What To Do When A Car Crash Is Your Fault

Mrs. López and all of the Staff that had helped us it has been an absolute pleasure. They always had an answer to our questions and treated us with respect but most of all they listened.

Don’t lie to police officials, but also don’t admit that you were at fault. Aside from mentioning that you are at fault, try to avoid indicating any type of fault. So don’t apologize for going too fast or not looking both ways. These can be used against you, and they likely will if the other driver decides to hire an attorney

Follow the proper steps to take after a car crash:

  • Call the insurance company
  • Exchange information with the other driver
  • Use caution when speaking to the other driver and witnesses
  • Call the police
  • Contact an attorney


Each state has different laws in terms of fault assignment. In some states a driver can only sue if there is a certain amount of fault on the other driver. These laws will help you have an idea of what you need to do in order to protect yourself. An attorney can help you with this very much. If you are in the Lakeland FL area, have your claim reviewed by a car accident lawyer in Polk County FL.
