STOP AND CALL THE POLICE OR 911:
Stop! Never leave the scene of the accident. Make sure you call 911 if it is a big crash. Even if it is a minor accident, you still need to call the police immediately. When speaking to the investigating police officer, do not admit fault and always get a copy of the police report or accident case number.
EXCHANGE DRIVER INFORMATION:
Always get the insurance information and driver’s license information from the other driver. The police officer will get that information as well, but it is a good idea to get this information yourself before the police arrive.
Photographs of the damage to both vehicles are always helpful, as are photos of the accident scene. There may be other photographs or a short video that can also be helpful to your case. However, do not allow your taking photographs to interfere with or annoy the investigating police officer.
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION:
If the injuries are serious an ambulance will be sent to the accident scene to take you to the hospital. If the injuries are less serious you may want to wait until after speaking with the police officer investigating the accident to seek medical attention. Sometimes the ambulance bill and the high cost of an emergency room visit may be a financial concern. Yet you should always seek medical attention within the first 24 hours after the crash even it is at a ‘walk-in clinic’ or ‘urgent care center’, which are usually much less expensive that the hospital emergency room.
