Our Portsmouth Car Accident Lawyers Can Help

When you are involved in a car accident, you experience a traumatic event regardless of how devastating the injuries or damages are. Car accidents are caused by multiple types of negligent behaviors, and working through an insurance claim can be a complicated process.

Our Tri-State car accident attorneys handle car accident claims including but not limited to:

  • Distracted driving accidents: Car accidents as a result of distracted driving are increasing in the United States. Over 80% of motorists admit to using their phones while they are driving. Distracted driving may also include eating while driving, adjusting music, or any other means of failure to maintain focus on the road.
  • Drunk driving accidents: An individual who was involved in a car accident may be able to recover compensation from the other driver if they are found to be less than 50% negligent for the fault of the accident. In Ohio, those who are involved in drunk driving accidents are generally able to sue the negligent party for damages that occurred as a result of their accident.

What to Expect Physically After a Car Accident

The first thing you should do after any car accident, no matter how minor it may seem, is to seek medical treatment. Even if you believe that your injuries are not serious, it’s important to have them checked out by a trained medical professional as, often times, the initial shock of the accident can mask your symptoms. Other times, injuries may take days, hours, or even weeks to appear.

What to do After a Car Accident

Once you have checked yourself and others for injuries, you should do the following:

  • Gather the other involved drivers’ information, including insurance information
  • Contact the police and fill out a police report
  • Take pictures of the scene of the accident, including damage to your vehicle
  • Obtain any eyewitness statements if possible
  • Contact your own insurance company and inform them of the accident
  • Reach out to a car accident attorney near you
