1. What to do after a car accident?

The first thing you should do after an auto accident is seek medical attention. Even if you don’t think your injuries are severe, sometimes it takes time for injuries to present themselves. Without a doctor’s opinion from the beginning of your case, it may be hard to prove your injuries are accident-related.

Once you’ve seen the doctor, it’s important that you gather any information you have from the accident. This information should include the contact information for people involved in your accident or any witnesses.

You also should call your insurance company to report the crash, but be careful to not divulge too much information—your Ohio car accident lawyer can advise you on who to talk to, and who not to.

2. Who is at fault in a car accident?

Until your lawyer has had the opportunity to investigate the details of your claim, we can’t determine who we believe is at fault in your auto accident. As your car accident attorney, it’s our job to determine who or what caused your accident so we can pursue the compensation you’re owed for your injuries.

3. When do I need a lawyer?

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you may need to seek the help of a lawyer if:

  • your accident resulted in severe injuries,
  • you had (or are still having) substantial medical treatment (treatment that extends beyond more than a few visits to a doctor),
  • and/or you have suffered permanent injury that resulted in scarring, the need for surgery, or a permanent disability

4. Will my case go to trial?

We can’t determine if your case will go to trial until the at-fault party makes an offer. If you and your lawyer believe that the offer is satisfactory, we can settle your case out of court. If you and your lawyer believe that the offer is unfair, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf.

Our auto accident attorneys will always attempt to settle your case out of court. If that’s not possible, we won’t hesitate to file a lawsuit on your behalf.
