Yesterday, I told you not to sign statements in personal injury accidents. But if you do sign a statement, make sure you read it and get a copy of it BEFORE you leave. I know this sounds like common sense, but it’s not. Most people are so shook up from the accident they forget to leave the accident scene with a copy of either the accident report or their statement. Having a copy ensures that you have the copy that was completed at the time you left the scene. I have seen statements altered after the victim leaves the accident scene and the only way we could prove it was altered was because my client had her own copy. This is short and to-the-point today, so again, don’t sign statements, but if you do GET A COPY!
