Continued From Critical Tips: What To Do After You’ve Been in an Auto Accident

If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident there are important steps that you must take in order to protect yourself. Remembering to take the following steps when you’re involved in a car or truck accident will have a substantial effect on the outcome of your personal injury claim.

3) Statements at the Scene of the Crash

You are not required to comment on whose fault the accident and/or injury was or to offer additional information. Avoid making statements that might make the situation more complicated, and avoid creating conflicts in relation to the event.

4) Keep Copies of Your Records and Be Prepared to Provide Copies to Your Personal Injury Attorney

Make sure to keep copies of records that relate to the incident and/or injury you sustained. This may include hospital bills, medical diagnosis statements, bills related to property damage, and insurance records. You may also need to maintain records of lost wages if the injury has caused you to miss work.
