Drivers are less likely to use restraints when they have been drinking. In 2002, 69 percent of young drivers involved in fatal car crashes who had been drinking were unrestrained.

Anyone who has been in a car wreck knows it doesn't take much to implicate yourself in an accident that really isn't your fault.
1. Only speak about your car accident with your lawyer.
Careless statements at the scene of car wrecks can easily come back to hurt you even when they aren't true. You just don't know where that information lands. Many people understand this when it costs them $1000's at settlement time.
2. Talk with your lawyer first before you talk with your insurance adjuster.
"The lead car driver of a car accident was a man who I saw exit his vehicle just after the car crash. While huddled in the group of drivers, he said he didn't have a license or insurance. When the police arrived, he switched places with his girlfriend to make her the driver. |
What he did was illegal and detrimental to my case, but what he said was just as damaging to his."
A timely report to your insurance adjuster may be necessary, but talk with a lawyer first to organize the true facts of the case.
3. Never Give A Recorded Statement.
|"What you say to a car accident lawyer is privileged information. What you say to an insurance adjuster can and is used against you."|
A car accident involves many emotions and even today people will try to take advantage of you at the scene.
The insurance adjuster is not your friend!
Your case could go into litigation months or more down the road. It's unlikely you will remember everything that you said and your recording could be used against you by either side.
If you don't have a lawyer who handles car wrecks, I highly recommend you speak with
a lawyer first who will not take a percentage of car wrecks settlements.
