How to Properly Report or Describe a Car Accident

In an event of a road car crash accidents, things escalate quickly and unexpectedly that people involved in the recent accidents are having hard time or even can't recall what had transpire during the accident and what manner did the accident occur, we can't blame those who have in the situation as it is also because of how they are looking for themselves and their occupants in the car rather than noticing what had happened outside unconsciously. But, when we look closely in legal terms, it is highly encouraged to those victims to remember clearly and accurately as possible for possible or a need of filing a claim as quality and reliability of your statements of what transpired in the accident is essential for your claim to success and how much compensation pay you will be getting. 

Hiring a good lawyer based in your location exactly would be a great help for your case as lawyers job is to represent your case. Since Ohio is a state adhering to at-fault car accidents rule, it is pretty important to prove your innocence and at-fault driver's fault at utmost extent. Ryan LLP is an Ohio based injury attorneys that represent their clients whose victims of negligence along road and has sustained significant injury and even other collateral damage such as financial, emotional and mental damage following the accident. This is a list of common things to remember as much as possible when proving and stressing someone's fault following an accident.

Before getting in to that, keep in mind that you have to describe it realistically and very vivid as much as possible, so here are some tips when explaining: 

  1. Never use misleading and strong words or phrases

    Before having a lawyer by your side to constantly advice you, for instance, in a police report, construct already phrases in your head that doesn't sound like you caused the accident or even a partial blame like words that imply you unintentionally, accidentally, or unconsciously done something to be part of the accident. 

    Tone and intonation is important when convicing insurers of at-fault driver since they are petty with details too. If you are not likely to be vocal, you can let them see your recent medical record following the accident. 

  2. Furthermore, explain where are your injuries and where it hurts where closed injuries are present aside from medical records

    Expect that a victim or someone involved in a recent accident should feel excruciating pain as days develops and aside from medical records as a support of injury claim, with this context, explain to insurers and to the at-fault driver himself how your injuries felt and how it made you feel broken and suffer each day as this form of conversation may increase the settlement pay and insurers may not argue to settle less and pay instead since they may think that compensation pay is needed immediately by the victim for medical bills and other pending payments induced by the accident. 

  3. Location of the occurrence of accident, time and other important details 

    When filing for a police report, victim should remember the time, location and involved person in the accident he/she have experienced since it would account and help to their investigation to determine whose at fault and who is the victim so it is important to state them what are the facts since it reflect to their investigation and to your reliability as well. 

    In medical records too, stating and describing where you'ev been hit that in the event of collision, specifically the angle of collision and immediately tell it to your hired lawyer and even necessary to police authority. To give you ideas what are the types of collisions, here are some of them: bumper to bumper collision, rear collision, and side or T-bone collissions.
