Types of Car Accidents
Sometimes. At the very least you need to make sure you get the other person’s information, take photos, and preserve as much as you can. If you attempt to try to go around your or their insurance, it may end up backfiring. So you are going to need as much evidence to back your story as possible.
As a rule, take the ambulance ride. There is no shame in getting checked out at the ER. And it presents better to the insurance company if you end up being injured. After a wreck you are filled with adrenaline, it kills the pain. A lot of times, it takes two or three days for you to realize how bad you are hurt.
It depends on whether it was a recorded statement or not. If it was not recorded, then it is your word versus whatever their person states. Under no circumstances should you provide a recorded statement. You are waving your right to remain silent and providing evidence against yourself. DO NOT DO IT.
If you or the other people are injured, call 9-1-1 first.
Call the lawyer first. Our job is to guide you through the entire process, which includes making contact with your own insurance company. Sometimes, you make a claim against your own policy, then you are no longer in “Good Hands”
