An automobile accident is an extremely stressful experience. Besides loss of property, there is often injury and pain to be dealt with, and the shock of what has happened can have a huge impact on a person’s thought processes. During the sometimes overwhelming aftermath, a car accident victim is likely to have impaired judgment, and make poor decisions. Here, we offer advice from experienced auto accident attorneys on mistakes to avoid.

    • Beware of on-the-scene car accident lawyers and adjusters. Make sure any auto accident lawyers you involve are reputable and experienced. This means waiting until after you are away from the accident scene and can contact an attorney you can trust. Even if the insurance company’s offer seems like it is good, do not accept anything presented to you at the scene, or you may end up liable for extra costs.
    • Secure the scene. Make sure to take photos or video of the accident scene, and secure the car you were in, to preserve evidence. All of this evidence is important in helping your car accident attorneys build a case for you.
    • Document your injuries. It is a mistake to try to push through, and “live with” the pain. Make sure to take note of any injuries immediately following an accident.

After a traumatic even such as a car accident, it is important to have a reputable and experienced partner to help you make the right decisions.
