2. Prioritize Safety
Keep your hazard lights on to warn other drivers to slow down. If there's a passenger with severe injuries, don't move them unless they are in immediate danger. If your vehicle is drivable, move it to the side of the road so it won't block the traffic. If not, leave it where it is.
3. Call the Police
The police can help document the accident. So whether you have a major or minor car crash, call the police.
4. Exchange Information
Exchange information with the other driver involved. Get their full name, contact information, driver's license, license plate number, insurance company, and policy number. Avoid discussing details about the accident and never apologize or make accusations.
5. Document the Accident
Take photos or videos of the scene and your injuries. If there are witnesses, get their information as well.
6. Seek Medical Attention
Even if you think you are not injured, it's best to get medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries can take days, weeks, or months before showing any symptoms. So prevent your injuries from worsening by getting immediate medical care.
