After you are in a car accident, what you do can affect your rights to compensation for damages. Listed below are the top 5 questions people have after a car accident in Washington DC.
1. Who pays for the damage to my car?
If the crash was caused by the fault of the other driver, generally, the other driver’s insurance company will be responsible for paying for the damage to your vehicle.
2. What about my medical bills?
Washington DC is a no-fault insurance state. Under no-fault laws, your own insurance company is responsible to pay your medical bills regardless of who caused the crash. If you are not at fault your insurance company cannot increase your premiums and/or cancel your policy.
3. What if I cannot afford to pay for medical treatment that I need?
If you were injured as a result of a car accident, it is crucial that you to go to the emergency room or your family doctor as soon as possible. Doing so provides for documentation of your injuries. It also prevents an insurance company from arguing that you were not hurt in the accident. If necessary, we may be able to recommend doctors to you who will agree to treat you with the understanding that they will get paid after your case is settled.
4. What if the other driver is not insured?
If you have insurance, and the other driver does not, then you may be able to proceed with a claim against your own insurance company. This is if you have already paid for something called uninsured motorist coverage. Remember, like the other driver’s insurance company, your insurance company will want to pay you as little as possible.
5. What if I cannot afford to pay for attorney fees?
Our fee is based on a percentage of the settlement that you receive. We only get paid after we win your car accident case.
