What To Do After A Car Wreck
Your Safety Is The Priority
Immediately after a car accident, get yourself out of danger, help others if you can and call the police and an ambulance if required. At this point, it is also vital to get evidence of the accident, such as photographs of the car wreck from all possible angles both inside and outside the vehicle. Get names and contact information from any eyewitnesses. Even of the other driver admits fault, he or she can change their story later.
Do Not Admit Any Fault
Remember that the information you provide and your statements could be detrimental to your insurance claim. If you say you were partially at fault for the accident, the other driver’s insurance company can use that information against you and reduce the amount it has to pay. Even minor admissions, such as driving a few miles over the speed limit or not looking both ways at an intersection where you had the right of way, can cost thousands of dollars from your settlement.
Contact An Attorney
This step is crucial to get the compensation you deserve. Any mistakes made at the beginning of your personal injury case can be hard to correct later. Our law office offers a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions. Do not make a recorded statement, sign any release form, or accept a settlement offer before you have obtained legal advice.
