Growth and Congestion Factors in Columbus Car Accidents

Anyone who has ever driven in Columbus knows that the area is growing, and roadways are becoming more congested. Interstate 185 is a major thoroughfare that connects Columbus to I-85 south of LaGrange. There are also major highways that connect Columbus to nearby cities, such as Highways 431, 280, and 27.

Not only is Columbus an economic hub (and the third-largest city in the state), it is also home to Fort Benning, a major army post that houses more than 27,000 active-duty service members and their families.

What to Do After a Columbus Car Accident

When a car accident happens, your adrenaline is pumping and your emotions are high. This is a reasonable response. The best thing you can do is try to stay calm and take some steps to protect yourself, others, and your legal rights.

First, if you are able to, get to safety away from moving traffic. Call 911 to request police and emergency medical care. It is a good idea to have a police report completed so you have documentation of the scene and the circumstances of the accident. Avoid placing blame or admitting any fault.

At the scene, take photos of the scene, damage, and your injuries. Collect information from other parties involved, such as driver’s license, contact, and insurance information. If there are witnesses that were not involved, ask them if they mind providing contact information.

Always get medical care after a car accident, even if you don’t “think” or “feel like” you are seriously hurt. Many car accident injuries are not immediately apparent, and it is a good idea to have professionals assess you. This can be especially important if you file a claim for injuries or medical expenses.
