WHAT TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT

1. Check yourself - Evaluate yourself and your passengers for injuries. If there is an injury, call an ambulance right away.
2. Get Moving - If the accident is minor, move all cars out of the flow of traffic. If you cannot move your car, stand someplace safe until help arrives.
3. Exchange information - Get the other driver's name address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver's license number, and license plate number. If the driver is not the owner, get this information for the owner too.
4. Remain calm - Be polite, but don't apologize or say that the accident was your fault. Do not engage in any arguments with the other driver.
5. Take pictures - If you can, take photographs of all the cars involved. This protects you against fraudulent claims from the other driver(s).
6. File a report - Call the police and inform them of the accident. Even if officers do not come to the scene, filing a police report can speed up your insurance claim.
7. Stay put - Don't leave the scene of the accident before police arrive. Make sure you have all necessary information before you leave.
8. Call your insurance company - understand what your policy covers. Provide the details of the accident so you can be reimbursed quickly.
9. Visit your doctor - Some injuries may not be immediately apparent. Get checked out in case you have internal injuries or other issues.
