As experienced personal injury lawyers we are often asked what the top 3 things you should do after you’ve been involved in an accident. We’ve come up with our list of top 3 things to do after an accident:
- Call an ambulance so that everyone involved in the accident can be checked and taken to the hospital if needed – see your doctor as soon as possible, if you are not taken to the hospital.
- Exchange information with the other drivers such as driver’s licenses, and also take photos of the vehicles and the location around the scene of the accident – if the other drivers don’t cooperate, then call the police for assistance.
- Check to see if there are any witnesses and get their contact information – if anyone has a dash cam, ask for the camera footage of the accident.
