Suppose you were involved in a car accident. You should start by checking yourself for
injuries. If you are injured, call 911 or ask someone to do it for you. Look out for the
other passengers in your vehicle. If possible and safe to drive, move your car to the
side of the road or a sidewalk. Otherwise, leave the car there and get yourself and your
passengers to safety.
Call the police, no matter how minor the accident may seem. The law enforcement officer
will fill out a police report after documenting the accident scene. If the police didn't
show up at the scene of your accident, it is advised to go to the nearest police station
and fill out a report yourself. The report will serve as evidence in your personal
injury claim. If there are any witnesses to your car accident, try to get their names
and contact information.
After you ensure that you and your passengers are okay, gather as much evidence as
possible. Start taking photos of your car, the other cars, your injuries, road signs, or
whatever may serve as significant evidence. Get the other driver's full name, contact
information, insurance company, policy number, license plate number, and model and make
Call your insurance company to report your claim while you are at the accident scene.
Then contact a personal injury attorney to help you get the compensation you fully
deserve. At Isaacson, Schiowitz & Korson, LLP, our professional personal injury
