On average, there are six million car accidents in the U.S. every year. Three million people are injured in car accidents each year, and the property damage runs into the billions of dollars. Motor vehicle collisions occur for a variety of reasons. A driver may have run a red light or stop sign, been distracted, fatigued or speeding and was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision.
Whatever the reason for the collision, you need to make sure your rights are protected. If a third party was at fault, you deserve compensation for any damage to your car or injuries to yourself and any passengers. Most insurance companies give good advice on what to do at the scene in these situations. You ascertain any injury to yourself and any passengers, exchange information with the other driver, which includes driver’s license and license plate numbers, insurance company and contact details. Most importantly, you do not admit any liability for the accident.
