.
Unfortunately, that number goes hand-in-hand with some more sobering statistics. On average there are three fatal car, truck or motorcycle crashes each day in Ohio, according to DOT estimates. Many more are injured or suffer a loss of property due to auto accidents.
Financial compensation may be available in these cases, but victims should always hire a qualified, professional law firm to help them with any traffic accident case involving injury or death.

Common sites in Ohio for car, truck and motorcycle crashes include:
- Ohio car wrecks
According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), Ohio was among the most dangerous states for drivers in 2007.
In cases that involve serious injury or even death, the need for an attorney is obvious. But even in cases involving clear fault, insurance companies will often dispute liability and the extent of your injuries. People involved in an Ohio car wreck can trust us to guide them through the process.
- Ohio Truck Accidents
According to the DOT, Ohio boasts the fifth highest volume of truck traffic in the United States. Accidents that involve 18 wheelers, tractor trailers or even small trucks often create a set of legal circumstances different from a standard car crash.
For victims, truck crashes often result in serious injury or loss of life and legal issues that result can include multi-party liability, filing suit against a company or even criminal charges. In Ohio, a set of unique laws govern semi trucks and other commercial vehicles. You need a tough-minded, competent attorney to help you. We at Miraldi and Barrett can provide that help.
- Ohio Motorcycle Accidents
Like most states, Ohio has a set of strict laws for motorcyclists. While most passionate riders view their bikes as a necessary expression of personal freedom, they're also conscientious stewards of the road. Unfortunately, other drivers sometimes aren't so careful.
The potential for injury in a motorcycle wreck is obviously great. If you or a family member have been injured or killed while riding a motorcycle, our team of lawyers will understand your situation and respond quickly to your needs.
