Here is a list of some common mistakes people make after a car accident and hopefully you won’t make the same ones:
Not contacting the police. It’s important to contact the police so can they make a report and note the details of what happened.
Not getting medical treatment. Going to a doctor is important, they know where to look for because some injuries may not show up immediately and if they recommend treatment it is important that you complete the treatment.
Not completing treatment. Because they have a treatment regime for a reason and that’s to help you.
Not documenting the incident. After the accident write down your version of what happened, take some pictures and get some witnesses names and numbers if you can.
Giving a statement to the insurance company. Immediately after an accident you may not be aware of all injuries and so instead of giving a statement to the insurance company it’s time to talk to your car accident lawyer and we can help you with that.
Posting on social media. This can be problematic. If it’s a pub crawl or the big soft alternative you want participate in, just don’t put it on social media. It’s not gone help your case.
Not contacting a lawyer. This is probably the biggest mistake that people make. Lawyers have experience on how to handle these situations, they know good doctors, what treatments can be helpful because they heard from other people. And they also work with doctors to help on any long term affects of injuries.
So, call Blass Law, we can help you!
