What Not to Do After a Car Accident
The most important thing you can do after being involved in a car accident is to contact our team. Here are some things you should avoid doing to protect your insurance claim:
Saying You’re Sorry
Many drivers are in shock after an accident and may want to apologize to the other driver, even if it wasn’t their fault. You don’t want to say anything that can be construed as an admission of guilt, including “I didn’t see you there” or a simple “I’m sorry.”
Settling Your Injury Claim Quickly
Insurance adjusters want to settle claims and close files in a hurry. The problem is that some soft tissue injuries won’t become known for a couple of days after your traumatic accident. You’ll always want to wait at least a few weeks to find out if any injuries have occurred. Don’t settle a claim until you reach the point of maximum medical improvement.
Clinical documentation of an injury is an essential element of an injury claim. Don’t put off seeking medical treatment because insurance companies can use this against you. Obtain clinical documentation of any injuries sustained in your auto accident.
Signing Anything Before You Read It
Auto accidents are no fun and everyone involved wants to get back to their normal life. You should carefully read every document presented to you and consult our attorneys with any questions you have. Carefully examine all paperwork and make sure a waiver of claims is limited to a vehicle and not an injury claim.
