Things to do if you are involved in an automobile accident:
The first thing to remember if you are involved in an automobile accident is to stop and remain at the scene. If possible you are required also to call 911 to report the accident to the police and to request an ambulance if there were injuries. You are also expected to perform first aid to whatever extent is needed based on your ability to do so. You are not required to give a statement to the police at this time other than your name, driver's license, registration and insurance and that you would like to talk with your attorney before giving any statement. Call me and I'll do the talking for you. If you talk to the police at this stage anything you say could be held against you if you decide to sue the person responsible for the accident.Do not Talk to Insurance Adjusters
You can bet that a representative of the negligent person's insurance company will be on the scene immediately when an accident occurs. The purpose for their rushing right over is two-fold. First, they are concerned about their policyholder and want to make sure to get the paperwork on your claim started right away. The second and more subtle reason is to get you to admit that the accident was your fault so that they can use these statements against you in negotiations or if it comes to it, in court.
