Speaking To The Other Driver’s Insurance Company Without A Lawyer
If possible, don’t speak to the other driver’s insurance company without first consulting a personal injury lawyer. The insurance company is not your friend, even if they act like it.
Don’t Sign Anything Without Talking to a Personal Injury Lawyer First
If someone asks you to sign something after an accident, make sure you understand what you’re signing first. It could be a waiver of your rights or an agreement to a low settlement offer.
Delay Seeking Medical Attention
Even if you feel fine immediately after the accident, it's essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries may not manifest symptoms immediately, and documenting your medical condition promptly is crucial for insurance claims. Delaying medical attention may also be detrimental to your health.
Not Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
One of the biggest mistakes a person can make after getting into an auto accident that has caused injury to yourself or others is to not contact a personal injury attorney. Car accident victims rarely fully understand the complexities of the claims process, which necessarily involves documentation of damages and injuries. Part of denying claims is claiming injuries are not related to the car accident, are not properly documented, or are a “preexisting condition.” Insurance companies love to snoop around in medical records, trying to find anything and everything in your past medical history to possibly avoid paying legitimate claims.
