Critical Steps to Take Following a Car Crash

With millions of car accidents occurring in the United States every year, too many people find themselves harmed. You need to be sure to protect yourself and your interests during this time.

Be sure to follow the following steps after an accident to protect your rights!

  • Stop and stay at the scene of the accident.
  • Check on all passengers in the vehicle and assess the situation.
  • Call police and report the car crash.
  • Develop an accurate record of the accident- take pictures!
  • Get the information of any witnesses to the crash.
  • If the accident happened with another vehicle, exchange information.
  • Retain and keep all information about the accident.
