Auto accidents are stressful and in the hectic moments afterward, it can be challenging to remember what you must do.
After the accident, check for injuries and assess the damage. Call the police to make an accident report. If possible, avoid moving the vehicles until the police arrive. Do not admit fault and limit your discussion with the other party, other than exchanging information. Take photos of the accident scene and damage, documenting as much as possible. Report the accident to your insurance company. Seek appropriate medical care. Contact a personal injury lawyer to learn about recovery options.
