You Just Got into A Car Accident. What Should You Do?
Safety is important. Stop as close as you can to the crash site and turn off your car. If you are able, you want to make sure that everyone is safe. Check everyone in your car and anyone else involved in the collision. Are the vehicles in a safe place? Does anyone need immediate medical attention? Unless there is an urgent danger, do not move any injured people.
Call 911: As soon as you have completed your survey of the accident scene, call 911 and report the collision, location, and injuries as best you can. Wait for the police to arrive. Do not leave and insist that the other driver(s) remain at the scene.
Do not admit fault even if you think you’re wrong. The other person may be at fault according to the law. Do not discuss the accident with the other person. Focus on safety and getting help. Do not tell the police officer that you are uninjured; tell him/her that you will go to your doctor to determine if there are any injuries.
Do not accept any immediate payment. Sometimes the other person who is at fault will attempt to pay you off on the spot to keep the accident off the record. Do not go there. There are still too many variables to determine. For example, there may be hidden damage to you or your car Step Two: Cooperate with the Police
Cooperate with Police. The police are trained to handle all the details of an accident. Tell the officers how the accident happened. Fully describe the events that led up to the crash and those that followed. The police should document what you told them in the police report. Always read it at your first opportunity.
