What to Do After an Accident

If you are part of an automobile accident, you need to stay calm and take action. While it is a scary moment, there are various steps you must take to keep yourself safe and protected.

Immediately after the collision, check on anyone else in the vehicle. If you can provide assistance to injured passengers, you should do so as soon as possible. Then, you need to call emergency services. At that point, it's important to move your vehicle out of the road. If you can drive your vehicle, simply move it to the shoulder or emergency lane. You should turn on your hazard lights and set up reflective signs to make sure that you're seen. Once the police arrive, you need to file a report. This information will be important once you start communicating with your insurance company. You should also exchange information with everyone involved to have all your bases covered.
