When to Contact the Police or an Attorney After an Auto Accident

Car Accident Attorney

Is it really necessary to call the police?

Yes! If you are involved in an accident, it is important to contact the police immediately. Doing so will help document what happened, why it happened, how it happened, and which parties are at fault. It will also allow for an immediate investigation of the scene while the evidence is still available.

When should I contact an attorney?

After all injured persons receive medical care and information is gathered from all of the parties and witnesses involved, you should contact an attorney who is experienced in handling personal injury matters as soon as possible. We will always meet with you the same day you contact us to give you free information and advice. If you decide to retain our services, we will have our investigator conduct a thorough, immediate investigation of the accident, so that no evidence is lost or undetected.

Contact us at 800-LAW-OHIO, so we can discuss your accident and begin protecting your rights and interests.

The above is not legal advice. Legal advice can only come from a qualified attorney who is familiar with all facts and circumstances of a particular, specific case and the relevant law.
