Avoid pitfalls on social media after a car crash

If you suffered an injury in a car crash, you are likely dealing with a myriad of complicated issues in the crash aftermath. Whether you suffered a relatively minor injury or something catastrophic, you are facing the obvious difficulties surrounding your injury resulting from the motor vehicle accident. In addition, there are many other factors you must face, including medical bills, dealing with insurance companies, and quite possibly legal issues in trying to seek out the compensation you deserve.

After the accident: Do not speak with another insurance rep

Following a car accident in Ohio, you want to see a medical professional to ensure you do not have any hidden injuries. You will also want to swap insurance information with the other driver, and contact your own auto insurance agency to inform a representative of what occurred. 

Distracted driving is serious, and not always about texting

When you hear the term “distracted driving,” you probably think about people using their cellphones to send or receive text messages. While texting is still a serious problem on our roadways, it is not the only distraction that leads to crashes.

What to do if you are a pedestrian involved in a hit-and-run

All drivers learn that if they become part of a collision of any severity, they need to pull off to the side of the road to deal with it. Unfortunately, many drivers still engage in hit-and-runs, and you need to file a claim immediately if you ever become involved in one. 

Steps to take if you are hurt while riding Uber or Lyft

For many people, using a ridesharing app has become a common practice. Services such as Uber and Lyft make it easy for people to get rides anywhere in their city. In July 2017, Lyft announced that it was officially giving over one million rides a day, a milestone already surpassed by Uber. 

Talk to a lawyer before an insurance agent after a car crash

Car accidents are highly prevalent, and even if you are a good driver, you never know what may happen on the road. The Ohio Department of Public Health found that in 2016, approximately 77,000 people in the state suffered injuries in vehicle collisions. Even more collisions occurred that only caused damage to property. 

Pedestrian accidents on the rise throughout the nation

There are always risks for pedestrians, because getting hit by a car can cause serious injuries or even death. However, the risks are increasing in today's tech-oriented society. While smartphones aren't to blame for everything bad that happens to pedestrians, they are playing a role in more and more accidents. People who are talking on their phones, texting behind the wheel, or otherwise using their smartphone while driving may end up striking a person in a crosswalk or other location, simply because they were distracted and didn't see that person at all.
