What should I do if I’m in a car accident?

By John Singleton on June 7, 2013

Here are five important steps to remember:

  1. Exchange driver information including full name, address, telephone number, and insurance provider. (Ask to see the driver’s license and insurance card to help ensure you are getting accurate information.)
  2. Note the other car’s make and model, license plate number, and state.
  3. Write down the name, address, and telephone number of any witnesses.
  4. Take pictures of the wreck scene, surrounding area, and damages to both cars.
  5. Go to the hospital to get checked out. The adrenaline rush and shock of a wreck can mask injuries, sometimes for days.
