Get the Traffic Collision Report

There seems to be a trend in people waiving the traffic collision report. Don’t waive it; get it.

When you get into a car accident and it’s not your fault, chances are you can expect a call from the at-fault party’s insurance company to ask you about the accident. Often times the insurance company will ask you if they can record your statement. The statement they are asking to record is something they intend to use against you.

Sometimes the questions they ask are loaded with an answer they want, and [...]
