This lawyer was all set to lose an open and shut case, until another attorney made a huge mistake.
One of the first things your parents probably told you after you learned to drive was how to act if you ever get into a car accident. After making sure everyone is okay, you inspect your car and take photos, call the police, and phone up your insurance. And one major thing to know is that you shouldn’t say sorry to the other person, because in a legal sense, it shows that you’re admitting fault of the accident. You might just be used to saying sorry (maybe too frequently!) but in this case, you just have to shut your lips tight and let your insurance handle it.
This lawyer shared their story of a client who actually did admit guilt on the spot. She got into a car accident and immediately told the other driver how she’d been distracted and crashed. For the OP, this meant an open-and-shut case. Until, that is, the OP was paired with a rather smug lawyer with a lazy attitude.
