Mistakes to avoid after a car accident: How to protect your rights..
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident is not something that happens very often. Indeed, many people will go through without ever being involved in one. As such, most are not aware of the do’s and don’ts. Herein, we discuss the mistakes you don’t want to make after being involved in a car accident:
1. Don’t hesitate to call the police. Get an officer to the scene and a record made;
2. Don’t admit fault. Often an accident can leave one a bit disoriented. You may not realize what really happened, and therefore, anything you say might be wrong;
3. Don’t wait to get medical care if you need it. A delay can work against you;
4. Don’t hesitate to seek legal advice from an experienced injury attorney. These consultations are usually free. Get informed and educated, then make the best decision for yourself.
