Make sure you are prepared and informed with these helpful tips. After a car accident, remember to:

  • Move your vehicle out of danger
  • Pull over to the side so that your vehicle is safe and out of traffic; turn on your hazard lights so vehicles passing by know that you are pulled over
  • Check if you or anyone is injured
  • Check to see if you or your passengers have been injured
  • If anyone needs medical attention, call for an ambulance immediately
  • Call the police
  • Wait for the police to arrive; they will write up a report, so request a copy of that report as well
  • Collect information
  • Try to gather as much information about the other driver, their insurance information, take photographs of the scene, witness contacts, and anything else that may be helpful; the more evidence you have, the stronger your claim will be
  • Seek medical treatment
  • Some injuries can appear minor at first, but may lead to health complications if left untreated; it is important that you always follow up with a doctor regarding your injuries
