Car Accident? Follow These Steps

When you have been involved in an auto accident, it may be unclear what you next steps are, or you may lose track of the things that you need to do. It is important to be able to keep a clear mind in this situation, in order to avoid missing any important steps. By making sure that you have everything taken care of, you also increase your chances of gaining the full and fair compensation that you deserve in your accident case, since all your bases will be covered.

STOP

With any accident, whether it is minor or not, it is essential to stop. Pull to the side of the roadway if possible, and make sure you stand clear of potential harm.

PROTECT THE SCENE

Set up a barrier if possible, or establish a way to warn or redirect other drivers away from the accident scene. Flares, flashlights, or simply leaving your hazard lights on if functional are all ways of accomplishing this.

CALL THE POLICE

This may seem like a no-brainer, but more often than not, if other factors play into the accident, one of the parties may not want the police to be involved. Regardless, it is essential to have a police report of the incident if you are to have a successful case.

MAKE AN ACCURATE RECORD

For times like these, keeping a notepad in your car may be helpful. Otherwise, take notes on your phone if not damaged or lost in the crash. Note things such as the timing of the crash and any other details you remember at the time, regardless of if you believe it will be relevant or not.

TAKE PICTURES

Taking pictures of the accident scene, and both (if not more) vehicles involved will help verify your notes of the accident and can play an important role in winning your case.

EXCHANGE INFORMATION

Perhaps one of the most known steps, it is essential to exchange information with the other driver(s) involved. This includes insurance information as well as basic contact information.

REPORT THE ACCIDENT

In addition to filing a police report (or simply calling the police to the scene), you must report the accident to your insurance company. Most insurance policies require immediate reporting of any incidents if there is any chance of compensation or coverage.

SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION

If you believe that you may be injured in any way, seek medical attention immediately. If you deny medical treatment on scene, there is a chance it may impede your likeliness of having a case later on.

KEEP A FILE

Be sure to keep all of your photos, notes, and information collected on the scene of the accident, as well as records of any communication with the other driver(s), your insurance company, and more. The more information you have available for your attorney, the stronger your case will be.
