What Not to Do After a Car or Truck Accident
If you are involved in any kind of auto crash in Tennessee, it is equally important that you know what not to do as well as what you should do after an accident. Avoiding these missteps will help you later when you file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit:
- Do not leave the scene. If you or anyone else needs emergency medical attention, that must take first priority. However, unless you leave in an ambulance or go directly to the hospital, you are required to stay at the scene of the accident to exchange insurance information and wait for the police.
- Do not apologize for the crash. It may be a habit to apologize for something even if you are not responsible. However, the insurance company could use your apology after a wreck as an admittance of fault, regardless of the actual cause of the damage.
- Do not forget to gather all the necessary documentation. The shock and stress of a crash can cause drivers, motorcyclists and pedestrians to neglectfully document the accident. Nevertheless, you need to know as much about the other person, their insurance policy and their vehicle as possible.
- Do not overlook calling the police. Some people avoid calling the police for a number of reasons. This could be a bad idea, as the at-fault driver’s insurance could be false or otherwise invalid. Additionally, a police report may be necessary if you need to show proof of an accident.
- Do not avoid immediate medical treatment. Never assume that you are 100 percent okay after car wrecks, truck crashes or pedestrian accidents. To be safe, get a checkup so you can receive treatment before any injuries that are not visible get worse. It is also critical to continue treatment as recommended by your doctor and keep a detailed account of your medical paperwork. This will help your attorney move your case forward.
