3. What If The At Fault Driver Is Uninsured or Underinsured?

4. How Can I Recover For My Damages Vehicle?
It is really simple. All you need to do is have an insurance appraiser examine your vehicle at the auto body shop with your mechanic present. Your repairman should discuss the property damage claim with the claims adjustor directly. Since he is the one fixing your car, he is the best person to negotiate the value of your property damage claim. Read more.
5. Do I Have To Hire A Lawyer?
We highly recommended that you don’t contact the other driver’s insurance company on your own, without help from an experienced car accident lawyer. If you do decide to contact them, be careful what you say as they will try use any incriminating statements against you, whether you make them intentionally or not. We advise against you signing any papers until you know you are fully recovered. We recommend you get your medical records on your own and send them to the adjuster. Most importantly, make sure not to agree to any settlement offers until your doctor releases you from treatment and you know you are fully healed. Read more.
