Actions To Take After An Accident

Being involved in an accident can be overwhelming and more so if you are not prepared. But having a mental checklist of what to do after an auto accident can help.

Should an accident occur, it is crucial that you take the following steps:

  • Check yourself or passengers for any urgent injuries.
  • Call the police and seek other emergency services, if needed.
  • Document the incident with a police report.
  • Talk to witnesses at the scene, if possible, and obtain their contact information.
  • Preserve evidence by taking notes and photographs.
  • Exchange insurance information with the other party.
  • Seek medical attention; not all injuries are immediately evident.
  • Call our law firm for trusted legal guidance.

While we’ve covered some of the main information, this may not apply to everyone. We encourage you to tailor the list as needed to your specific circumstances.
