Things to Avoid After a Traffic Accident

Things to Avoid After a Traffic Accident

Car accidents are frightening, even if you don't sustain a serious injury in the accident. Even mild car accidents can lead to serious legal complications, such as property damage and injury claims. The best way to help the legal process move efficiently is to be prepared and avoid mistakes. Below, you will find common legal blunders associated with traffic accidents.

  1. Never leave the scene of an accident. After a traffic collision, you may want to go home as soon as possible; however, fleeing the scene of an accident is a criminal offense.
  2. Never Apologize. Even a simple phrase like, "I'm sorry" could be taken as an admission of guilt. If the accident leads to a claim or lawsuit, you could be held liable just for saying "sorry."
  3. Be courteous. Never lose your cool. Angry outbursts, obscene language, and other irrational behavior can only complicate the accident. Do not apologize for the accident, but avoid acting out as well.
  4. Don't talk to the other driver's insurance company. If the car accident leads to a claim or lawsuit, avoid talking to the other driver's insurance company about the accident. If another insurance provider needs information, they can speak to your lawyer.
