What do I do after a car accident?
The moments following a car accident are incredibly overwhelming but they’re also the most crucial. Regardless of how stressful the situation is, it’s imperative that you stay calm and focused.
- If the accident is minor and you feel safe to do so, you should try to move your vehicle out of traffic.
- Check for injuries and call and make sure an ambulance is called for anyone in need of medical assistance.
- Gather information from other drivers, including vehicle descriptions, license plate numbers, and the accident scene location. If a police report was filled, be sure to write down the officer’s name and badge number
- Take photos of the scene and the vehicles involved to have an accurate record of the damage.
- In these moments, you want to say as little as possible. Apologizing or saying anything that might be perceived as an admission of guilt can be used against you.
