A: As soon as the injured party (or anyone for that matter) has legal questions, one should consult with an attorney. In this instance, the injured party should consult with an accident/injury lawyer as soon as possible so that he/she can be made aware of his options and what is to be expected from the insurance company of the at fault party or any other insurer. Most attorneys in this field will provide free, no obligation consultations---I know my firm does---so you should speak with a few attorneys and then if you believe it is in your best interest to hire one, then hire the one with whom you are most comfortable.
