    The friend who borrowed your car can be sued where the accident took place.Insurance goes with the car so its your insurance. Most cases that involve personal injury are settled and do not require litigation. Contact your insurance carrier immediately.

    I see nothing wrong with your request.The representative answers in part to you and of course should provide copies of the paperwork to all interested parties. In our wrongful death cases in Maryland and Virginia this is always done. In fact ,for all interest persons in wrongful death cases in Maryland and Virginia who do not speak english, we frequently have the papers translated in Spanish,Chinese and Korean.

    Exchanging insurance information after a car accident is customary. However, you do not need to talk to the other drivers insurance carrier. In fact, if you were in the accident you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer.The car accident attorney would collect all your medical bills, and talk to the defendants insurance carrier.

    Make sure the incident was reported. Immediately contact an experienced personal injury attorney. The attorney can view the scene , looking at the incline and lighting,and request the security tape to view the fall. Other factors that will play into this involve your own contact. For example were you drinking or fooling around before the fall? If a lawsuit is filed the injury attorney will discover any prior falls at this location.

    Litigation requires an experienced litigator. Find one in your area tomorrow.While our law firm is often reluctant to take injury cases in Maryland and Virginia once they are in litigation, some firms will and even we make exceptions to the rule.For example, on numerous occasions we have taken over litigation in cases with chinese speaking accident victims in both Maryland and Virginia,simply because the prior law firm could not communicate properly due to the language barrier.
