The other driver’s insurance company wants to talk to you after the San Bernardino car accident.  Your medical bills are causing anxiety.  Making matters worse, you are not sure when you will be able to return to work.  The San Bernardino personal injury attorneys at Steinberg Injury Lawyers understand that you have questions.  That is why we have provided a list of answers to the most commonly asked questions by our clients.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
