First thing, take care of yourself and others. Find out if anyone is hurt if anyone requires emergency assistance, dial 911.
Share insurance information with the other drivers, as well as names, addresses and phone numbers. Write down the other vehicle’s make, model and license number.
Call local law enforcement to the scene or go to the nearest station to complete a report. Try to obtain a copy or ask the officer for the report number.
CONSIDER THESE STEPS TO TAKE
AFTER AN ACCIDENT
If you’re travelling with a camera or camera phone, it’s a good idea to take pictures at the scene. Get shots of the vehicles involved, damage and license plates. This kind of documentation may help later with your claim.
Contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report your accident and any damages.
If you are considering hiring a lawyer, do not give a statement under oath. If you give a statement, make it conditional on the insurer providing you with a copy of your statement.
