Common Mistakes to Avoid After a Car Accident

  • Declining immediate medical care
  • Waiting to contact a lawyer
  • Not documenting the scene
  • Admitting fault.
  • Failing to contact police
  • Not reporting to an insurance company
  • Giving recorded statements before seeking legal help

Getting Medical Care

Individuals injured in auto accidents often decline immediate medical care or refrain from going to follow-up appointments because they’re concerned about the high costs of medical expenses. Others simply don’t realize the extent of their injuries until they go home or even days after the accident.

Either way, those injured in car accidents don’t always immediately recognize the severity of their injuries and sometimes wait until it’s much too late.

Don’t make these same mistakes! Even if you don’t initially feel the severity of your injuries, these injuries can sometimes take a little bit longer to surface. Always first accept medical attention at the scene, and then contact our skilled car accident lawyers for help finding follow-up care and medical specialists who will address your healthcare need sand your case.

Collecting Evidence

Other mistakes that are sometimes made are things like failing to take pictures at the scene (if you’re able) or talking to the insurance companies about fault before you have legal representation, can interfere with your ability to be fairly compensated for your losses.

You’re entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, mental anguish, pain, and suffering and physical impairment. Your rights to just compensation must be protected and we can help.

“I’ve already left the scene of the accident. Now, what should I do?”

Once you leave the scene of the accident, the insurance company for the negligent driver at fault is going to use any delays in seeking medical care and any statements made by you regarding fault or injuries,  to attempt to minimize your injuries, argue that you were at fault, and ultimately completely deny your claim.

If you already left the scene of the car wreck, take immediate action to start building your case, proving that you were injured, and demonstrating that the other driver was negligent:

  • Seek medical attention to assess your injuries
  • Report the car accident to both your insurance company and the other driver’s
  • Contact the police, if you haven’t already.
  • Do NOT admit fault or discuss details; simply report the accident
  • Contact a car accident lawyer in Temple, TX, right away

As soon as you report your accident, the insurance companies and the police will want to take statements from you to get your side of the story. Cooperate fully with the police officer and tell them what happened but be careful not to admit fault. The insurance company will want to take a recorded statement from you. Tell them that you are simply reporting the accident, but refuse to give a recorded statement until you’ve spoken to an attorney.

Then call our offices right away. We’ll help you investigate the other driver’s fault, get you to the right medical care, and negotiate a reasonable and fair settlement with the insurance company on your behalf.

Remember!

The police officer will be looking in his or her investigation for facts from all parties involved. The police officer will then assign contributing factors based on his or her investigation. So be very careful what you tell the police officer! However, the negligent driver’s insurance company will be looking for ways to partially or fully blame you for the car accident.

Oftentimes the insurance company is not your friend and depending on the situation sometimes even the police officer may not be on your side.

You need an experienced and local car accident lawyer on your side.
