First, all drivers are required to operate their vehicles in a safe manner and obey traffic laws. When a driver fails to follow the rules of the road and causes a car accident, that is considered negligence. So you have the right, if you have been injured by someone else’s negligence (i.e fault), to be compensated for the injuries that you have suffered.
What Are My Duties with the Insurance Company?
You have the right not to speak to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Following an accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company is likely to call you every day and ask for a recorded statement. You don’t have to give a recorded statement even if the insurance company insists that they need one. You do not have to do anything to help the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
What Are My Rights in Hiring a Lawyer?
Most importantly, you have the right to retain an attorney after you have been injured in a car accident. This is a very important right and it goes along with the fact that you do not have to speak directly to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. You can hire a lawyer to speak on your behalf.
