After an accident, it is important that you:
Check if you have any injuries. Even the most minor accidents can cause serious injuries. If another individual
was hurt, call an ambulance. It is also important that you take note of
any pain or symptoms you are experiencing and report it to a medical professional.
Stay at the scene and contact the police. Do not leave the scene. Wait for the police to arrive and provide them
with as much information as possible so you have a thorough police report.
Request a copy of that report later and use it to file your claim.
Get information. You should also try to gather as much information as you can about the
other driver, including their name, address, contact information, insurance
information, and more. Be sure to request contact information from any
witnesses as well.
Do not admit fault. Never admit to fault when you are speaking to the driver, police, or insurance
adjusters. This can be used against you in the future when you are filing a claim.
Seek medical attention. See a doctor immediately whether or not you believe you have been injured.
Some injuries do not appear until much later in the day, so monitor your
symptoms and report it to your doctor immediately.
