Are car accidents considered to be a different type of injury?

No. When you are injured in an automobile accident you can use the same type of lawyer as you would use for other types of injuries. These can include accidents in a home or on private property. boating accidents, injuries due to someone else's negligence, slander, or other types of injuries. When you find yourself injured, there are different types of losses you could be suffering from.

The 'at fault' adjuster called you. Who are they, and should you speak to them?

The 'at fault' adjuster is the at-fault parties adjuster who will likely tell you they are speaking with you to conduct the preliminary investigation. They may approach you as if they are trying to help you, but be aware that they work for the other party's insurance company. They are speaking with you to gather information they can use to put together their client's case. You want to have a lawyer so you can refer this adjuster or the other party's lawyer to your lawyer who will then speak on your behalf and in a way that serves your best interest. 

What should you do if you aren't sure who is at fault?

If you really don't know who is responsible for the accident you were in, then contact a lawyer. Give them all of the facts and show them any of the evidence you have. They will be able to look over your case and they may do some of their own investigative work. They will let you know who they feel is at fault, where you stand, and what they feel you should do. Then, if they take your case, they will get started on putting your case together.
