In the moments right after a car accident, you will likely feel a plethora of emotions, ranging from shock to fear to overwhelming stress. These moments are also some of the most critical. What you say and do can have huge ramifications later on down the line, particularly if you find yourself in need of additional medical care.
Because of the adrenaline rushing through your system, at first you may not know how extensive your injuries are, or even if you have any. That’s why you should always go to a doctor. If injuries crop up later, as they often do, an initial doctor’s visit can help you make the claim that what you’re feeling now is related to the accident.
One of the most important things for you to do is never admit fault. When discussing the incident with the other drivers and police or reporting it to your insurance company, only state the facts. Even if you think your insurance company is supposed to be on your side, if the at-fault person’s insurance is insufficient, your company will have to pay, which goes against their best interests. Often they try to make a quick settlement, which results in a paltry payout. Once this payment is made, you can never go back and get more money to cover your medical costs.
