A motor vehicle accident can happen at any moment, and understanding what to do after an accident can be especially daunting because of its unexpectedness and the complexities of the unique circumstances in each case. In addition to navigating insurance claims, you may also consider filing claims in court to potentially recover compensation for any losses you experienced as a result of the accident. This may include medical expenses due to serious injuries. When there are multiple people and multiple vehicles involved in an accident, it may also require an investigation into who the at-fault driver is, and which parties are responsible
