What Not to Do After A Car Accident

Unfortunately, there are car accidents in Hacienda Heights all of the time. If you have the misfortune of being involved in one, acting in the wrong way can have damaging results. Here are a few things you should never do if you are in this situation.

Refusing Medical Help

You should never refuse medical attention after being involved in an accident. It is wise to head to a healthcare facility as soon as possible, even if you feel fine since some injuries don’t present themselves until much later. Being attended by a physician right away will help later if you start to develop symptoms.

Leaving the Scene of the Accident

Do not drive away without speaking to witnesses. Sometimes there are people at the scene who can be useful in the event you have a problem later. You should talk to some of them and jot down their contact information. It is far easier to prove that you were not the negligent party when you have one or more people backing up the story you are telling.

Making Arrangements With Insurance Companies on Your Own

Negotiating with insurance companies on your own should never be an option. Regardless of how savvy you believe you are, the people who are trained to do this are far ahead of you. They are likely to offer you far less than your injuries and damages are worth. The best way to avoid being placed in this predicament would be to hire a lawyer and have them handle this on your behalf.
