Do’s & Don’t’s

THE ATTORNEYS AT JOHNSON & LUNDGREEN HAVE CREATED THE DO’S AND DON’T’S FOR YOU TO FOLLOW IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT.

TO ENSURE YOU OBTAIN THE APPROPRIATE INFORMATION, CALL US TODAY.  EVERY CASE IS DIFFERENT.   MAKE SURE YOU GET THE INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO YOUR CASE.

Do:

Don’t:

  • Be courteous and cooperative with the investigation officer
  • Sign anything without knowing your rights
  • Get the other driver’s name, address, phone number and insurance info
  • Fail to report an accident if anyone may be injured, or if the damage to either vehicle is more then $750.00
  • When possible, take photographs and/or videos of the vehicles, visible injuries, and the scene of the accident
  • Give a recorded statement without getting some good legal advice first (even honest people can be hurt by recorded statements)
