Questions every injured person should ask:

It is important to obtain information from the accident scene, pictures of skid marks, vehicles, witness information etc.? How do I pay for my medical treatment? Should I give a recorded statement to the insurance company? Is it ok to settle for the damage to my car? Does the Insurance company have to give me a rental car? Should I use my health insurance or ask the at fault drivers insurance company to pay my medical bills? My insurance agent told me I have medical payments coverage on my car, should I turn my bills in to my own auto insurance company? If I settle with the at fault drivers insurance carrier, do I have to reimburse my health plan for the medical bills they paid? If the other driver was given the ticket, does that mean that the insurance company is required to pay for all my medical treatment? The other driver was 99 percent at fault, if I was 1 percent at fault can I still recover? How long should I wait before I try to settle my case? How long do I have before I have to either settle or file a lawsuit? What if the at fault driver has no insurance coverage, or not enough insurance coverage, can I also file a claim against my own car insurance? Do I need to hire a lawyer or can I handle the case on my own?
