What To Do Immediately After a Car Accident

First and foremost, make sure that you and your passengers are okay. If any of you are injured, immediately seek medical attention and get evaluated by doctors. If you are able, call 911 so the police can come to the scene and investigate the accident. They can also send an ambulance to take care of any injuries.

If you are able, you will also want to exchange insurance information with the other driver. It is also helpful to take pictures of the damage to the vehicles that were involved and identify any witnesses to the accident. Sometimes these people are listed on the accident report, but not always. If you are able to speak with any witnesses, get their names and phone numbers so your attorney can follow up with them later.

Once you have time, call an experienced personal injury attorney who will begin investigating the accident, determine who was at fault, find all available insurance coverage, and help you get the medical treatment you need.
