The first step is to call the police and be sure a police report is written. This will legitimize the determination of which driver was at fault and caused the accident. The police report can be a crucial piece of evidence that can make or break your case when it comes time to settle. In addition to the police report, collect the evidence yourself. Remember: A picture is worth a thousand words. Use your phone to take photos of the scene, property damage, identifying photographs of the other driver, their license plate and any passengers in the vehicle at the time; a picture of the other driver’s insurance policy; drivers license and contact information; and a photograph of your injuries and theirs. This is also an important time to locate anybody who pulled over to help or witnessed the accident in any way. If you can, record them saying what they saw happen and be sure to get their contact information. It is incredibly important that you not mention fault or the accident in any way with anybody at the scene other than the police officer. Even getting out of the vehicle and saying “I’m sorry” can be important information that will later be used against you by the other driver’s insurance company.
Seeking immediate medical attention is also an important step. First, seeking immediate medical attention is necessary to assess the extent of your injuries. Second, immediate medical care, even if you don’t feel injured, can be useful to document your injuries so an appropriate treatment plan can be created.
