What should I do immediately after an accident?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What should I do immediately after an accidentEach year millions of drivers are going to be involved in a traffic accident, and this means that the chances that a driver is going to experience one of these collisions in their lifetime are extremely high.  This is why our Los Angeles car accident lawyer believes that it is imperative that every driver knows exactly what to do in the short time after the accident to keep themselves safe, their finances intact, and their driving record clean.

Safety is always the number one priority after an accident.  Whether it is getting off the road as quickly as possible or helping passengers in the other car, nothing should come before safety.   Once the driver is sure that no parties are seriously injured, it is important to never claim fault or liability.  Asking how the other parties are doing is fine, but drivers should never say they are sorry, that they made a mistake, or anything that could be interpreted as these two things.

Finally, it is time to gather as much information as possible.  This means collecting all information on the other driver including the basics of their insurance, contact information, license plate numbers, and vehicle information.  It is also time to start looking at any other information such as traffic signs and vehicle damage.
