If you were not injured you should contact your insurance company and have them handle the situation.

    Answered . I suggest that you avoid speaking with the at-fault driver's insurance company; they are not friendly to you in this case. As the previous posters have mentioned, you need to report the entire incident to your own insurance company. Your insurance carrier will advocate for your case with the other driver's carrier when it comes to property damage, etc.

    If you are injured, I suggest not speaking to anyone before you talk to an experienced personal injury attorney. Any sworn statements or recordings that you give may be used against you later, so it's better to have someone experienced to help you through the claim.

    Answered . You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing.
