It can be difficult to know who to speak with in the minutes, days, and hours after a car accident. In addition, in the confusion following a crash, you may speak without thinking or say something you don’t mean. While it is important to speak with both the other drivers involved in your crash as well as the police officer who responds, be sure not to admit guilt during these conversations or apologize. In the same way, it is very important not to give an official or recorded statement to an insurance company before clearing your head, getting the medical attention you need, and speaking with an attorney. Generally, a Dallas Texas car accident lawyer can help you better understand your case and how to proceed in the wake of an accident.
