Car Accident Lawsuit FAQs
Our car accident lawyers have the answers to your most pressing car accident lawsuit questions:
Q: What information should I obtain from the other driver immediately following a car accident?
The immediate aftermath of a car accident can be hectic. It is important to stay calm and remember to collect the information of the other driver involved in the accident, in order to have the strongest claim possible. Drivers should collect the following information at the accident scene:
- Name, Address, Phone number, Driver’s license number
- Insurance company & Policy number
- License plate number
In some cases, the driver of the vehicle you were involved with in the accident is not the vehicle’s owner. In that case, be sure to find out who the vehicle is registered to, and clarify the relationship between the driver and vehicle owner before you get the name and address of both individuals.
Q: Should I Avoid Discussing My Accident?
Yes, especially in states with at-fault insurance laws. While car accident victims, feeling fear or rage immediately after an accident, might feel the need to push the blame onto other drivers, an investigation may reveal an entirely different story. Try not to talk about your involvement in the accident or anybody else’s, except with your attorney.
Q: How long do I have to inform my insurance company that I was in a car accident?
Ideally, you should contact your insurance provider within 24 hours of the accident. Your insurance policy may stipulate that you only have a very specific amount of time to report an accident, but it may also use a vague term such as “within a reasonable time.” It is therefore best not to wait too long to contact your provider.
Q: What if I get into a car accident with someone who doesn’t have insurance?
It depends on where you live. If you live in a state with “no-fault” insurance, your insurance company covers your bills — to a point. If your medical bills exceed the amount your policy covers, you can pursue compensation outside the no-fault system through a lawsuit if your injuries are considered “serious” or “significant.” If you live in a state with “fault” insurance, things are more complicated.
Since the other driver has no insurance from which to pursue compensation, you can try and recover compensation directly from them in a lawsuit. However, if the other driver has few personal assets, he or she may not be able to pay you what the court orders. Instead, some insurance policies include uninsured motorist coverage.
Q: How can an attorney help me after a car accident?
In a car crash, the accident is just the beginning of your problems. Navigating an insurance claim alone can be tricky, especially if the fault of the accident is disputed. In addition, insurance companies may try and settle your claim for less than it is actually worth. Hiring an attorney after an accident puts someone in your corner who knows your state’s laws and will focus on your case by gathering evidence, consulting with experts, and negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf so that you can focus on your recovery
