What should I do if I was involved in a car accident?
Being involved in an accident is a traumatic, life altering event. In a split-second, victims of car accidents are faced with injury, mounting medical bills, questions concerning liability, insurance and property damage and the prospect of legal action against those who caused the accident. Knowing what to do ahead of time can make the legal process run much more smoothly. Below are few important steps to keep in mind:
Call 911 and seek immediate medical attention if necessary. Report that you have been involved in an automobile accident and provide your location. As first responders arrive, be respectful and cooperative. In your own words, explain to the officer how the automobile accident occurred so a crash report can be made. Politely request a copy of the crash report once the officer is finished.
Collect the name, phone number, and insurance information from each driver involved and collect the contact information for any witnesses. If possible to do so safely, photograph each vehicle involved, along with anything that may have contributed to the accident (potholes, disabled vehicles, construction cones or any other obstruction in the road way).
