What Not To Do After A Car Accident

Avoid these five common mistakes after your Chattanooga car accident.

  1. Admitting fault for the accident. Never admit fault to the other driver or to an insurance agent.
  2. I am waiting to get medical attention for my injuries. Go to the hospital as soon as possible after a car accident, even if you don’t feel injured.
  3. Giving a recorded statement to the insurance company. The insurance company is not tapping you to help. They are looking for a reason to deny your claim.
  4. Making a quick settlement agreement. Never settle fast. You have one year in Tennessee.
  5. Not hiring an attorney. You almost always get more money if you hire an attorney.
