Who Caused My Car Accident?
This may seem like a simple question. Many people believe the police report determines who caused the car accident. The police report will explain what has happened based upon each person's testimony, plus as many facts as they can gather from the scene. Sometimes this is not the whole story. More information needs to be gathered.
Also, once an insurance claim has been submitted, the insurance companies will do their own investigations. The insurance companies will send their adjusters to gather information, talk to witnesses, look at medical records, examine the damage to the vehicles etc. The insurance company's conclusion may differ from the police report and now you have a real situation to contend with.
Now, your accident goes to court. If you decide to represent yourself, the court will decide who is at fault. The court will listen to all sides. You can bet the other insurance company will have strong legal representation via their own company attorneys. Since you have decided to go it alone, you are now at a distinct disadvantage. You do not thoroughly understand personal injury law. There will be words you will not understand. The proceedings will move along quickly, you will eventually get lost in the process. You are now at the mercy of the court. This could cost you thousands of dollars over the years, especially if you have suffered serious injuries caused by this accident. Medical bills are very expensive. The other insurance company is not concerned about your injuries or your medical bills. They want to win this case and get out with a minimal settlement or pay nothing at all. They have other cases to resolve and must move on. Their goal is to settle for the least amount possible and get to the next case. Your financial downfall is not their concern.
