- Who will pay my medical bills? If the other driver caused the accident,your medical expenses may be covered in a personal injury claim. That means the at-fault driver’s insurance company would ultimately be responsible. Insurance companies aren’t always easy to work with, so you may need the assistance of an experienced attorney.
- Can I hold the other driver liable? It depends on the details of your San Bernardino auto accident. Fault is not always 100 percent clear. Make sure to get a copy of the police report and watch what you say to the insurance company. If it turns out the other driver is to blame, you can pursue a claim against him or her.
- Should I allow the insurance company to record my statement about the crash? Don’t think for a second that the insurance company won’t try to catch you saying something on tape that could hurt your case. Insurance adjusters are highly trained and skilled. A simple statement can be misconstrued. The worst part is that you will be on tape. Therefore, avoid giving a recorded statement until you talk with a lawyer.
- Do I need a San Bernardino car accident attorney? The answer is that you may or may not. If your accident was nothing more than a fender bender that caused minor property damage, you may not need to hire a lawyer. However, if there were serious injuries or if fault is not clear, an attorney may be able to help you.
