Protect Your Rights by Limiting Communication

Additionally, while it can be tempting to try to work the matter out privately with the at-fault driver, this is rarely a good idea. Despite the hope that a personal arrangement can save either side money by keeping insurance premiums down, it is a risky endeavor. The other driver may not live up to his end of the bargain, and victims may find themselves in a very difficult position. Ultimately, victims may lose out on vital compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repair and replacement.

If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a car accident, call the police to report the accident immediately.
