If you are injured in an automobile accident, call an experienced personal injury attorney right away.
Do not give a statement to the insurance company. Do not sign any documents or accept any offers of compensation until you see your attorney.
If the other party was at fault in causing the accident, you have the right to recover damages from the person who hurt you, and from their insurance company. You have the right to be compensated for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and, if you are married, loss of consortium.
If you have collision coverage on your car, your insurance company will pay to repair or replace your car. It will be reimbursed by the party at fault. If you don't have collision coverage, you will have to collect the damage to your car from the other driver or his insurance company. The same is true of your medical expenses: if you have auto insurance, your own insurance company will pay your medical bills, up to the limit of your coverage, through what is called "no fault" coverage. If you do not have no-fault, or if your bills exceed the limits of your coverage, the excess may be collected from the other driver's insurer.
