What To Do After an Accident Occurred

Make sure that the police arrive at the scene of the collision and file a report. Be honest when describing what you witnessed and experienced at the accident scene. If you are unfamiliar with something, use your words carefully and avoid making assumptions. Anxiety and shock can cause victims to apologize profusely after an accident, even when they aren’t to blame. Depending on the insurer, this act of kindness can be construed as proof that you admitted fault and avoided paying out.
