  • Seven common mistakes made by drivers after a car accident

    January 1, 2021

    Accidents have been a very common occurrence in recent times due to vehicle congestion on roads worldwide. Accidents occur for various reasons and can cause severe injuries or result in death. Drivers must ride their vehicles legally and in the utmost safety and prudence. As I mentioned earlier, accidents can cause harm to life, property, and damage to other cars. This harm or damage can create a huge ruckus, and the person in question has to take a proper legal approach to solve the matter.

    Therefore, I, Priashna Singh, highly recommend seeking help from my law firm or me to get through all the legal dealings involved in a car accident. Many people involved in car accidents make big mistakes when dealing with the accident on their own and end up paying a huge compensation or facing a sentence. Below, I have mentioned some of the most common mistakes drivers make after a car accident.

    1] Ignoring medical aid: Accidents can cause severe injuries and can even put your life at risk. I believe a person should always prioritize his/her health over everything because good health ensures a good future. Immediately after getting involved in an accident, try to get assistance from people around the area to reach a nearby medical clinic. Get all your wounds treated by the doctor and note a line of action to be followed to properly treat the injuries. Also, get a medical certificate from the doctor which mentions the cause and severity of the wounds. This medical certificate is an important document for legal proceedings. 

    2] Ignoring important evidence: The area of the accident is full of evidence and witnesses. These witnesses are very crucial in providing an honest and rightful picture of the accident. After getting proper medical treatment, make sure to return to the accident site with one of your colleagues and try to collect any evidence you can find. Also, get in touch with the witnesses near the accident site and take their statements about the same. Share your contact number with them and convince them to represent your case as an eyewitness in court, if necessary.

    3] Hesitating to report the accident: If the damage done by the accident exceeds a normal limit, it is mandatory to report it to a nearby official body. The official authorities take the necessary legal action involved in car accidents and assist you whenever possible. Filing a report shows that you are a responsible citizen of the country and diligently follow all the constitutional laws. This report is the first step of the legal process that begins right after the accident. Ensure that the report contains all the information pertaining to the time of the accident, the site of the accident, the medical report, and the witnesses/evidence involved. 

    4] Confessing fault for the accident: Accidents occur due to the negligence of drivers, bad road conditions, pedestrian negligence, and many other reasons. You may think that the accident might have occurred due to your negligence and might think of confessing your fault to the authorities, but do not do so until a proper forensic investigation occurs. The investigation will dig up more evidence and proof, which will showcase a proper reflection of the accident. If you admit your fault without any evidence backing it, you may entangle yourself in many legal restrictions for no reason. Ensure that you just report the accident to the authorities and allow them to take all the necessary actions according to their legal procedures.

    5] Keep the accident’s events restricted to your close ones: The more people know about the accident, the more ruckus it will create. Accidents can create mental and physical stress on a person’s body, so he/she may feel it necessary to share their grievances with their close ones. Close friends and relatives make you feel comfortable and relaxed and help you find solutions to problems. But if you share your grievances on social media platforms, unimportant and hideous people may interfere in your misgivings. Avoid this scenario at all costs, as this may add fuel to the fire. All the accident events may get dragged onto social media, which will lead to unnecessary interference from uninvolved people. These events may put more stress and grievances on your shoulders and create a very chaotic situation.

    6] Do not readily agree to any compensation: Accident cases often deal with compensation fees and settlements. Accidents lead to the hampering of physical and mental health, property damage, and fiscal losses. The victim of such an accident suffers from physical and mental pain and deserves to get a compensation fee from the person in question. This compensation fee is decided on by considering many factors from the accident. Some of these factors involve the damage to the victim, the victim’s age, property damage, and more. After considering all the factors, the compensation fee is discussed with the authorities, and they decide whether this compensation fee is sufficient for the victim. So, you mustn’t settle on the compensation fee provided by the person in question or your insurance company without evaluating all the details related to you and the accident.

    7] Not taking legal assistance from an attorney: Accidents can cause damage to property and human lives, so it takes a legal angle. These legal activities require a proper and sturdy process that involves everything from collecting evidence to filing a legal case. These proceedings are difficult to deal with if you have no legal experience, so you must contact me as soon as possible. Contacting my law firm or me for assistance in the accident’s legal proceedings reduces the mental and physical toll taken on your body after the accident. The designated attorney takes care of everything involved in making a proper legal case and helping you get the compensation you deserve. My law firm also makes the documentation process and accident area evaluation very easy and comfortable. We also maintain the client’s security and safety until all the legal proceedings are handled.
