Possibly Regrettable Errors a Car Accident Victim Shouldn’t Make Car accidents can happen extremely fast, sometimes with lots of damage and suffering sustained in seconds. Regardless of who is at fault for the accident, the immediate effect is usually anxiety, making you vulnerable to making a bad call only to fret over it later. Read on for some mistakes to avoid if involved in a vehicle accident, no matter who between you and the other driver is at fault: Own UP
A Simple Plan: Lawyers
Unless you lawyer recommends it, don’t admit responsibility for a car accident. No matter how insistent the other driver’s insurance company is, just don’t say you think you may be to blame. This does not mean you don’t care, you’re just guarding yourself against likely severe consequences for fault, including wrongful death litigation if somebody died following the accident. Granted, you may feel some guilt in case you were texting and without concentration at the specific point of accident, but it’s also possible that the other driver is liable, and was likely speeding or not driving on their lane.
5 Takeaways That I Learned About Lawyers
Talk to the Other Driver’s Insurer Without Your Attorney It’s in your best interests not to say anything to the other party’s insurer unless through your personal injury attorney. Honestly, the other insurance company does not care for your best interests even if there’s nothing illegal they’re doing in contacting you without involving your attorney. The good thing is that you’re not required by law to report anything to them. So, get in touch with your personal injury attorney as soon as you can and have them take charge of your interests going forward. Flee the Scene of Accident It’s a felony to flee the scene of accident where someone has been injured or died. No matter if you believe you’re responsible or not, hold on and exchange information with the victim or property owner, and don’t make a serious case any worse that it currently is. Fail to Collect Accident Scene Information Certainly, your medication and health come first based on how severely you’re injured in an auto accident. Yet, if possible, capture photos of the accident scene and get witness’ information before going. Any uninjured passengers or even your attorney (if they may come there swiftly), could also help collect any evidence that later back your claims. Your attorney can rely on the information they receive from witnesses when assessing the issue of fault. The police report is also great to look at as it may corroborate your side of the story. Try to be calm and not do anything that may jeopardize your position if involved in a car accident. And if confused about what call to make, just call a personal injury lawyer.
