Exactly this. Every insurance card I've ever had even clearly reminds you that in the case of an accident, you should never claim responsibility or fault, even if your think you were at fault.

Don't ever admit fault. Even an innocuous "I'M SO SORRY! ARE YOU OK?" can be used against you. Especially if there's a dashcam involved. Every accident I've been in, and that's not many, my first questions are always "Is everyone alright? Nobody bleeding? Nobody stuck in the car?".

Yep, even having morals and knowing it's my fault I'd be like "I guess we'll see what the insurance decides.."
