What Should I Do When I’m In A Car Accident?
Getting into a car accident can be quite stressful and nerve-wracking for anyone, no matter how severe the accident may be. Being prepared, however, can ensure that not only significant details are reported accurately but you and any passengers are compensated fairly for your injuries.
Step 1 – Call 911
It’s important to seek medical attention for you and everyone involved first and foremost. Calling emergency services will also ensure that police arrive quickly to direct traffic away from the crash scene to keep you, everyone else involved in the accident, as well as bystanders safe.
Step 2 – Take Pictures
Use the camera available on your smartphone to take photos of vehicles involved, damages to both vehicles, insurance cards and license plates. Many of these photos are integral for your case.
Step 3 – Get Witnesses
First-hand accounts are important for your case to help determine who was at fault. At times, it may not be obvious for the officer on duty, so flagging down 3rd. party witnesses can help accurately document the accident.
