Have you been involved in a car accident? Are you concerned about the repercussions of the accident? As the professionals at Dashner Law have worked with people involved in these situations, we have fielded many questions. Before you find yourself in this frustrating situation, learn what to ask a lawyer about car accident responsibilities so that you will be prepared to act appropriately.
Should I Call the Police if I Am Involved in an Accident?
Yes. Even if neither party has suffered injuries, it is always a good idea to call the police. If the other driver was at fault, you will need the accident report and other information that the police put together. Your insurance company will also need information that the police provide. If you have been injured, share this information with the police, so that the details can be included in the report.
What Should I Do if I Am at Fault?
In some areas, the insurance company may try to deny compensation or coverage if you are found negligent. Even if you believe that you are at fault, or partially at fault, do not admit this to anyone at the time of the accident. It is a better choice to share this information with your car accident attorney.
Why Is It Important to Hire a Lawyer?
Many people do not know what to ask a lawyer about car accident cases. This is because most people don’t want to think about getting involved in this kind of an accident. You don’t have to understand all of the ins and outs of a case. When you hire a lawyer, you have help obtaining justice for the loss of work, the costs of injuries, and damage to your car. A lawyer may help you negotiate with your insurance company.
