A car accident can turn your life upside down. There’s the trauma of the accident, dealing with the injuries, property damage, and how you’re going to move forward. You’re probably already thinking about the claims process and how to proceed with filing a car accident claim with your insurance company. If you’ve been injured in a car crash in the state of Ohio, the best way to protect your rights is with a Cincinnati car accident lawyer from Thomas Law Offices.

While you may want to handle the case as quickly as possible, this may not be in your best interest. You may not know the full extent of your injuries. You also don’t want the insurance company to undercut how the injuries are affecting your life like work and daily activities. Rushing through your claim could leave you with an unfavorable settlement, meaning that your compensation won’t cover the expenses of your injuries. It takes time to get a result with a car accident claim that will work for you. It may not be your preferred way of dealing with things, but allowing your attorney to fight for your rights is the best option for you.

How Will Driverless Cars Change Our Cities?

From quick trips to the grocery store to cross-country adventures, we use our cars to get us where we need and want to go. But what happens when our cars get us there on their own?

All the leading car manufacturers are jumping on the driverless car bandwagon and are pledging to have autonomous systems in the works by at least 2020. If researchers’ projections are right, urban landscapes have the potential to evolve significantly in conjunction with the increase of driverless cars.

Greener Cities

Presently, our vehicles release approximately 333 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere on a yearly basis. Driverless cars have the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

Many personal injury accidents cause a lot of pain. It could be from a car accident, slip and fall, or a defective product. What unites these accidents is that they usually happen because someone was negligent, meaning that if the person had acted responsibly, the accident wouldn’t have happened. When people file personal injury claims, insurance companies will go through and calculate a settlement for the injured person.

If you’ve been injured and want to make sure you’re getting fair compensation, Thomas Law Offices can help. The lawyers at this firm are well-versed in personal injury claims and will fight to get you the settlement you deserve.

What Happens After a Car Accident with No Police Report?

Published on Aug 22, 2018 at 2:58 pm in Auto Accident.

After a car accident, a few things can happen. The driver who caused the accident may drive off, making the accident a hit and run, and the driver who left has now broken the law. In other serious crashes, someone may be injured or property could be damaged. Both of these situations would need a police report to identify the negligent party and provide an account of how the accident happened and what damage it caused. The reports could also be essential to the claims process.

But there are situations where a police report may not be necessary. A minor bump that doesn’t affect the drivers’ health or doesn’t cause any damage to the cars could be resolved between those parties. While there isn’t a police report in this case, it’s still important to get legal aid to protect your interests. If you’ve been in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, a Louisville car accident lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help.
