What Do I Do After a Car Accident?
First, call the police and/or seek help for anyone injured in the accident. Leaving the scene of an accident could expose you to possible criminal prosecution. Information needs to be exchanged with the other driver and you should wait for the police to arrive to make a formal accident report. Get the reporting officer’s name, along with the other driver’s identification. Also get any passenger or witness information. If possible take photos of the damages to the vehicle and to any injuries to your body. Getting as much information as possible will help you obtain the maximum financial compensation for your injuries later. If you are injured, go to the emergency room, and detail all injuries to the physicians and staff. Sometimes injuries from auto accidents, like concussions, neck or back injuries may not become noticeable until days later.
