Default The car turns to the right when it's supposed to go straight

Not too long ago I had a flat tire on the front right, so I took it to the closest tire store and got a new tire. I knew that driving with a wheel completely flat was gonna hurt my car. But I had no other choice. So I took it the closest gas station put some air in it and drove it to the mechanic. After all this with the new tire I let go the steering wheel and it start to turn a little bit to the left. I want to take it to a mechanic to get it fixed, but I want to have an idea of what is damaged and could be causing this

Any responses would be very helpful
My car is an Accord 2003 LX 2.4 if that even matters somehow

You may have damaged the rim (hit pothole hard to cause tire to deflate?) or worse, damaged the suspension w/ a hard hit.

Camber (wheel tilt) is not adjustable on Accords, so if camber is out of spec (this would cause hard pull), then some suspension parts may be damaged.

Hopefully a damaged rim.

good luck
