South Sacramento Traffic Accident FAQ

Can I get my vehicle repaired at any auto shop after an accident?

You can get your car repaired at any auto body shop after an accident. Your insurance company will work directly with the body shop, or have you submitted an invoice for the repair cost. This is the general rule if you recover the repair costs from the at-fault party's insurer. But you can also file a claim with your own insurance company.

Should I admit fault in an auto accident?

Do not admit fault for a car accident, even if you think you caused it. You may not know all the circumstances and facts surrounding the accident. If you admit fault, you or your insurance company will be liable for paying for the damages. Fault will be determined upon further investigation.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer after My Car Accident?

Whether or not you need a personal injury lawyer after a car accident depends on various factors, such as the severity of your accident, the extent of your injuries, the insurance coverage available, and the complexity of the legal and financial issues involved. If you sustained severe injuries, are facing significant medical expenses, are dealing with a  difficult insurance company, or are uncertain about your legal rights, it may be beneficial to consult with a qualified personal injury lawyer who can provide expert advice and representation to protect your interests and pursue appropriate compensation. It's always advisable to seek legal consultation and review your specific circumstances to determine if hiring a personal injury lawyer is necessary in your case.
