Legally, a motor vehicle accident occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, a stationary object, or debris in the road. In Ohio, bicycles are also considered vehicles. Motor vehicle accidents may involve passenger cars, semi-trucks or tractor-trailers, passenger vans, delivery vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and other motorized vehicles.

Ohio is a fault state for motor vehicle accidents. This means that all drivers are required to demonstrate financial responsibility for any accidents they may cause. This is typically accomplished by purchasing liability auto insurance with the mandatory minimum policy limits. If you are injured in a crash caused by another driver, you are entitled to seek compensation from that driver.
How Do You Recover Compensation for a Motor Vehicle Accident?
After a traffic crash that was someone else’s fault, you have several options for pursuing compensation:
- File a claim with your own insurance company. Your carrier will likely file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company to recover its payout for your claim.
- File a third-party claim with the other driver’s insurance company if the other driver was clearly at fault for the accident.
- File a personal injury lawsuit in civil court. The case could be settled at any point before trial.
