What Should I Do after a Car Accident?
- Remain at the scene - Never leave the scene of an accident, even if you were not at fault. Fleeing a scene can lead to criminal penalties.
- Check for injuries on yourself and passengers. If anyone is in need of medical attention, call for an ambulance.
- Call the police. When police arrive at the scene, they will evaluate the accident and write up a police report. Be sure to ask where you can receive a copy of the report.
- Gather information about the other driver's insurance, license plate, contact information, and addresses.
- Take photos of the damage and the surrounding scene.
- Seek medical treatment - Not all injuries show up immediately, so it is a good idea to see a doctor as soon as possible to make sure you did not sustain any internal injuries.
- Contact an attorney - Before talking to insurers, consult an attorney to learn your rights and how to file an effective car accident claim.
