Taking action after a car accident helps preserve important evidence so your case can be properly presented. But you have to be careful to take the right steps so the integrity of your case is not compromised. Here are some tips to keep in mind, and if you are able, to do immediately after a car accident:
One thing not to do is admit fault. You will need to give the responding officer an accurate account of what happened, but do not take the blame for the accident or offer an apology. Saying you are sorry and apologizing can be construed as an admission of liability, making it harder for you to recover what you deserve.
