What to Do After a Car Accident

It is impossible to predict car accidents, but you can prepare for them. A checklist in your glove compartment can help you remain calm after an accident. Using it can help you figure out what to do, what to avoid, and how to protect your rights. To help you get started, here are some 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. Call the police unless the collision was minimal, no one was hurt, and no property was damaged. The police can investigate by speaking with prospective witnesses and gathering 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 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 an experienced California car accident lawyer.
