What Should You Do After A Vallejo Car Accident?

First, you should check on all passengers, drivers, and pedestrians involved. If they need medical help, call for an ambulance immediately. Make sure that you don’t move anyone who is unconscious or reports back or neck pain unless their life is in imminent danger, for example, from a fire or oncoming traffic. Since car accidents are unexpected, you also need to do the following:

  1. Call the police to report any deaths, injuries, or substantial property damage. Get the names and badge numbers of the officers who are at the scene of the accident. Later, call the police department and request an accident report.
  2. Take pictures of all parties involved, including their driver’s licenses, insurance cards, and respective vehicles. Remember to capture any visible damages, skid marks, and the vehicles’ points of rest.
  3. Take note of the street names, traffic lights, and signs.
  4. Talk to the witnesses and obtain their phone numbers and addresses.
