Immediately following a traffic accident, you may feel stressed, overwhelmed and in shock, so before speaking to any insurance company representative, it is crucial to contact a personal injury lawyer for advice.
In general, you should not do or say the following:
- You are not hurt – Always seek medical treatment from a healthcare provider before making any declarations or signing any documentation about your injuries.
- You are at fault – Simply stick to the facts when providing the details of the accident.
- Agree to any terms – You may not be aware of the full extent of your losses. These losses may include physical or emotional health, property, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc. Agreeing to anything prior to consulting legal advice could be detrimental.
