I was involved in a bad car accident today, what should I expect next?


I was turning at an intersection this morning and someone ran their light and t boned my car. It is totaled. I am being told to call the other person's insurance company and honestly I am not comfortable with that. I also had to be seen at the hospital, have had to pay for some expensive medication, and will have to buy a new car because the insurance is only going to pay off my existing loan balance. So what should I expect with this. I have never been in a car accident.

    Thanks windy. May have to call a lawyer. I am ignorant when it comes to all this. Never had an accident before and I just don't know what to do.

    I spoke with my insurance and they told me they'd start the claim but that I needed to call the other person's insurance. I do have the other persons insurance info from the police report and a witness info. Just don't know what to do with the info.

    We lucked up. We had a witness and cameras that show fault. I have no idea about state laws for medical but I do know the hospital said I needed to submit a form with the other person's info to the hospital. Thanks!
