#1 Safety If you find yourself involved in a car accident your safety is most important. First and foremost, you need to get to a safe location. No one wants you or anyone else in any type of danger or at risk injury.

#2 Call the Police Make sure to call the police and make a police report. You will want to have documented what happened, what damages there are, what injuries there are if any, and any other information about the accident, this is your only chance to do so.

#3 Take Photos & Video You will want to take photos of your vehicle, their vehicle, your injuries, and photos of the accident scene. If at all possible, take a video as well. All of these things can be used as evidence in any future case you may have. At the time of the accident is the best time to obtain this evidence.

#4 Get The Other Driver’s Information If you find that you are involved in an automobile accident you will want to get the other driver’s information, Be sure to get their name, phone number, and insurance information. You will need this information to make a claim with the insurance company.

#5 Get Treatment for Any Injuries Make sure that you get medical treatment if you are involved in a car accident for any pain, headaches, bleeding, or any other injuries of that nature. Go to the emergency room, urgent care, or doctor’s office, but do not wait to seek treatment. Get medical treatment asap if you are injured from the accident and follow all recommendations given by the doctors. In the following weeks, keep track of your symptoms and seek treatment for any issues that may arise and continue with any necessary follow up treatment.

#6 Call an Attorney ASAP If you are involved in an accident resulting in personal injury contact an attorney asap. Having an attorney that specializes in personal injury law is important.
