Pat Crispi, owner and founder of Keogh Crispi Law and a specialist in personal injury cases is urging all drivers in New York who are involved in an automobile accident to take their time and not rush into anything in the immediate aftermath of the incident. There are many reasons for following this policy, but unfortunately, nobody ever expects to be involved in an accident, and if and when the time comes, it can be very easy to make bad decisions. —
Immediately after an accident, people are disorientated; there is the shock of the incident, potentially a large and sometimes deafening noise, pain, fear, and concern. Police and other emergency services can arrive on the scene, and it can be an overwhelming experience for all parties concerned. Unfortunately, virtually everyone has a cell phone, many of which will be recording, so anything said has a high probability of being caught on camera.
If, for instance, the driver involved in the accident is with their family or partner, they might try to reassure their husband or wife by saying “I am fine” out loud. This could be caught on camera, only for an injury to become more apparent in 24 to 48 hours. However, suppose the defense or the insurance company gets access to that cell phone footage. In that case, they will argue that immediately after the accident, the injured party said they were totally fine.
“We want to deliver the best result for our clients, to help them achieve justice, and to ensure that they receive the maximum financial compensation they deserve,” said Pat Crispis of Keogh Crispi Law. “Our advice is to say nothing to anyone other than to fulfill your legal obligations to the police. Choose your own attorney, rather than agreeing to speak to someone that hands you a card at the roadside or hospital. Take your time before speaking to your insurance company; always remember that your insurance company is a business whose priority is to minimize its costs. By taking your time and ensuring you receive the medical treatment required, you will be in a much better position to ensure you receive appropriate and deserved compensation.”
