6: Common Mistakes After an Accident

You’ve been in a car accident. The adrenaline is flowing, your head is spinning, and your emotions are running high.

While you probably know what to do after a crash, such as pulling your car off the road to a safe location and seeking medical treatment, did you also know it’s just as important to know what NOT to do in the aftermath?

- Leave the scene of the accident

- Neglect to call the police or law enforcement

- Downplay your injuries

- Forget to gather evidence such as pictures and witness information

- Admit you were at fault

- Fight the insurance companies yourself

After an accident, it’s extremely important to know what mistakes to avoid so you can receive a fair and proper settlement.
