After a Motor Vehicle Accident it is always advisable to get the insurance information of the other driver, whether or not you believe you are injured immediately after the accident. This will let your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers contact the other driver’s insurer no matter the case. However, at the very least you need to obtain the other driver’s home address and a phone number they can be contacted at.
If you or your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers attempt to contact the other driver and they refuse to work with your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers or continuously attempt to evade making contact with you or your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers, with just their address your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers will be able to file a lawsuit and have them served.
Additionally, if you were able to get the license plate number of the involved Motor Vehicle your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers will be able to check the registration of the driver and find their insurance information. This may allow your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers to directly contact the insurance company and it will hopefully, allow you to forego the expense of filing a lawsuit.
However, in any situation it is important to get as much information about the other driver as possible at the time of the accident, so that your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers have as many options as possible when it comes to obtaining compensation on your behalf.
