What to Do After an Auto Accident

Being in any sort of car or truck accident is a very frightening experience, whether it is a fender bender or you sustain serious injuries. However, it is very important to collect as much information as possible from the scene of the accident so you have a record of what happened and you can preserve evidence.

Call the Police and an Ambulance

If the accident is serious and you are able, you need to call an ambulance to get medical attention for yourself and any other injured parties. The police, sheriff's department or state patrol must be informed of the accident if there are injuries or deaths or if the damage to property is more than $1,000. It is always a good idea to call the police, that way there is a legal record of the accident to submit to your insurance company. Do not leave the scene of the accident. You risk having your license suspended or driving privileges revoked if you do so.

Get the Other Driver's Insurance Information

If you are able, exchange personal contact information and insurance information with the other driver. You will need this information to file an insurance claim for yourself and for your vehicle.

If you are unable, ask someone to get it for you or get the other driver's information from the police report when you have recovered sufficiently from your injuries. A family member may be able to get this information for you if you are hospitalized.

Document the Scene

If you are able, take pictures of the accident scene, your car, the other car and your injuries to document what happened for your attorney.
