Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Whose fault was the accident? Was anyone cited by the police? Were you driving her vehicle? Do you have your own insurance?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
the lady was at fault and she was cited at the scence and i was driving my girlfriends car at the time and i do have personal insurance just not my own car insurance
I see. Thank you for providing this additional information, Dushon.Since the other driver was at fault, you would typically file a claim with her insurer, seeking reimbursement for the injuries you have sustained, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering incurred as a result of the accident.If the insurer is not willing to compensate you fairly (most provide a very low offer or attempt to avoid payment on the claim altogether), it would be best to retain a local personal injury attorney to represent you in this matter. These attorneys typically work on a contingency fee basis so there should be no fee unless they prevail on your behalf.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
