Steps To Take Following A Car Accident

A car accident may occur in the blink of an eye, and in that split second it can cause that person's life to change entirely.

Fortunately, there are steps a person can take after an accident to avoid further hardship once the scene has been cleared and everybody has left.

The following includes some simple steps to take following a traffic collision which can also help accident victims to keep calm and relaxed, knowing that they have a plan of action in place:

  • Check for injuries
  • Call 911 to report injuries
  • Report collision to the police
  • Take pictures and videos of the scene
  • Write down all information leading to the collision
  • Move your vehicle to a safe location
  • Exchange driver information
  • Exchange witness information
  • Never admit fault or blame accident on anyone
  • Never speak with anyone other than police regarding the accident
  • Provide accurate police report and obtain copy of the report
  • Obtain medical attention following the accident
  • Notify your insurance agency of accident
  • Contact an experienced car accident attorney

It is essential to preserve a thorough record and notes following a car accident for future referral. This information may be used by a lawyer to establish a strong case against a negligent person or entity that caused the accident.

It is also necessary not to sign any documents after the accident without speaking with an attorney, as this information could be used as counteraction in the court of law.
