Steps You Can Take After A Car Accident

Every car accident is different, but in general, it is important to take these steps after an auto accident:

  • Get the medical care you need, right away. This is essential. Your health and safety are paramount.
  • Call the police. Local law enforcement or state troopers can file appropriate reports and provide security.
  • Get information from all other drivers. Get witnesses to the accident if possible.
  • Photograph the damage. Photograph your injuries as soon as you can. Using your phone is an acceptable way to do this.
  • Call your insurance company. Report the accident to your car insurance provider.
  • Do not talk to another driver's insurance company. Do not give a recorded statement to another insurer. Especially when a driver has been negligent, his or her insurer will be looking for evidence against injured parties.
  • Consider hiring a reputable, proven attorney. Do your research so you can find an attorney you trust.
