Rural areas have a much harder time getting police response for car accidents where injuries are not immediately apparent. When the police get to the scene they will start their investigation of what happened, who was at fault, if any laws were broken, work up a police report, etc. Remember no to admit fault when speaking with the officers about the incident, it may be hard to do, but try your best so you have a better case if you have to go to court over the accident.
Should I talk to the other insurance company after the accident?
If you are planning to hire an attorney, it is best not to talk to the other insurance company after the accident unless you do so with your injury attorney present. The insurance company will likely try to get you to admit some fault of your own during the call so never speak to them without your attorney present. An experienced car accident lawyer will know how to prepare you for this recorded statement to ensure that your chances of recovery are maximized.
