3 Mistakes Which can Affect Your Automobile Accident Injury Claim

If you are injured in an automobile accident, chances are that you want justice and compensation for your injuries. But did you know that there are mistakes that you may make at the scene that can affect whether you are able to get compensated for your injuries? Below are the three mistakes which may affect your ability to make a claim after an accident.

Not taking pictures

One of the biggest mistakes that people make is not taking pictures when they have been in a car accident. Almost everyone these days has a cell phone with a camera on it. If you are in an accident, use it to take some pictures. Take pictures of your car, the other person’s car, where the accident happened, and anything else that is important to the case. Having a good picture might just win or lose your case for you, so make sure that you have the right evidence if you think you’ll make a claim.

Not calling the police

Another huge mistake that people make is not alerting the authorities that you have been in an accident. Even when the accident seems minor, you don’t know what kind of damage the car or you might have. Even though you may not feel like you’re injured, you might have whiplash, meaning that you might need medical attention later on down the road. So let the police know that there was an accident, even if it was minor.

Not going to see a doctor

A lot of people think that they aren’t injured, but they quickly find out how wrong they were the next day when they are aching all over. It’s best to go to a doctor if you’ve been in an accident, even if you don’t think you were injured. Sometimes you have injuries you can’t see or feel because of the adrenaline coursing through your body. So go to see a doctor and let them know that you were in an accident. Let them look you over. You have nothing to lose and you might find out that you were injured after all.
