Steps to Take After a Motor Vehicle Accident

  1. Make sure everyone is safe
  2. Stay at the scene
  3. Contact emergency services
  4. Never apologize or take the blame
  5. Exchange insurance info
  6. Ask for a copy of the police report
  7. Take pictures
  8. Get names and phone numbers of witnesses
  9. Contact an attorney to represent you

After a motor vehicle accident, the first thing you need to do is to ensure that all drivers and passengers are safe. DO NOT leave the scene. If medical attention is needed, immediately contact emergency services.

Make sure to retain the information of the drivers and passengers involved, but do not give away too much information and never apologize to or blame the other driver. When police arrive, speak with them and ask to receive a copy of the police report. If you can, take pictures of the scene and get witness names and phones numbers.

If you think you may have been at fault for the accident and the other person is injured, call us before you speak to the police. Before you contact either your insurance company or the insurance company of the other driver, you need to retain an attorney to help protect you from incrimination. An attorney can make all the difference in your case and can help you receive the financial compensation that you deserve from the faulty driver.
