Get Information Before You Leave
Do not make the mistake of leaving the scene of the accident. Even if you are unharmed or your vehicle is not damaged, stay on the scene and wait for the police to arrive so you can file a report for insurance purposes. If anyone is severely injured, an ambulance should be dispatched when you call 911.
Never Admit Fault
Use discretion when speaking with anyone on the scene. Do not admit fault or apologize. Call our auto accident attorney at the soonest opportunity you get. Your attorney will advise you to speak with witnesses at the scene and take down their accounts of what they saw. Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of anyone you speak to.
Above all, be polite and cooperative with other drivers. Do not lose your temper or become irate.
