The Crash Wasn't Your Fault
Nothing is more infuriating than a vehicle accident which has been the ‘trick’ or the ‘collision’ of someone else, but you were seemingly trying to blame it on yourself. If the accident was not your fault, you shouldn’t be blamed for it. Unfortunately, it occurs all too often.
You can take steps to prevent this from happening in the future by taking a close look at any and all paperwork relating to the auto accident claim you filed with your insurance company. If you had to make a written statement of your own fault for the crash, be sure to get it in writing and keep it in a safe place. There are many things that can be deleted from the record, but never anything that can be used at a later time as evidence against you in a court of law.
Now, we have come full circle, back to why the crash wasn’t your fault. If you had a valid excuse for driving the car, even if it was an illegal one, don’t bother contesting it. You can bet the insurance company will find you to be at fault in any legal proceedings. Even if the insurance company doesn’t give you a free pass, there are other legal avenues available to you.
If the crash wasn’t your fault you have the right to get compensation for your injuries. This will help pay for the cost of your medical bills, and the medical costs of anyone else who was injured in the crash. Not only that, but the accident may also put a dent into your ability to work. While you can file a personal injury claim with the insurance company to cover your medical bills, the company is not allowed to put a damper on your employment by denying your claim.
If the crash wasn’t your fault you still need to find out who is at fault. If you own the car, you must contact the insurance company yourself. Collect their information and call them. The insurance company will ask you many questions. Be sure to follow up with all of the answers they provide.
Remember if the crash wasn’t your fault you still need to file a claim. Don’t allow the accident to get you down. Instead, fight back. You have the right to take action. Find out what you can do that will help you fight back.
