Being involved in even a minor car accident can be very unsettling. You don’t know what your rights are, how severe your injuries are or how you will manage to get the car replaced or fixed. Injuries from a catastrophic auto/truck crash tend to be more severe, with costly medical bills and months of lost wages. Should you file a lawsuit?
