Frequently asked questions about Arizona car crashes

| Jan 9, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Car accidents in some form or another are worryingly common, but when it comes to being involved in one, many people do not know what to do. There are many factors to take care of after a car accident, the most immediate one being safety.

There are also many factors beyond safety after an accident that you must consider, and it is important that you give attention to the emotional trauma that you may suffer as well as the financial damages due to the state of your car.

If I believe that an accident is my fault, should I admit it?

Your opinion on whether you were at fault or not at fault is a subjective one, meaning that you may be right or wrong. Therefore, you should not get involved and let the insurance companies investigate. Admitting fault could be very damaging for you.

Should I keep medical records when I go to the doctor?

You should keep all medical records that you receive in relation to your car accident. This should only ever be shared with your attorney or your doctors, however.

Can I keep driving my car if the damages are only minor?

Even if the damages appear to be minor ones, you should have the car checked to make sure that it is safe to drive going forward.

How can I file a claim?

You can seek personal guidance if you believe that you might have a personal injury claim on your hands because of a car accident. It is always a good idea to conduct thorough research to see how the law applies to your situation.
