After being involved in any type of accident, the most important thing that you can do is to seek appropriate medical attention. The next most important thing is for you to contact an experienced personal injury attorney before you speak with anyone from an insurance company. Most drivers think that just because they have auto insurance that any injuries they sustained during a car accident will automatically be covered by their policy.
Unfortunately, insurance companies, like most businesses, are mainly interested in increasing their profits and protect their assets. Any thoughts about you, your family, or your medical care are way down the list of things that are important to insurance companies. This means that the insurance company may fail to cover the full extent of your injuries and may make receiving your compensation an incredibly drawn-out and difficult process.
