After any serious injury from a vehicle accident, it is very important that you speak with an experienced personal injury attorney right away. Most personal injury attorneys are happy to provide case consultations for free and without any obligation to you. It’s important to talk to an attorney right away because an attorney has a duty to inform you what is best for you – nobody else does.

If you call the other party’s insurance company first, their goal is to find ways to deny your claim, settle your claim for pennies on the dollar, or reduce the value of your claim. The insurance adjuster that you’re on the phone with has absolutely no duty or obligation to tell you what is best for you. Their duty is to save the insurance company they work for as much money as possible.

Even if you call your insurance company first, their goal is to save their own company as much money as possible. They will want to deny your claim, or reduce the value of your claim as well. Insurance companies often mislead injured victims and provide inaccurate information to them because it saves them money in the end.

The fact that the other driver was uninsured does not mean that you will not be able to get compensated for your case. You may have insurance coverage under your own policy that will compensate you for your loss or the person who injured you may have assets that are worth pursuing to get compensated.

Ultimately, make sure to talk to a personal injury attorney after a crash. They will let you know what your options are and give his or her opinion about what is best for you and your case.
