What Are My Rights and Responsibilities After a Car Accident?

After a car accident, you have a number of rights and responsibilities. Your responsibilities include:

  • The responsibility to seek medical care for your injuries;
  • The responsibility to report the car accident to the police; and,
  • The responsibility to report the car accident to your insurance company.

All three of these things are very important; if you do not do them, you may jeopardize your chances of recovering compensation. Your rights include:

  • The right to refrain from giving your insurance company a recorded statement;
  • The right to seek damages by filing a car insurance claim or a car accident lawsuit; and
  • Your right to reject a first settlement offer and negotiate for a higher amount.

You also have the right to work with a competent Atlanta personal injury attorney who can guide you through the claims process and advocate for you every step of the way.
