What To Do Following An Accident

Being involved in a car accident is a frightening experience. It’s important to take the proper steps to protect yourself. Follow these steps immediately following a car accident:

Stay At The Scene Of The Accident

Leaving the scene may expose you to charges of hit-and-run. Stay at the scene to exchange information with other drivers involved in the crash. If law enforcement has been called, stay until they let you know you can leave.

Seek Medical Attention & Accept Any Treatment Offered

If anyone is hurt, call 911 immediately for medical assistance. In the event medics arrive on the scene and offer to check you for injuries, accept the offer. Refusing medical attention at the scene may be viewed negatively if you claim injuries later.

Document The Scene & Collect Possible Evidence

Don’t rely on police to gather all the details. If you can, take pictures and video of the scene. Be sure to take numerous photos of any vehicle damage. Take down information on the vehicles that were involved, like the make, model and license plate. Get the names and contact information of witnesses.

Be Careful About What You Say

Don’t apologize or make any promises to the other people involved. Even if you think you may be at fault, don’t discuss it at the scene of the accident.

Notify Your Car Insurance Company

Many insurance companies require you to notify them of any accidents.

Retain A Lawyer

In the aftermath of an accident, stories may change and injuries may surface weeks after the crash. It’s vital to have proper legal counsel to represent you and help you obtain fair compensation.
