When a licensed driver in New Hampshire or elsewhere gets behind the wheel, he or she can reasonably expect all drivers who are sharing the road to adhere to traffic laws. Sadly, driver negligence is a key factor in many collisions that result in severe injuries or fatality. In the aftermath of a car accident, a recovering victim may encounter many challenges – not only physical and emotional ones but also frustrations regarding insurance issues.
Not every driver knows what to do after a collision
Most people understand that a logical first step to take after a crash (if possible) is to get the name and contact information of the other person or people involved in the accident. It’s not always clear what to do after that, however. A person involved in a crash should also inform his or her own insurance company as soon as possible, especially if the collision resulted in injuries. If an insurance company denies a claim or if the other driver was uninsured or other issues arise, it’s important to know where to seek support to resolve the issue.
Rental cars, vehicle repairs and more
If your vehicle is so badly damaged after a collision that you can’t drive, you may need to make arrangements for another form of transportation. In some cases, insurance might cover the cost of a rental car, but not always. This issue, as well vehicle repairs, can spark frustration if obstacles arise.
Having a strong support system in place helps overcome problem issues
As your recovering from a collision, it’s understandable that you’ll need rest and time for your injuries to heal. Having to deal with insurance companies, car repairs or other issues can be stressful, especially if you have grounds for filing a personal injury claim and are considering doing so. At Backus, Meyer & Branch, LLP, in New Hampshire, an experienced legal team is committed to providing strong support in all aspects of personal injury law, particularly if someone else caused a collision that resulted in physical, emotional or economic damages to you.
