WHAT STEPS TO TAKE IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT
If you are involved in a car accident or a collision of any type, the first thing to do is call emergency response to request both medical and police assistance. Never leave the scene and it is best if you do not move your vehicle. If there are any disputes over the way the collision occurred placement of the vehicles will often times assist the officer and others regarding reconstruction of the accident to determine exactly what happened. If you have a camera in your car, take pictures of damage to the vehicles and the position of vehicles along with the scene.
If you can, attempt to locate any people that may have witnessed the accident. Get their names, addresses and telephone numbers. As well exchange information with the other driver such as insurance and driver’s license information. Be sure you know which police department investigates the collision so you know where to request the police report.
In almost every collision, there is some type of trauma caused to the body. If an ambulance is offered, it is always best to go to the emergency room to be examined to ensure that are not any hidden internal injuries. Many times because of the shock or adrenaline will mask your symptoms and later appear. Emergency room doctors will also give you advice regarding follow-up care
