If you are in an accident, the first thing you should do is to get medical attention for anyone who is injured. You should not leave the scene of the accident because you could have your license suspended. Try to remain calm. Do not move an injured person unless there is a fire danger. Try to avoid blocking traffic, but do not move if you have an injury.
You must exchange information with the other parties involved in the accident, including cyclists, pedestrians and passengers. You should also ask witnesses for their information, just in case you need their accounts later. You should exchange:
- Name, address and phone number
- Driver license number
- License plate number of all vehicles involved in the accident
- Auto insurance of all motorists involved
If possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident. Get as much detail as possible, surrounding conditions, the road’s surface, construction, etc., to be able to recreate the scene later in case there is a dispute and you have to proceed to litigation. You may want to speak to an attorney about any settlement offer to ensure you get the best possible outcome for your situation. Motor vehicle accident injuries are stressful enough without having to negotiate with the insurance company.
