Charlotte Car Accident Lawsuit: What Not to Do 

People are always telling you what to do, but hardly anyone tells you what not to do.  Sometimes, knowing what not to do is more important. You can actually hurt your car accident lawsuit if you do or say certain things (or don’t do or say certain things), so learning about what not to do can increase your chances of reaching a successful claim resolution.

You want to receive a financial award for a car accident caused by someone else, so here are some tips on what not to do when you’re filing a car accident lawsuit.

Tips on What Not to Do When Filing a Car Accident Suit in Charlotte

There are a number of ways you can improve a car accident lawsuit and a number of ways you can harm one. Here are some tips on what not to do.

Don’t Try to Go it Alone

Some people don’t know the ins and outs of car accident lawsuits, but they think they do. They are independent, strong individuals, and they don’t need anybody’s help. They’ve got this. Unfortunately, they don’t always “got this.” 

Everyone needs other people sometimes, and a good time to reach out for a helping hand is when you are dealing with a legal situation. Even though you know you deserve to receive a settlement for a car accident caused by someone else’s carelessness, you might need a little help proving your case.

Some people don’t get help because they think they can’t afford a lawyer. They don’t realize that a lawyer can work out a contingency fee arrangement, which means they don’t get paid until after your case has been won. You pay for your lawyer’s services with your settlement check, which means you pay no money up front.

You don’t have to go it alone, and it doesn’t usually benefit you substantially to do so. 

Don’t Forget to Collect Evidence

One thing that can prevent you from being able to file a claim at all is failing to collect evidence. Everyone knows that evidence is needed to win a case, so you must gather evidence to prove that someone else caused your car accident and not you. 

You can use video evidence, photographs, testimony from witnesses, medical evidence, and physical evidence to prove your case.

Don’t Talk to the Insurance Company

An important thing not to do: Don’t talk to the at-fault person’s insurance company without advice from a lawyer first. 

It’s very easy to say the wrong thing by accident, and your statements can sometimes be used to make you look at least somewhat to blame for your car accident. Let your lawyer handle communications with the insurer. At the very least, wait until you’ve talked to a lawyer before talking to the insurer.

Do Not Hesitate to Call a Lawyer

Finally, you should not hesitate to talk with a lawyer about your claim. The call and conversation are free, so you have nothing to worry about and nothing to lose. The Nye Law Group can be reached through the form below, or you can call 704-285-6319.
