While we all hope that we never get involved in a car accident, it does happen sometimes and it is important to know the actions you need to take if it happens to you. An accident comes with plenty of consequences. If you or the other driver got injured, there will be medical bills to settle and both cars might need to get repaired. The law requires that the guilty party shoulders the bill but determining the guilty party is not always easy. There are also plenty of drivers who carry inadequate insurance or none at all and you might find yourself settling bills even when you are innocent.
