  2. 2. Most of the people are not sure what to do after a car accident. Panic? Breathe? Check yourself and passengers? Follow these steps on what to do in the event of a car accident:
  3. 3. Call 911 if there are any signs of injury or significant damage to you, your passengers and your vehicle. Check if the driver and passengers in the other vehicle are okay. Dont admit fault or say "I'm sorry" during your conversation, as it could be used against you in future proceedings. If its only a minor accident and no one has been hurt, make sure to move your car out of the way of oncoming traffic, where you can then exchange insurance information with the other driver. Request a copy of the police report, as well as the officer's name, badge number, and phone number.
  4. 4. Make note of the other car's make, model, year and license plate number. Get the drivers full name, address, phone number, license number, insurance carrier and policy number. Take photos of your damaged vehicle, accident location and the people involved with the accident. Also, file a report with your insurance company with the help of a claim lawyer as soon as possible. If you have suffered a serious injury persisting after the accident, contact an experienced attorney.
