Your First Steps After A Motor Vehicle Accident

Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye. First of all, it is important to make sure that everyone at the scene is safe. Calling the police to report the incident is a great first step. They will help get medical attention to whomever may need it. It is also important to move all vehicles out of traffic, if possible. You will still want to stay close to the scene, as leaving the scene of an accident can result in serious charges.

Exchanging information with other drivers involved is also important. The negligent driver’s insurance company will be responsible for paying any damages, and if you can’t reach them, it will be difficult to obtain fair compensation. Get the phone number, license plate number, insurance information and address of any other drivers involved. You will also want to get the names and contact information of any witnesses. Finally, take pictures of any damage or injuries.

This may seem like a lot, but with this information, we can more easily put the pieces of your accident together and get you the help you deserve.
