Here’s what you should do:

  • Remain at the scene of a car accident: Never drive away; stay the the scene of the accident — even if it’s a minor one — until it’s appropriate to do so.
  • Call the police to the scene of the accident: Though there might not be any serious injuries, it’s a good idea to call the police for reports to be filed. It’s vital that all information and details of the accident are relayed to the investigating officer. Ask for a report to be filed.Woman calling for help after a car accident
  • Gather information: Exchange information with all drivers involved in the accident (names, phone numbers, addresses, drivers’ license numbers and plate numbers, and basic insurance information). Talk to any witnesses, if any, and ask what he or she saw of the car accident. Take photos of the accident; having visual proof of what happened could be a valuable took for your case.
