After a car accident, you may be wondering what the best things are to do. Here is a list of a few of the important first steps to take after an accident.

  1. If physically able, document information while at the scene about the accident (i.e. make, model, color, license plate number of the vehicles involved)
  2. Call the police as soon as possible, so they can record the accident and investigate
  3. Get the names and contact information of any witnesses (this information can be given to the police when they arrive)
  4. Seek immediate medical attention. Some injuries are not noticeable right away, so it is important to be checked out by a medical professional to determine if you may need further treatments.
  5. Report the accident to your own insurance company
  6. Contact a car accident attorney

A car accident can cause significant interruptions to your life, including new financial worries resulting from medical expenses to vehicle repairs or replacement, just to name a few. Especially if you’re injured, you may be worried about how you will pay for your medical care, expenses, and lost wages if you can’t work for some time. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation from those who caused the accident.
