What to do after you've been in a car accident:
First, seek medical attention. Even if you are not at fault your insurance will cover up to $10,000.00 dollars of the initial expenses, and possibly more. This is true even if the at fault driver is not insured. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene and get the names, driver's license, and contact information of not only others involved but bystanders or witnesses. Also, get a report number from law enforcement along with all insurance information of everyone involved.
Next, seek legal counsel to review your insurance policy, the accident forms you have and the information gathered at or near the scene of the accident. Legal counsel should make sure you are protected and determine the extent to which you are covered. You have paid your premiums every time you were asked, it is your right to be protected and covered when the need arises.
