Medina, OH asked in Car Accidents and Libel & Slander for Ohio

Q: I was in a car accident a few days ago. I was at fault. Both parties stated no injury.

The other person involved in the car crash stated that he was not injured, and was not insured. He got out of the car himself, was walking around just fine, declined any help (ie. Ambulance and such). No pain according to him. Told the state tropper this as well. He is now making an injury claim on my insurance. What can i do from here?

A: Let your insurance handle it. They are pros. I'll note that often people don't feel pain after the wreck because of adrenalin, they are freaked out and want to get home, etc. So it's not necessarily bogus, and your insurance company is very used to denying claims they think are inflated so leave it to them.
