Immediate Steps to Take After a Car Accident
The very first thing you should do is make sure that you are safe – if possible, move your vehicle or yourself out of traffic so that you do not get hit by other oncoming vehicles that may not be able to avoid the scene of the accident.
The next thing you should do is call 911. Even if you do not know whether you are injured, an officer will be dispatched to the scene. They can divert traffic and secure the scene of the accident. They will also interview you, the other driver, and any witnesses in order to prepare an accident report. While the accident report does not necessarily contain the whole story of the accident, it will include information that could be very useful later on. Make sure that you get one of the officer’s cards so that you can contact them later in order to obtain a copy of the report.
Next, you want to exchange identification and insurance information with the other driver. Use your phone to snap a picture of their license plate, insurance card, registration, and driver’s license to save time. While you have your phone out, take as many photos as possible of the scene of the accident and the damage to your vehicle.
Lastly, exchange contact information with anyone who witnessed the accident. Their statements may prove to be invaluable if you need to pursue a claim.
