FAQ: What things should I not do after an accident?

After a car wreck, the things you don’t do are just as important as the things you should do.

For example, you should call a lawyer as quick as possible, but, do not ever provide the other driver’s insurance with a recorded statement. These insurance adjusters are tricky, and they will try and trap you with confusing questions and illicit guesses and estimates from you on things you simply do not know. Car insurance companies are in the business of paying as little as possible on claims, while collecting their insurance premiums, there is nothing good that can come from speaking with them without a lawyer. In addition, you should also avoid putting off a visit to the doctor if you are hurting. Many times clients will attempt to “tough out” a serious injury. This often leads to a large gap in treatment which the insurance will incorrectly interpret to mean that the client wasn’t hurt. If you feel injured, go to the doctor. Car accidents are difficult times and can often be overwhelming, if you are injured, call a lawyer and let them help you avoid the pitfalls and mistakes that may hurt your claim and prevent you from getting justice.
