The insurance company for the responsible party has contacted me, should I talk to them?
Don’t let insurance companies take advantage of you at this confusing time by convincing you to agree to a quick settlement. You will not be made whole for injuries and necessary care. You need to seek an experienced attorney, with seasoned office staff, to help negotiate a settlement. You should be compensated for pain and suffering, lost wages, temporary and/or permanent loss of use, medical bills, and even wrongful death.
Your attorney should also help you get on the road again as fast as possible. This includes getting you in a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired or appraised.
