If you have been involved in an accident, here is what you should do: (1) Remain at the scene and move to a safe place. (2) Call the police and request an ambulance if you or someone else is badly injured. It is a good idea to file a police report, as this will play an important role in your case. (3) Collect information from other parties involved, including name, phone number, address, insurance information, license plate number, license number, and vehicle information. You can take a picture of the other party’s license and insurance card. If there were any witnesses, collect their contact information. (4) Document the scene by taking photos of the damaged vehicles, the accident scene, and your injuries. (5) Contact an auto accident lawyer as soon as possible so we can protect your legal rights.
