Be Careful What You Say After a Car Accident

If you are involved in an car accident, it is very important to understand what should be done immediately after a collision takes places. After an accident, the immediate concern should always be the well being of yourself, other passengers and drivers.

Once it is established that everyone is safe and stable, it is vital that you say as little as possible, regardless if you think the accident was your fault or not.

Insurance companies are not always in your corner and are not always looking out for you best interests. They are in business to make money and have mechanisms in place to minimize their financial risk and exposure, which means potentially finding ways to deny your accident claim.

When your car accident case is reviewed, every detail of it will be scrutinized, including any potential admissions of guilt by your or your passengers that were made at the scene or anytime thereafter.

From an insurance standpoint, what is said after an accident by vehicle occupants can often be just as important as what happened. Saying the wrong things such as “I’m sorry!” or “I can’t believe I didn’t see that!” may be used against you and can affect any potential compensation that you may be entitled to if you have been injured.

It’s important to always be truthful and fully cooperate with police and first responders and NEVER mislead or lie to anyone. However, the less said, the better.
