What to do after a car accident?


A. In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, it is common to feel dazed, confused, and even a bit frightened. You might be in pain, worried about your car, and wondering how your life will be affected. Yet the steps you take in the hours and days that follow can determine the compensation that you can obtain. If you are seriously injured, seek medical attention immediately. Otherwise, follow this brief guide:


  • Safety: Secure the scene and call 911.
  • Contact Details: Exchange information, including insurance, with the other driver, and get witness details if possible.
  • Written Records: Document everything, including all you can remember about traffic patterns and the actions of both yourself and the other party just before the accident occurred. Also note any weather considerations, malfunctioning traffic lights, or other contributing factors.
  • Photographs: Take photos of the scene, all damage from several angles, and both vehicles’ license plates.
  • Insurance Report: Contact your insurance company within 24 hours, and be prepared to give a detailed statement.
  • Legal Assistance: Call a lawyer to assess your case, help you negotiate with the insurance companies, and determine whether a lawsuit is the best course of action.
