Steps To Take After A Car Accident

The steps you take after your accident can be vital in building a strong case and helping you receive the compensation to which you are entitled. If you suffered injuries in an accident that was caused by another person's negligence, you should:

  • Take pictures of the accident and the scene of the crash

  • Exchange information with the other driver, but stay at the scene until the police arrive

  • Do not admit fault — this includes when you're talking with the other driver, your insurance company and the police officers

  • Get medical attention if you're hurt, and document your injuries

  • Get contact information for anyone who saw the accident

  • Contact an experienced attorney to make sure you understand your rights
