A lot of people make mistakes when they have been in a car accident. Below are some of the most common mistakes that people make that can make them lose their claim against the other person.
Don’t apologise before speaking to accident compensation claims lawyers
Saying something like “I’m sorry” may seem like what you should do, but it can really cause you to have a problem if you make a claim in the future. If you’re apologising to the other person, they may say that you were guilty. Then again, if you say it’s okay or even accept it when they apologise, they may say that you’re accepting liability. Either of these things could be awkward when you’re trying to make a claim for your car accident.
Don’t appear uncertain before speaking to accident compensation claims lawyers
When you’re making statements to an insurance company or the police, it’s a huge mistake to look as if you’re uncertain. Only give the facts your certain about, leaving everything else out. It’s possible that you are remembering wrong and if you give the person the wrong information, it can hurt your chances of making a claim in the future. Only tell them what you know happened.
Never say you’re fine before speaking to accident compensation claims lawyers
Remember that you have adrenaline going through you right after a car accident. You may have injuries, you just don’t know about it yet. You may not feel them right now. You never know what is going to show up later. You should never say that you’re okay at the accident scene, because saying this can hurt your chances of having a successful claim if and when you decide to make one.
