What NOT to do if You are Involved in an Accident

Personal Injury Law Firms Huntsville | Crumbley-Blackwell & Associates, P.C.

  • Apologize for the accident: There will be time to do that later, initially, it can be interpreted as an admission of guilt or liability
  • NOT calling the police: A police report will help your personal injury case
  • NOT seek medical treatment immediately: Medical treatment will confirm your injuries were caused by the accident and not another event that occurred afterwards
  • NOT keeping records: After an accident, you should keep good records of medical diagnosis, medical treatment costs, travel costs, parking costs, consultant fees, wages lost, etc.
  • NOT contacting a personal injury lawyer: An attorney can help you asses your case, your rights, and your best interests after an accident
