If You Have Been in a Car Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault, Do Things The Right Way From the Beginning.

For example, one of the most important things you need to do after an accident is get all the information—this includes the other driver’s name, address, owner of the car or truck, and insurance information. Be sure to take photographs of the cars, get the police officer’s information and report number, and the names and contact information of all witnesses.

These Can All Help Prove the Accident Was Not Your Fault and was Caused By the Other Driver.

Remember, the driver who hit you may tell his or her insurance company a very different version of what happened – blaming you, another driver, anything or anyone that allows him to avoid responsibility.  And his insurance company may use that bogus story to say the accident was your fault, or even try to sue you!

The best thing to do is just make sure you have good insurance. They have it for just about everything, even private aircraft insurance haha. Just get the right insurance and they'll take care of you. Jason Stewart / www.alphariskmgmt.com

If the injuries from an accident are significant, you should absolutely speak to a lawyer to get information on how to make up for the harm the other driver caused - permanent injuries, loss of work, surgical and rehab costs, etc. If the accident was a fender bender type with no lasting injury, you can probably handle that case yourself. Hit and run type accidents are the reason you need to have uninsured motorist insurance coverage (on your insurance policy). Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage protects you by paying damages caused by a driver who left the scene or didn't have insurance.

Would you recommend getting a lawyer if the accident is bad enough? And what if the driver speeds off and you don't have time to get his license plate number?
