What to do AFTER an accident

What to do AFTER a car accident6 Important things to do after an accident:

Before we begin, you should always have a cell phone, a pen and paper (for taking notes), and a disposable camera (to take photos) in your car at all times.


  1. Photograph and Document the Accident.

    If possible, use your camera to document the damage to all vehicles involved in the accident. Write down the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all witnesses. Most especially, write down the names, addresses, telephone numbers, DRIVER’S LICENSE numbers and car license plates of those involved in the accident. MAKE SURE you see the other driver’s auto insurance certificate. Write down his or her auto insurance policy number, and the name of the company that insures them.

  2. Seek Medical Attention

    If you are in pain or are having any physical difficulties whatsoever at the time of the accident or at any time thereafter, go to a hospital emergency room or see a doctor immediately.

  3. Do not discuss

    your case or accident with anyone other than your insurance representative and attorney.

  4. Do not give a statement to anyone from an insurance company other than your own.

    If someone from an insurance company contacts you, it is essential that you obtain the name of the person and their telephone number. Tell the person that your attorney will call them and stop talking to them immediately.

  5. Assemble any documents

    relating to your case, such as medical bills, doctor’s instructions, prescriptions, etc.
