I tend to talk about auto insurance—a lot.

If you have any questions about what kind of coverage you should get, call a personal injury attorney and ask for advice. You should photograph the damage to all of the vehicles involved, the overall scene, and any visible injuries. The insurance company doesn’t care about you or how your life was affected by your injuries. You look at your claim in a vacuum. Well, with God as my witness, I am that fool!

The proximate cause of the wreck could be something other than the fault of the other driver. Property damage to your vehicle may be slight. If the injured victim is still treating, and the Defendant has substantial insurance limits to cover potential claims, a lawsuit may need to be filed to allow the person time to assess their medical situation and what the future may hold for them.
