5. Retain legal counsel to determine the true value of your claim – Insurance companies typically only offer compensation for physical injury-related expenses. In the aftermath of an accident, insurance companies may also offer to cover medical expenses, vehicle repairs, and income loss.
Is it normal to feel responsible for everything?
Why am I the type of person who believes everything is their fault? – Nobody is born believing that they are solely responsible for everything. It is something we learn from our experiences or decide to believe based on how they make us feel. Frequently, self-blame stems from a childhood trauma.
If we are abused, neglected, or abandoned, or if we lose someone we love, our childlike brain cannot comprehend what has occurred other than to conclude, “I did something wrong; it’s all my fault.” And our brain accepts this assumption as fact (psychology calls this a “core belief”). It then applies it to any other challenging situation until it becomes a pattern that we carry into adulthood.
Self-blame can also result from parenting styles that prevent us from being ourselves. If, for instance, you were shown love when you were ‘good’ or ‘quiet’ but shunned, criticized, or punished if you dared to be angry, sad, or express a different opinion, you would come to believe you have a ‘bad’ side.

What do you respond when someone asserts that you are not at fault?
If this involves something such as a family member’s death and you say, “I’m sorry,” and they respond, “It’s not your fault,” you can respond with something like, “I understand.” I mean that I sympathize with your suffering and understand what you must be going through.’
Details of the Accident – If the police are unable to determine who was at fault, or if the insurance company disagrees, your insurance adjuster will investigate the accident and use the details to determine who was at fault. The insurance company will calculate fault using photographs, maps, witness statements, medical records, and specialized algorithms.
Any evidence you can provide from the accident scene will be of assistance. Sometimes, the damage to your vehicle will tell a straightforward tale of a rear-end collision or an accident involving a left-hand turn in which fault is obvious. Before leaving the accident scene or even the hospital, you should take a deep breath and write down everything you recall about the collision, including anything the other driver said.
Note the name and contact information of any witnesses who approached you. Provide your insurance company with all the evidence you have, and if you feel your insurance company is not representing your best interests, consult an attorney about your legal options.
