So you’ve been in a serious accident, now what do you do? Let me tell you the first thing NOT to do. Don’t give a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance because they will try to use whatever you say against you. For example, if they ask how you’re doing today and you say the common courtesy response “I’m doing okay” they will try to use that against you later. Even though you still have broken bones, torn ligaments, or whatever’s has happened to you.
The next is, use your own health insurance. If you’ve got it, use it. In the end that helps you get better and the best recovery you can. If you happen to have medical payment coverage with your auto insurance, use that as well. These are the things that help you get better and help you recover as fast as you can to get you back to work, and your life back to work.
If you have any questions about what to do after an accident or what type of insurance to use after one, give me a call.
