You can be forgiven if, like most people, you have not read the fine print on your auto insurance coverage. Outside of knowing you are covered in the event of an accident and have enough liability coverage, you may not pay much attention to the details. But the fine print on your insurance coverage can make a large difference if you are injured in an accident, as can the insurance of the driver who hit you.
The weather this year has been a departure from previous years in that we have weather to talk about that actually impacts how we drive. We've been blessed in recent years in that our Winter driving has been much like Summer driving without all the heat. Not so this year. The fact that Folsom Lake is filling up shows that we have had lots and lots of rain and it means that weather impacts how we drive.
I think we can all agree that no one is at their best after being involved in a car accident. It's at this time you may be dazed, confused, trying to determine what the heck happened and you are worried about your condition, the condition of any passengers and the other driver. This is NOT the best time to start making a lot of statements about injuries or fault. Knowing all of this the sad reality is that many people make these statements and they come back to haunt them.
Hard work and quick action often provides unforeseen benefits. This held true for a local family after our team obtained an actual video showing the collision and the facts supporting the claim made by our client.
