What Do I Do If I Am Hurt In A Crash?
The other driver's insurance company is not trying to help you. They are trying to get information to deny your claim. Here are the steps to take to protect your rights.
Do Not Talk To The Other Driver's Insurance CompanyYou have no obligation to talk to the other driver's insurance company. They are only looking for information that can be used against you.
Seek Medical Treatment Right AwayYour job is to do everything you can to get better. Tell your doctor about all of your injuries. See your doctor when you're hurting, and follow your doctor's instructions. The insurance company will blame you if you wait too long to see the doctor or if you don't follow your doctor's advice.
Document Your ClaimTake pictures of all of your injuries and any damage to your car or other property. Keep a journal or diary that documents how your injuries have affected you and your family. If you have lost work because of your injuries, keep your pay stubs or other records that will show your wage loss. Keep copies of your medical bills, even if the bills get paid by your auto or health insurance.
