What to Do at the Scene of a Car Accident in Ohio

Published on Mar 1, 2019 at 7:50 pm in Car Accidents.

After a car accident occurs in Ohio, you may not have any idea of what to do or how to proceed. Your actions immediately after the incident could potentially mean the difference between life and death if someone is badly hurt. It’s important to know what to do after an auto wreck so you can make sure that you’re doing what needs to happen and getting people the help they need. Here are some pointers depending on the situation you’re in:

If You Were Involved in the Accident

The first thing to do after an accident is to remain calm. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. The shock of the accident or not knowing what to do next may make you want to panic, but this will not help your situation. So, take a few calming breaths and then get ready for the matter at hand.

After assessing yourself for injuries, you should contact authorities and EMTs. The police will be able to make a report and professionals will be able to evaluate you or the other people involved in the accident for injuries. Even minor car wrecks can cause injuries. They will be able to take a look at you and advise you on how to proceed with care. It may be a follow up with another doctor as soon as you can get to them. They may also give advice for any pain you’re experiencing at the moment.

If you’ve been wrongfully injured in Atlanta and are looking to take legal action, you may be wondering how long it will take to settle your personal injury claim. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to estimate how long the process will take because every case is unique. While a settlement for one claim could come about in a matter of weeks, a different set of circumstances could result in a claim taking years to settle. The biggest factor in determining length often revolves around the severity of injuries and the treatments needed.

With years of experience, the lawyers from Bey & Associates will be able to evaluate your claim and estimate how long it could potentially go on for. The steps of the claim process and the factors that affect the length of time to settle will need to be taken into consideration.

We’re usually accustomed to getting winter weather driving tips. We know how dangerous snow and ice can be. But sometimes, other weather conditions are ignored. Rain occurs year-round, and can be a danger to drivers that don’t know how to handle their vehicle when the roads are slippery. They may treat driving in rain as the same as driving in dry conditions. Unfortunately, this can cause accidents. If you’ve been injured by a negligent driver, Bey & Associates can help you get the justice you deserve with a car accident claim.

We understand how difficult this can be to deal with, and that’s why we’re here to provide our legal expertise. We’ll look into your accident and find out what happened, who was at fault, and calculate your compensation. Then we’ll fight to make sure you get a fair settlement that will cover costs of the accident.

You should understand how a wet road can be dangerous to drivers so you know how to be as safe as possible in inclement weather. When people think about rain and driving, they may automatically think about hydroplaning.

How Fault Is Determined During a Sideswipe Accident

Published on Jan 24, 2019 at 2:11 pm in Car Accidents.

Every type of car accident comes with its own set of complexities when trying to determine liability. Sideswipe accidents are no different. If you’re following the rules of the road and are hit on the side of your vehicle, you may think proving the other driver’s fault and receiving fair compensation will be easy. Unfortunately, these types of accidents can be difficult to prove because the wreckage doesn’t always paint a clear picture of what happened and why it happened.

In order to receive the compensation you deserve, it’s important to understand what a sideswipe accident is, why they happen, and how Ohio determines liability.

A brain injury can completely change your life. You may have to adjust to a new normal—which means you may not be able to return to your job or participate in activities and hobbies you did before the injury. Many traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are also life-threatening. Why is this? Let’s take a look at how serious injuries to the brain can be.

When people think of a car collision, they usually associate it with severe physical injuries, but the concern usually stays within that area. But these accidents can do more than cause physical injuries. Often, the people involved in an accident may also find that their mental health has been suffering, too. These symptoms need to be taken seriously and treated just as a broken bone or concussion would.
