Rhode Island Personal Injury Best Lawyer Tips: 3 Mistakes To Avoid After A Car Accident

May 27th, 2021

When you’re injured in a Rhode Island or Massachusetts car accident, the clock starts ticking. There are deadlines, paperwork, investigations, and other hassles. We can help with all of this and ensure your case is off to a great start when you call or text Bottaro law right away – do not delay!

Here are just three (3) common mistakes that can sink your car accident case:

 

  1. Failing to Call The Police To The Car Accident Scene.
    Police reports add credibility to your case.  Police reports also contain valuable information that will help win your case.  For example, the other party’s contact information, insurance information, and any traffic citations. Also, at times, the police obtain witness statements and take photos, etc.

 

  1. Failing To Take Photos / Get Witness Information
     At the scene, it is better if you have a chance to also take photographs, especially of the other cars involved.  It is also advisable to take photos of your injuries right away – bruising, bleeding, etc. before the symptoms disappear.

 

  1. Failing To Get Medical Treatment Within 24 Hours
    Insurance companies evaluate how badly you may be injured in part based on how quickly you seek medical attention.  Delay allows big insurance to argue that you are not injured, or not injured as badly as you later may claim.
