What to do in case of a car accident

car accident

  • Safety is your top priority. Your first priority is to maintain the safety of everyone involved in the accident and to take actions to prevent more smash-ups and injuries. 

  • If the accident is minor and the cars are still functioning, move them off or to the side of the road.

  • Check for injuries. Ask everyone who was in the car with you if they’re okay. Then check on the driver and passengers of the other car. Call  for an ambulance if needed.
  •  Call the police, even if the accident is minor.

  • Do not sign any document unless it's for the police or your insurance agent.

  • Be polite, but don't tell anyone the accident was your fault, even if you think it was.

  • State only the facts, and limit your discussion of the accident to the police and your insurance agent.

  • If possible, don't leave the accident scene before the police and other drivers do.
