Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co. is an injury and disability law firm representing clients in the greater Cincinnati area and southwestern Ohio. Our automobile injury attorneys have experience in giving legal advice in all manners of injury cases. We give you sympathetic and effective help after an automobile accident.
What to do if injured in an accident:
Try to remain calm. Assess your physical condition and find a doctor or nearby hospital to tell you what to do for an injury. Automobile or other accidents can cause head trauma, neck trauma, or other injury. Your physical well-being is the most important task at hand.
If you are able, assess the scene of the accident carefully while you are on site. While talking to any law enforcement officer or highway authority representative, make sure they document the specifics of the accident scene and any physical damage to you and your vehicle. Their testimony can be important if you need to negotiate a car accident settlement later. You should also see if there were any eyewitnesses to the accident.
After a car accident, don’t sign any insurance forms until you have received legal help from an accident law firm. Signing forms before you can fully consider the document could hurt your chance at receiving your rightful traffic accident claim later on.
If you are seriously injured in a car accident, keep track of all expenses related to your injury. These expenses can include hospitalization bills, pain medicine costs, physical therapy, loss of wages, and expenses for household services you can temporarily not do yourself.
If you have been in an automobile accident, or suffered from the wrongful death of a loved one in an automobile accident and need capable legal representation, please call Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co. for a free initial consultation.
