After car accidents generally
For Cleveland, Ohio, residents that are victims of another’s negligence, like the Cuyahoga Falls man here appears to be, Ohio law can help. Specifically, through a personal injury lawsuit, car accident victims can seek civil justice for their injuries that resulted from the negligence of another.
