What to Do After a Car Accident
After an automobile collision, you should always report it to the police. Be as factual as possible and avoid making any assumptions in communicating with law enforcement or an insurance company. Many people who were not at fault in an accident nonetheless feel they need to offer an apology. Insurers may use this sort of behavior as an excuse to reject a claim.
