What to do after your car accident
The first thing you should do following a car accident is get yourself and anyone else involved to safety and seek medical attention, even if you don’t notice symptoms right away. If possible, use road flares, hazard lights and emergency triangles to keep other cars out of the scene of the accident. Take pictures of the vehicles and any road signs. Report the wreck to police. You should exchange insurance and other identifying information with any other drivers involved in the accident. Be sure never to apologize or take responsibility for an accident, as this may affect your rights. Do not speak to an insurance adjustor until you have consulted with an attorney experienced in handling personal injury cases.
