We all do it. We all text things to our friends that we wouldn’t say to anyone else. We often tell people what we think they want to hear rather than the truth. However, when we do that, we may risk hurting our own potential legal recovery after a Milwaukee auto accident. Some texts that are either taken out of context or that misrepresent what really happened may ultimately hurt an individual’s recovery during settlement negotiations or at trial.
Accordingly, it is important to think before you text after a Milwaukee car crash.
Some kinds of texts you might want to avoid (if you don’t mean them to be true) include:
- I feel fine.
- I’m not going to work, but I’ll be at the party!
- Was about to text you back when I was in a crash!
- UGH! I knew I was too tired to drive.
- Well, I don’t have to tell my lawyer EVERYTHING!.
These texts and others like them may seem harmless at the time that you are sending them but have a significant impact on your potential recovery. Thus, it is important to always tell the truth and to be careful about what you put in writing.
