What to Do After An Accident in Columbus

If you escaped an accident without injury but your car wasn’t so lucky, here are the recommended steps:

  • Make sure everyone involved is uninjured. Then contact the Columbus police to file an official report. This provides proof the accident wasn’t your fault.
  • Take photos of damage to all vehicles and the accident scene. Note weather conditions, road hazards, or other factors that may have contributed. This evidence will help establish fault.
  • Finally, our expert property damage attorneys will assist you in filing a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. You should also contact your own insurance company, so it’s on record in case the other driver comes after you.

Common Causes of Vehicle Damage in Columbus Accidents

  • Rear-end collisions: The most common type of accident. Usually caused by tailgating or distracted driving.
  • Sideswipe collisions: Often caused by unsafe lane changes or failure to yield right-of-way.
  • Rollover crashes: Usually caused by speeding, overcorrection or slick roads. Rollovers frequently total vehicles.
  • Single vehicle crashes: Running off the road and hitting objects like trees, poles or guardrails.

Do You Need a Lawyer?

When dealing with property damage insurance claims, you can take care of the process on your own in many cases. However, in some situations, you will find the insurance company is trying to give you a quick payout so they can close the case. The reimbursement you receive may not be fair compensation. Unfortunately, some insurance companies act in bad faith, denying your claim without reason. In any of those situations, you’d want a lawyer by your side.
