A: You should talk to a personal injury lawyer's office right away.

A lawyer could determine quickly if there is any coverage available, whether from the other driver, the owner of the car, or your own policy. It is always best to talk to a lawyer quickly so they can help you deal with insurance adjusters and medical providers who are expecting payment. Generally in personal injury you don't pay the lawyer unless they recover money for you.
