When you are involved in an automobile accident, the first thing you usually want to know is whether the other party has liability insurance. This is one of the most important features of a personal injury accident because insurance companies are largely responsible for paying the damages incurred in a car crash.
Most individuals simply do not have the capital to pay the high costs associated with a car accident, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses. Therefore, when someone has insurance, the victim often turns to the insurance company to pay these costs.
In most cases, those involved in accidents will offer their insurance information to the other driver. Most of us have been taught that if we are ever in an accident, we should produce our insurance card with the carrier’s information and policy number on it. However, even if the other person does not want to produce their insurance information, there are still ways to find out if the person is covered.
If you are the victim of a car accident, it is extremely important to get the insurance information from the other driver if at all possible. It is likely that this insurance company will be paying your costs, so having good, accurate information is critical. However, the insurance company may be resistant to paying you, so finding an attorney who can represent your interests may be a good idea.
