What to Do After a Car Accident

It is impossible to predict car accidents, but we can prepare for them. You can stay calm after an accident if you keep a checklist in your glove compartment. It can guide you on what to do, what to avoid, and how to protect your rights. You can follow these guidelines:

  • Stay calm and remain at the scene to ensure safety. You should check yourself for injuries before helping others.
  • Get to a safe location and wait for the authorities. Pull over any vehicles that cannot move to the side of the road. To prevent further collisions, activate your hazard lights.
  • Call 911 to report your collision. Unless the accident was minor, there were no injuries, and there was no property damage, call the police. The police can investigate the situation by questioning potential witnesses and collecting evidence.
  • Exchange information with all parties involved. Document everything, from your injuries to the weather, road conditions, and the vehicle that hit you.
  • Do not admit fault under any circumstances, even to the police. Give the police officer an honest account of events.
  • Seek medical attention. See a specialist or your primary care physician as soon as possible. Receiving immediate medical care can lessen the severity of injuries.
  • Report it to your insurance company. Insurance companies in California have different deadlines for reporting accidents.
  • Contact insurance adjusters. You can talk to a claims adjuster, but only share the necessary information with them. You should consult a lawyer before accepting a settlement offer or providing a recorded statement to an insurance company.
  • Create a file. Gather and file all paperwork related to the incident, such as the police report, medical bills, details about the other driver, and plans for treating any injuries, in a case file.
  • Seek immediate legal counsel from a trustworthy California accident lawyer.
