The scene of a Virginia accident is often chaotic. You have been hurt, and it seems that before you can attend to your injuries, there are other people demanding your attention. The other driver won’t stop talking to you, and the police are asking you a lot of questions. You are trying to cooperate, but you are scared, in pain, and confused.
Try Never to Say These 3 Things
It is important for you to avoid saying:
- It was all my fault. You do not want to take responsibility for the accident before you know exactly what happened. Maybe you were not at fault for the crash. If you were, you can always take responsibility later.
- I didn’t even see you. This may be evidence that you were distracted or not paying attention to the road.
- No, really, I’m fine. You may not be fine. You can’t make that determination without seeing your doctor.
Any of these statements may be misunderstood and later used against you.
