How Did Your Car Accident Happen?
Rear-Ended? Hit Head-On? Whatever the Cause, Don't Wait to Contact a Columbus Attorney to Get Justice
Columbus, OH Attorney Mike Christensen has handled cases involving many different types of car accidents in greater Columbus. Each case is different, with different factors that led to the crash. Some of the types of accidents that can occur include:
- rear-end accidents
- hit-skip (hit-and-run) accidents
- head-on collision accidents
- rollover accidents
- "Do I need a lawyer for a rear-end crash?"
- "What should I do after a hit-skip (hit and run) accident?"
- "Who will compensate me for a head-on crash?"
- "What should I do if I've been involved in a rollover accident?"
A common cause of these types of accidents is distracted driving. A driver behind you looks away from the road while talking on the phone, changing the radio station, eating or drinking, etc.
People involved in rear-end crashes often suffer head and neck injuries, which can be mild or severe depending on speed and other factors. (They can be hurt in other ways, also.)
In 2014 alone, there were more than 77,984 rear-end collisions in Ohio. More than 21,000 people were injured as a result. It's always a good idea to consult an attorney to protect your legal rights. If you've been injured as the result of a rear-end accident, contact us to see how we can help.
Leaving the scene of an accident in which someone was injured or killed is a serious crime in Ohio, but sadly, some drivers do it anyway. Their license may have been suspended, or they may have been driving while impaired.
If they get away without being identified, it creates even more problems for the people they injure-especially if they don't have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage on their policies.
A hit-skip accident can cause many types of injuries. Contact our offices to learn more about how we can help you.
Head-on crashes are less common, but can be more dangerous. When the front end of two vehicles collide, it can cause significant damage and injury. In 2014, there were 5,011 head-on crashes in Ohio, resulting in 2,494 injuries and 129 deaths.
Head-on collisions can occur when a driver crosses the center line into oncoming traffic. This may be because of distraction, drowsiness, faulty traffic signals or other factors.
If another driver is responsible for a crash in which you were injured, you are entitled to compensation. Contact us for a free case evaluation.
This type of accident can occur when a car drives at significant speed into soft soil or hits a curb, guardrail or snowbank. Older SUVs may also be susceptible to rollovers because of a high center of gravity.
Other factors may also lead to a rollover accident-for example, evading a negligent driver, mechanical problems or tire defects. A rollover crash can lead to injuries of the head, chest, abdomen, arms and legs.
If you've been injured in a rollover accident, call our offices for a free case evaluation. We'll fight to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.
