If you have recently been injured in a Miami car accident there are certain things that you should avoid doing in order to preserve the value of your case. Here are a few of our recommendations:
Avoid speaking to anyone but the police about the accident. Accidents are confusing, you may be incorrectly assuming things that may have happened, distances, times, weather, etc. Try only speaking to the police officer.
Avoid making an apology or expressing regret. Statements like these may be taken and understood that you were at fault or caused the Miami car accident to occur.
Avoid leaving the scene of the accident. When you are in an accident in Miami Florida you will want to gather some information from the other driver prior to leaving the scene. Things like registration, insurances, and drivers’ license should be exchanged and provided to the police. If you were seriously injured then don’t worry about these items, it is more important that you seek immediate medical attention.
Avoid attempting to settle the case on your own. You shouldn’t try to resolve your car accident case on your own but rather you should hire an experienced Miami car accident attorney to represent you in your complex case.
