What to Do After a Car Accident

Car accident victims have much to consider, including the severity of their injuries, how the crash might impact them financially, how they’ll get their vehicle repaired, and more. Learning more about what you should do after an accident before you’re ever involved in a crash can help you protect your rights as a victim and limit the long-term personal inconvenience and expense.

If you’ve been in a car accident:

  1. Seek medical treatment if you are obviously or even possibly injured. Let the care team know that you were injured in an automobile accident.
  2. Notify the police of the accident and provide any documentation they request, including registration, proof of insurance, and your driver’s license. Share only the facts.
  3. Ask the other driver for the insurance information and contact information. Even if the police have this information, ensure you have a copy as well.
  4. Notify your insurance company.
  5. Visit with a personal injury attorney as early as possible to make sure the at-fault driver’s insurance company compensates you appropriately for your losses, including vehicle damage, medical bills, personal suffering, time away from work, and more.
