Things To Do In Case Of An Auto Accident

  1. Most states require that you stop and do not leave the scene of the accident.
  2. Contact the state or city police.
  3. If possible and if safe to do so, do not move your car. Protect the accident scene until investigating officers arrive.
  4. Take safety precautions: Put flags, flares or other warning devices to alert oncoming motorists.
  5. If someone is injured, you are required to make sure that they receive proper medical attention.
  6. Obtain name, address, phone number, driver’s license number and insurance company of the other driver. Make sure the license is current and that the license plate matches the registration.
  7. Obtain name of owner, if not driver, including address, phone number, insurance company and policy number.
  8. If able, please get names of passengers, including their addresses and phone numbers.
  9. If able, please get names of any witnesses and write them down. Not doing so is one of the most common mistakes made by motorists.
  10. Take pictures of your car and the other car involved. Also take pictures of the scene of the accident.
  11. If you are injured, don’t refuse medical attention at the scene. Please be aware that you may not feel the effects of an accident until later on because the body numbs.
  12. If your vehicle is towed, get the information of where it is located.
  13. Contact your insurance agent or broker and inform him that you had an accident. Get the name of the person with whom you speak.
  14. Do not give a statement or sign any forms until you speak to CORRADINO LAW OFFICES at 1-877-574-1200.
  15. Beware of insurance companies who contact you and tell you that you don’t need a lawyer; it’s against the law in many states. Statistics show that claimants who are represented receive two to three times more than unrepresented claimants.
