What to Do After a Car Accident
Should you ever be involved in a serious car crash, you should do a few things: (1) call 911; (2) make sure you and your passengers are out of harm's way; (3) exchange insurance information with the other driver; (4) take photographs of the scene; (5) get contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the crash; (6) get a police report number from the responding officer.
Making sure first responders show up on the scene is vital if you were hurt. If you struck your head, do not simply shrug it off as it could develop into a worsening concussion. Seek medical attention first.
In addition to getting the police report number, try to get the names and phone numbers of anyone who may have witnessed the crash. You will find that there are times when police do not contain the names of all the witnesses who had important information concerning the crash.
