Who will Pay for the Damage to My Vehicle
When a car accident occurs, the most important thing to address is whether there are any injuries. If you or your passengers have been hurt, it is critical to seek immediate medical attention and get evaluated by a doctor. Once that is taken care of, your next concern might be how you are going to get your car repaired or replaced.
One of the first things your attorney will do is find out what type of insurance coverage is available. If the other driver has insurance, you can usually have that company pay for your repairs or replace your car. Of course, you will need to find out how much coverage is available. What if the driver has $10,000.00 in insurance but it will cost more than that to repair or replace your car? What do you do if the other driver has no auto insurance? What kind of insurance do you have? Do you have a deductible and can you afford to pay it?
In most accidents, the police will prepare a report. This will help determine who is at fault and what damage was done to the vehicles. After you take care of your injuries, it is also important to take photos of the damage to share with your attorney and the insurance adjuster.
