What To Do If You’ve Been Involved in a Crash
Crashes are never expected and can leave those involved confused and at a loss of what to do next. Though stressful, there are a few steps you can take, if able, that can help protect your safety, your health, and your rights.
- Check yourself and those with you for injuries. Adrenaline can mask pain and injuries, so take a moment to evaluate yourself. If you or anyone else has sustained an injury, call 911 for an ambulance.
- Provide information to the police. If a law enforcement officer responds to the scene of the crash, give them as many facts about the crash as possible. The more detailed your police report, the better.
- Exchange information with the other driver. This includes name, contact information, and insurance information. If the other driver does not have proof of insurance, call the police.
- Take pictures of the scene, but only if it is safe to do so. You should try to document as much as possible with your pictures. The crash, your vehicle, the other party’s vehicle, your injuries, relevant road signs or traffic signals, and environmental conditions.
- Speak with witnesses and get their information. Witnesses can help corroborate your recollection of how the crash occurred as well as provide additional details.
- Focus on your health. If you were taken to the hospital via ambulance, be sure to attend any and all follow-up appointments. Even if you are feeling better, that does not mean your injuries have healed. If you did not go to the hospital immediately after your crash, consider a check-up just to make sure you are not missing any potential injuries that may become symptomatic later.
