Auto Accident FAQs


Recovering compensation from an auto accident can be very difficult. If you are partly liable for the auto accident, then recovering compensation can be even harder.

The amount you can recover may depend on your state’s laws on contributory negligence and comparative negligence.

Can’t I handle my auto accident claim without a lawyer?

You may be able to handle your auto accident claim without the aid of an auto accident lawyer, but it will be much more difficult. An auto accident lawyer will have experience dealing with insurance adjusters and insurance companies.

An auto accident lawyer will also be able to investigate the auto accident and help show that the auto accident was not your fault. Finally, settlements reached with the aid of an auto accident lawyer are generally more substantial than settlements reached without an experienced auto accident lawyer.

Do I need to call the police if I have an auto accident?

Yes, even though calling the police after an auto accident is not mandatory in all states. However, by contacting the police after your auto accident, you will be able to obtain a police report about the auto accident.

A police report can be an essential part of your auto accident claim because it should detail who the police believe was negligent, and thus liable, for the auto accident. Contact DeMayo Law Offices, L.L.P. ® to schedule your free initial auto accident consultation.

I feel fine. Should I still see a doctor after my auto accident?

Yes. Many times injuries sustained during an auto accident do not arise for some time after the auto accident occurred. This means that while you may feel all right now, you may be injured internally. You should always seek medical attention after being involved in an auto accident.

If you are not liable for the auto accident, you will be able to receive compensation for any medical costs you have to pay following the auto accident.

What should I say to the insurance adjuster after my auto accident?

Insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies, and it is their job to save the insurance company as much money as possible from your auto accident. While it is all right to speak with the insurance adjuster about the auto accident, you should always have some sort of witness present, preferably an experienced auto accident lawyer.
