What to do if you are in an automobile accident:

  • Check to see if you or any other occupants of your vehicle are in need of medical attention. If so, call 911 immediately.
  • Turn on your emergency flashers.
  • Make sure that it is safe to exit your vehicle.
  • If you can safely leave your vehicle, check to see if the occupants of the other vehicle(s) are in need of medical attention. If so, call 911.
  • Contact the proper law enforcement agency and report the crash.
  • While you are waiting on law enforcement, preserve as much evidence as possible:
    • Use a camera or smart phone to take photographs of the vehicles before they are moved!
    • Also photograph damage to vehicles and any other property damage caused by the collision.
    • Make sure that you photograph the license plates of all vehicles involved.
    • Write down the names and contact information of any witnesses, including the driver of the other vehicle(s).
  • Remain with your vehicle ONLY if it is safe to do so. Otherwise, find the closest safe place to wait for law enforcement.
  • Make sure that you have your driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance available for the officer working the crash scene.
  • Provide any information requested by law enforcement, but do not speak with other persons about the crash UNTIL after you have spoken with an experienced personal injury attorney.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible after the crash. Do so even if you believe that you are alright. Many injuries do not materialize until days after the accident.
