It’s not easy to keep your composure in the immediate aftermath of a vehicle crash.
So, what measures should you take to ensure the safety of your passengers, yourself, and other motorists on the road?
When faced with the shock and stress of being in an automobile accident, many drivers make decisions that compromise their ability to seek compensation from insurance companies and other drivers.
If you want to make sure your rights are protected in the event of a vehicle crash, you should know what to do in case of a wreck.
First, ensure everyone’s safety. Hopefully, you regularly buckle up, as this safety measure saves lives and leads to fewer injuries
Here are some recommendations:
Assuming that everyone is physically okay, you can next assess the situation and take steps to safeguard yourself and your rights.
You should have, at least, minimum legal coverage in insurance. This insurance covers bodily injury and property damage. Therefore, you should have 25/50/25 coverage. This means you should have bodily injury protection of $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident, and $25,000 property damage insurance per accident.
You’ll need to call your insurance company and report the collision. Be brief and stick to the facts you know about the accident. Next, contact a lawyer, as insurance companies are in the business to make money. Therefore, they want to limit the number of claims filed. Your best bet is to file a personal injury claim, especially if the insurer is offering a settlement that is too low.
In fact, speak to a lawyer first to avoid any disputes or confusion.
Once you’ve retained a lawyer, ask your lawyer questions, so you know what to expect.
Whether or not you seek a personal injury settlement, you should consult with an attorney so you can go forward with the claims process without problems.
