Common Mistakes Made Following a Car Accident
Winter is coming which means the rate of car crashes will surely increase over the coming months. Since many people don’t want to think about getting into an accident, they are not prepared for when they are actually in one. Read ahead to learn the common mistakes people make following a car accident.
One of the most common mistakes people make is failing to call 9-11 following the crash. Even if everyone appears to be fine and you’ve made an agreement with the other driver, you should still always call the police since you never know if the driver actually has insurance.
Another mistake is failing to get all the driver’s information. On top of their insurance, you should get their name, make and model of the vehicle, their license plate number and their home address.
Finally, it should go without saying that you should never leave the scene. Many people end up driving away if they figure the accident isn’t significant enough. It is a crime to flee the scene of a car accident so you could end up in serious trouble if you do. Always make sure to get out of your vehicle, call the police and make sure the other drivers are ok.
