There are so many serious questions involved in properly handling the aftermath of a serious car or motorcycle crash:
- How do I initially seek medical care, and who can I see?
- I didn't realize the extent of pain I would be in until 2 weeks after the crash – can I still get someone to pay for my treatment?
- Do I need to see a doctor immediately?
- What does PIP insurance mean, and how does it affect my injuries?
- My insurance company is hassling me, even though the accident was not my fault – what do I say?
- The guy that crashed into me is now denying he was at fault – what do I do?
- I was a passenger in a car that got hit – whose insurance pays for my injuries?
- The other guy's insurance company keeps calling, asking me to sign a release form – should I do it?
