Accident may happen out of the blue, and would perhaps leave you with a minor or severe damage depending on the impact of the said incident. In the aftermath of the reported event, pain and expenses may be incurred.

Exceptions do exist in the dozen or so “no fault” states, where drivers have to collect from their own insurers except in cases of “serious” injury. Learn more about car accident cases.
