The first what not to do is to admit fault. Do not admit fault that you caused the accident. Oftentimes, when people are involved in an accident, the adrenaline and the stress of the moment causes people to leave their vehicle, speak with the other driver and automatically admit that they were at fault and apologize. Following up with that, people will oftentimes do the same when the police officer arrives at the scene. This may happen and there might be other factors involved in the accident that you were not aware of that might have caused the accident or contributed to the accident. Perhaps there was a defective roadway design, perhaps there was a construction site that was not put together properly. Perhaps the other driver was speeding, and but for their speeding, you would never have been involved in the accident. I repeat, do not admit fault to anyone that you were involved in with an accident.
