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 which can end up hurting your case.
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 fault during these conversations or apologize. You may think you were at-fault, but later analysis could show that you both shared fault.
In the same vein, it’s 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 speaking, a Dallas Texas car accident lawyer can look out for your best interests, as well as help you better understand your case and how to proceed in the wake of an injury accident.
