What you do during and after your auto accident can profoundly affect your physical and financial recovery. We recommend you take the following steps at each stage of your auto accident and recovery.

What to do at the crash scene

Before anything else, make sure you and your loved ones are not in imminent danger of further injury from other motorists. Then, request medical assistance and the aid of a police officer. If possible, get the following information:

  • The full name of everyone directly involved
  • Their license numbers and insurance information
  • The full names and contact information of witnesses
  • The names and contact information of the post-accident professionals involved (police, paramedics, rescuers, insurance adjusters)
  • If those involved were not the registered owners, get the vehicle’s registered owner’s information

Jot down the following details:

  • Location information (time of day, weather conditions, physical location, skid marks)
  • If anyone else involved reported an injury
  • If anyone stated that they were not hurt or expressed guilt in the accident
  • If anyone in the accident states that they plan to file a NJ auto accident lawsuit
