No one ever wants to experience the frustration and pain that can often accompany a motor vehicle collision. It is really important in this situation to not only know what to do but to know what not to do as well. Here are some things to keep in mind should you have the misfortune of being involved in a car accident in Massachusetts.
Keep in mind that you never want to say anything to the other driver following the motor collision. He or she may try to engage you in dialog, but at this point, it’s just best to avoid any communication at all. The reason for that is that anything you say to the other driver could be misconstrued at a later point by either an insurance company and/or an attorney, so, therefore, it is best to simply not say anything to the other driver.
Instead, what you should do is call the local police department. The responding police officer is the one that you should speak to regarding exactly what happened in the accident. You want to be clear to the officer and detailed in describing exactly what brought about the accident. Equally important at that point in time is to take out your cellphone and photograph any damages sustained to any of the motor vehicles involved in the accident.
