OK, so unfortunately you’ve been involved in an auto accident. Now what?
If your vehicle is creating a safety hazard, or if you’re concerned for yourself or others, pull off the road or move to a safer place. Turn hazard lights on.
If anyone is injured, call an ambulance and see that the person receives proper medical attention. Do not administer any medical treatment or first aid unless you are qualified to do so.
– to anyone except police officials. Do not make any false settlements under any circumstances.
– while you are at the scene of the accident and the details are fresh in your memory.
Record the name(s), address(s), phone number(s), make of vehicle(s), and license number(s) of the other driver(s) and all passengers.
IMPORTANT! Collect the names, addresses and phone numbers of any and all witnesses.
