I was involved in a car accident last week, but it was not my fault. I was injured and went to hospital. What do I do now?

The first thing you need to know is that the other driver’s insurance company and/or lawyer are not your friends. Their goal is to try to avoid paying you any amount of money or pay out as little as possible. An insurance company facing a claim will try to blame you for the accident. Do not face them alone. Seek legal representation to help you get compensation for your injuries.

Do not under any circumstances speak to the other driver’s insurance agent or attorney. Advise them to speak to your attorney. You should only speak to your attorney about the accident you were involved. It is important to remember to never talk to an insurance agent or the other party’s lawyer as anything you say will be used against you to reduce or dismiss the claim.
