Columbus, Ohio Auto Accident Attorney, We are Here to Help Protect Your Rights.

 Car, Auto, Accident Attorneys and Lawyers in Columbus, Ohio : George W. Leach Law Offices LLC, Attorney Fees

There are no fees to be paid unless we recover money for you. This means no attorney fees.

Many people panic when they are in an auto accident. They worry how it will affect their insurance rates and other matters. Sometimes, panic causes people to say and do things they will later regret and to overlook information that would be helpful if a dispute arises regarding the accident.

Email or call Attorney Leach for a FREE, no-obligation response to your automobile accident inquiries or questions.

Here are some steps to follow if you are in a car accident.

  1. If you were treated at the scene of the car accident for any injuries, continue with the treatment prescribed by the health care provider. Any delay or breaks in treatment can negatively affect your physical recovery as well as the settlement value of your case.
  2. Take photos of any bruises or lacerations and any damage to your car, especially any damage to the interior such as seats, dashboard or steering wheel.
  3. If you did not require medical treatment at the scene of the accident or you are feeling sore shortly after you get home, see your family doctor as soon as possible. Remember, there really is not an adequate amount of money to compensate you for your pain, so you should do everything possible to immediately reduce any possibility of pain or long term injuries.
  4. Notify your insurance carrier or agent of the accident as soon as possible. They will open a file and assist with repair or replacement of your car. They can be of great assistance even if the other driver’s insurance company will be paying for the damage.
  5. Do not give a statement to an insurance representative from the other side without legal advice. Anything you say may be used to find some way to deny or diminish your claims. They are more experienced than you are. Just tell them where the car is and that it is available for inspection.
  6. Obtain a free consultation from a qualified personal injury attorney, preferably before speaking to the other side’s insurance representative. Personal injury attorneys are more than happy to assist you, even if they don’t handle your case.
  7. You may receive a letter or telephone call from the insurance carrier advising you that you should not contact an attorney, and that you should deal directly with them without a lawyer, that they will be fair. BEWARE OF THIS! They are not under any duty to be fair or to do what is best for you! They are trying to reduce the amount of money to which you are entitled.
  8. Your medical bills should be turned in to, and paid by your medical hospitalization insurance provider. This will ensure prompt payment to those who are giving you medical assistance. In most cases your medical insurance provider will be repaid at the time of settlement of your claim.

These are just a few of the things that you should do if you are in a car accident. Sometimes your case can be resolved without employing an attorney. Still, you should take full advantage of a free consultation from a lawyer.
