1. If you have been in a car accident, do not take any steps until your health and safety has been made a priority. If you need medical attention, seek it. If you are parked on a busy road, DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE AND WANDER AROUND. Get out of the way of traffic and do not put yourself in danger of being struck by a vehicle on the road!
  2. Obtain the names of any witnesses to your car accident. Even in a seemingly straightforward situation, stories change. Get the names and contact information of as many witnesses as possible, including passengers in vehicles.
  3. Take photos, if you can. It is best if these can be taken before the vehicles are moved. If there are skid marks or debris on the roadway, it is helpful to photograph that as well.
  4. Call the police. Police will either attend the scene or ask you to report the matter at a local station. It is important that the accident is reported, either way.
  5. Report the accident to your own insurer.
  6. Do not speak to or provide a statement to the other vehicle’s insurer. You have no obligation to do so as part of your accident claim. That insurance company is adverse in interest to you!
  7. Call us. Robinson LLP can provide crucial information at an early stage.
