Vanravensay pulled out from a stop sign and right into the path of BEYERHELM. The impact apparently killed Vanravensay.

This is what we consider to be an extremely serious accident with high damages due to serious injury or death of the drivers and/or passengers. Involved in this type of accident are competing claims all wanting the same insurance coverage. That means you often times have to file against your own insurance company which creates an unavoidable conflict of interest in giving your own company a recorded statement. So whatever you if you were in this accident, see a lawyer before agreeing to give a statement.
