A: If you have an attorney already, it would be best to schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns in person with them.

If you do not have one yet, I would recommend retaining someone experienced with personal injury.

My firm’s website also has helpful tips on what to do until you have an attorney to represent you in dealing with the insurance company. Lokk in the Practice Areas section.
