Safety after a Car Wreck
While the most stressful parts of any car wreck usually come long after it’s over, the initial few minutes after the wreck are vital. There are myriad ways this situation can unfold. You may find yourself blocking a busy interstate or in someone’s yard, with your front end wrapped around a tree or with the front of the car that hit you in your backseat. You have to exercise some sensibility here. You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t make things even more complex for your vehicle accident attorney.
Remember not to try to explain to the other driver what happened. The last thing you want to do is say something that isn’t exactly true, such as “I didn’t see you”, “My brakes didn’t seem to work” or something similar. In these cases, you’re basically saying the accident was your fault in one way or another and this may come back to bite you, especially if it turns out that every other piece of evidence points to the accident not being your fault in any regard. Your car wreck attorney will go over all of this with you after the accident.
