Steps to Take At the Scene of the Accident

We find that upon getting into any kind of auto collision, patients are often so unsettled that they forget what to do. Here are a few simple tips to follow after the accident:
1. Move to a safe area (if you can)
2. Stop your vehicle and get out
3. Check on others involved
4. Call the police or file an accident report through the DMV
5. Gather info including:

  • Driver and passenger names
  • License plate numbers
  • Insurance info
  • Makes and models of all vehicles involved
  • Contact info for any eyewitnesses
  • Location of the accident
  • Name and badge number of responding police officers

6. Document the scene (use your cell phone to take pictures)
