What Should You Do After a Head-On Collision Car Accident?

Car accidents cannot be predicted, but you can be ready for one. Keeping a car accident checklist after a collision will help you stay calm and organized. It can advise you on what to do and what not to do, and how to protect your rights. You are not alone after a collision. Follow these steps:

  • Make sure everyone is safe and on the scene. Check yourself for injuries before checking with others, and stay calm.
  • If you can, move disabled vehicles to the side of the road. Make sure your emergency flashers are on to avoid further collisions. Find a secure location and wait for the police.

  • Talk to the other driver(s) involved in the collision and exchange names, numbers, and insurance information. Also, take pictures of the cars, license plates, and other relevant information.

  • Visit the hospital or your primary care physician as soon as possible.
  • California insurers have reporting deadlines. Call as soon as possible and report the crash according to the agent’s directions.
