A: You should definitely report the accident to your automobile liability insurance company who should appoint an adjuster and attorney to assist you.

Gathering and preserving evidence at this point is vital should a lawsuit be filed in the future.

It is unfortunately not uncommon for someone to think or be persuaded in the future to think of the collision as an opportunity to make some money.
