If you have been involved in a car accident and plan to file a Pennsylvania car accident claim, there are a number of things you can do that will help your personal injury case. However, there are also many things you should absolutely avoid doing after a Pennsylvania car accident.

What Not to Do After a Pennsylvania Car Accident

There are several things you should not do after a Pennsylvania car accident, both on the scene and in the days and weeks to follow. Listed below are a few of the biggest "Don'ts" after a Pennsylvania car accident: 

  • Moving your vehicle from the scene;
  • Putting yourself at risk by waiting for help in a hazardous area, such as an area of high traffic;
  • Leaving the scene of the accident before the police arrive and say it is safe to do so;
  • Disposing of potential evidence, such as torn or bloodied clothing;
  • Discussing who you believe is at fault for the accident with anyone prior to speaking with a Pennsylvania car accident attorney;
  • Apologizing for anything (this could be construed as an admission of guilt); and
  • Agreeing to any type of settlement before speaking with your Pennsylvania car accident lawyer.
