After your car accident, the other party's insurance company will typically contact you to gather details about the accident. If the other driver is responsible, their insurance company is supposed to provide financial compensation for your property damage, medical bills, and other losses.
But insurance companies are notorious for protecting their own interests by offering lowball settlements that may only cover a fraction of what you are actually owed. There is also a risk that your answers to their questions may be used to minimize your claim. Ideally, you should reach out to an attorney as soon as you are able so that he or she can speak to the insurance company on your behalf and make certain that you collect what you are truly owed.
