Unfortunately, our warnings could not have been more timely, with a recent spate of Cleveland-area motor vehicle accidents demonstrating just how dangerous this month can be for travelers.
Check the local headlines and you can see for yourself how frequently car accidents occur. In the few short hours prior to this posting, four people were injured in an Elyria car accident and a six-car accident closed a portion of I-90.

Dozens of other accidents happened within those same few hours, and many of those accidents caused people like you serious injuries and anguish.
It is a fact of driving that accidents can happen. Even the most cautious and diligent of drivers must share the road with the careless and be exposed to their negligence. Since you cannot control the actions of these reckless drivers, what can you do? Be prepared. Know what you should do when an accident occurs.
- Request on-site medical attention if needed. This is rule number one: health comes first. Get the medical attention you or any other party involved needs.
- Exchange insurance information. If another driver flees the scene, do your best to record the license plate, make, and model of the vehicle. Do not chase after the vehicle—you should not make risky driving decisions in any circumstances, let alone while driving a vehicle that has just been damaged in a motor vehicle accident.
- File a police report.
- Take photos of the vehicle and the scene of the accident.
- Contact the experienced Cleveland auto accident attorneys at Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA as soon as possible.
