What Should You Do in Case of a Car Accident?

Since car accidents are unexpected, it can be confusing to know exactly what to do after being involved in one. 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. 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, you need to call the police department and request the accident report.
  2. Take pictures of all parties involved, including their driver’s licenses and insurance cards.
  3. Take pictures of all vehicles involved, including their license plates, any visible damages, and points of rest of the automobiles.
  4. Take pictures of street names, traffic lights, and signs.
  5. Take pictures of all skid marks.
  6. Take pictures of witnesses and obtain their phone numbers and addresses.
