If you have not done so already, you need to report the accident to your auto insurance carrier, which will indemnify and defend you against the claims being made against you.
Your insurance policy, which is a legal contract between you and your insurance company, requires you to report any accident in a timely manner. A person should ALWAYS report the accident to his company no matter who was at fault. If a party is not at fault and injured, he should also consult with a personal injury attorney in his area to go over the case before giving any statements to insurance companies. By waiting to report the accident, an insured person always runs the risk that his insurance company will do what is called “reserving its rights” later on to disclaim or deny coverage because the insured person violated the terms of the insurance policy/contract.
Bottom line: report the accident immediately to your insurance company and let them handle this claim, as that is the reason you pay insurance premiums. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
Please do not message me for further advice or contact my former law firm in any way. If you are in need of an attorney to assist you, please search for another attorney in the jurisdiction involved in your case, as I am now retired, and my former law firm is no longer handling these types of cases. I am active on AVVO and answer questions only as a public service at this point.
IMPORTANT: No attorney-client relationship is formed through interaction with this attorney on this public forum. The contents of any comment or response should be considered general conversational discourse on the topic identified and NOT specific legal advice or analysis that might apply to your situation. If you rely upon any part of the content of this response in making any decision or pursuing any course of action, you do so at your own risk and without recourse against this attorney or law firm.
Turn this over to your own insurance company.
Please DO NOT message or phone me with further questions or comments as the discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public (the only exception to this being for serious prospective clients). If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and repost it. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
