Things NOT to say after a car accident Don't say “I'm sorry” It's easy to feel sorry for other drivers, even if the accident wasn't your fault. Don't say, “We're going to take care of this on our own.” Don't say, “I don't need a doctor.” Don't say ANYTHING on social media. Don't say “YES” After a car accident, you should eliminate the word “sorry” from your vocabulary. The fact is that simply telling someone that you're sorry could be taken as an admission of your guilt and used against you in the future.
Admissions of guilt include saying things like: I didn't see you or you came out of nowhere. Don't admit that you took your eyes off the road, ignored traffic signs, or did anything else that could imply that you were at fault for the accident. You should never speculate about the accident or give an official statement. Both can be used in a narrative that may be different from what happened, but which is now impossible to retrieve or delete from the records.
Avoid minimizing the value of your car accident claim by saying these words. Even if you don't feel injured after an accident, it's in your best interest to seek medical attention. Insurance companies avoid spending as much money as possible, often at the expense of the victim of a car accident.
