The main mistakes in an accident

Lawyers advise: don’t change the location of cars. Even under reason: “Your cars interfere with traffic” or similar circumstances. The only thing can be the reason for changes in the car’s location – when the position of the car threatens human life or health.  Call an ambulance, insurance and police immediately. No need to try “agree on the spot.” You have not any documents confirming your rightness. It could lead to unpleasant situations in court. You must have a lawyer’s number talking to official instances.  Trying to leave the crash spot  is the main mistake. It is better to solve the problem by official methods  even if  your car is not badly damaged. Staying in the car is a bad idea. After the accident you need to leave the car immediately. First you need to shut down the engine. If the car was hit hard some of it spare parts may be damaged. This often leads to fire. Secondly some cars driving on the road may not notice the car and crash into it. It is useful to wait for the arrival of ambulance and police on the roadside. Remember to be on the highway is allowed only in a reflective vest.

Lack of evidence. While you wait for the police to arrive you can take as many photos as possible on your phone:

– Location of the car

– Vehicle damage

– Numbers of accident participants

All this will help to prove your rightness in a court. It is also a mistake to refuse to check what is written. If you are asked to sign something, be sure to read beforehand. If it’s not what you said, do not sign. It is better to fill aall documents with a lawyer. The UniExper help you to choose a quality lawyer.
