If I’ve been hurt in an accident, what are some of the things that I can do to make sure the insurance company of the other driver doesn’t take advantage of me?

You should do the following:

  • Write down as much as you can about the accident itself, your injuries and any other losses (such as wages) you’ve suffered as a result of the accident.
  • Make notes of conversations that you have with people involved in the accident or the injury claim.
  • Preserve evidence of who caused the accident and what damage was done, by collecting physical evidence and taking photographs.
  • Locate people who witnessed the accident and who might be able to help you prove your case.
  • Notify anyone you think might be responsible for the accident of your intention to file a claim for your injuries.
