What Not to Do after a Car Crash

It’s an unfortunate situation, but car crashes are far more common than we’d like, often leaving individuals suffering from the catastrophic results. This is often a cause for initial shock, and individuals don’t know what to do immediate following the crash.

Not everyone know what steps to take after a crash to protect their rights. Even worse, they don’t know what to avoid after the accident. At Levine and Wiss, we aim to educate potential clients so they know what not to do after a crash.

Don’t Leave the Scene

Whether right after the accident or before receiving proper information, avoid leaving the scene of the accident until you have everything you need. This can hurt your ability to seek compensation and hold the negligent party accountable.

Don’t Apologize

Apologizing can be looked at as an admission of guilt. The defendant’s insurance company can take your statements and use them against you to minimize your claim.

Don’t Speak with the Other Team’s Insurance Company

At least, until you have an attorneys. The defendant’s insurance company’s goal is to pay as minimal a payout as possible. This means they’re going to try to find any way to get you to say something that they can use against you. Have an attorney if the other party’s insurance company is going to try and get comments.
