Protecting yourself in an accident.

The first consideration must be for the safety of everyone. In any accident situation, stop at once. Get yourself and any others you can to a position of safety. But do not move anyone with a back or head injury unless you absolutely have to.

Check to see if you or anyone else is hurt, call First Responders, and seek prompt medical treatment as needed.

Give your name, address, date of birth, car license, driver’s license number, and name of your insurance company and policy number to the other driver. Get the same information from the other driver. Write down the names and addresses of all passengers and possible witnesses.

As soon as possible after an injury, call us about next steps (801)-255-2102. Do not give the insurance company a recorded statement until you have spoken to us.

How do I get a rental Car?

If your car was damaged in an accident and is not driveable, you may need to obtain a rental car if you do not have other transportation. Many insurance companies will not authorize rental cars on a direct billing to them until they have verified liability for the accident, by either interviewing their own insured or reviewing a report filed by the investigating police officer.

If you are seriously injured, you should call us at (801)255-2102. If you are not injured, you can contact the insurance company for the party at fault and request rental car arrangements, or you can contact your own insurance company if you have rental car coverage on your own policy. In the short term, you may have to charge your rental car on your own credit card, and get reimbursed by the insurance company. Some companies offer special rates for rented cars in an automobile accident case.

If you have questions call Nuttall, Brown & Coutts at (801)255-2102 right now. It never hurts to ask. The call will not cost you anything and there is no obligation. You need not go this alone.

What if the other driver is not insured?

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a driver who has no auto insurance, call us at (801)255-2102 now. Sometimes drivers who believe they are not covered may in fact have insurance from another source.

If you have uninsured motorist coverage on your own policy, or are a member of a household where the insurance coverage exists, you may be able to recover in full for your injuries, medical bills, or lost earnings for the same amount that you would have received if the other party had been insured. We at Nuttall, Brown & Coutts can assist you in making this claim.

Call us at (801)255-2102 before contacting your own insurance company and giving a recorded statement. With our experience we can more fully explain how uninsured motorist claims work and the procedures that are followed in such cases. If you are not injured, but your car is damaged by an uninsured driver, have your own insurance company repair your car under your collision coverage. If you do not have collision coverage, you will have to make a claim against the uninsured driver personally for damages.

Underinsured motorists?

If you are injured by another driver, either in your vehicle or another person’s vehicle, and it is not your fault, and if your bodily injury claim is worth more than the liability coverage purchased by the driver at fault, your own insurance policy may cover the difference, assuming the claim is properly presented.

This is an important coverage as it can help protect you and your family for catastrophic injuries you may suffer in an auto accident. Call us for more information at (801)255-2102. Do not let the insurance company take advantage of you.
