Should You Talk to the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
Legally, you are not required to speak with the other person’s insurance company. Talking to them may even damage your case in the long run, as a recorded statement can be used against you. Let us handle this discussion on your behalf.
However, you must speak with your own insurance agent. During this conversation, only provide the name, address, and phone number of the other parties involved in the accident, as well as their insurance information, the law enforcement agency that responded to the scene, and date and time of the incident.
Who is Responsible for Paying for Your Medical Treatment?
The at-fault driver’s insurance company may pay for some or all of your medical treatment, but it will be included in the negotiated settlement at the end of your case. While you are moving through the legal process, we encourage you to use your personal health insurance so your medical treatment is not interrupted.
If you do not have health insurance, we may be able to work with some doctors to treat you on a lien basis. This means that you won’t have to pay them back for your treatment until your case settles.
