  4. Never admit full or partial responsibility to anyone at the accident scene.
  5. Take pictures of the accident scene and property damage (both to your vehicle and any other vehicles involved in the collision).

  7. Be clear and concise about your injuries, pain levels, and symptoms when discussing them with police, EMTs, and emergency room personnel. It is important  that you never exaggerate your injuries and that you never downplay your injuries. Always be truthful.
  8. Follow through with all of the emergency room doctor’s treatment recommendations, including seeking additional medical treatment and/or following up with a specialist or primary care physician.
  9. Treat thoroughly and consistently for your injuries. Do not over-treat and be sure to avoid long gaps in treatment. Always follow your doctor’s orders. Do not “discharge yourself” from care at a treatment facility.
