Individuals injured in a car accident may have a claim for their personal injuries suffered in the accident. First and foremost, someone other than the injured party must be responsible for the injury, and that person usually must have insurance in order to recover money damages for any injuries suffered. In car accidents, if you are a passenger, in most instances you will have a claim because either the driver in your vehicle or some other vehicle is responsible for the injuries you suffer.

If you are injured in a car accident, it is important to determine the companies that insure each of the vehicles involved in an accident. It is not uncommon for the company insuring the vehicle in which you are riding to contact the injured person directly. Although it is important to cooperate, you have the right to be represented by an attorney, and you should both consult with and refer the insurance company representatives to your chosen attorney in every instance. There is no advantage to dealing directly with the insurance company claims representatives, and what you do say can later be used against you. DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO THINKING THE INSURER IS YOUR FRIEND! Their job is to minimize the insurance comapany’s financial exposure as the result of the accident.

When in doubt, refer all questions and communications to your attorney. If you would like to speak with an attorney about your case, contact Attorney Keith L. Miller today at 617-523-5803 or click here to send an email for a free consultation.
