A Few Steps You Should Take After an Accident

  • Seek medical attention, if you are injured. A doctor will note and record your injuries, providing documentation for your case.
  • Speak with an attorney. You may not need a lawyer, but the only way to find out is to ask. Most injury lawyers do not charge for consultations, so you have nothing to lose — but you may have much to gain.
  • Do not admit fault. While you should never admit fault for the accident, you are obligated to describe to the police and your insurance company what happened during the accident
  • Do not speak to the other driver's insurance company. The insurance company representing the other driver may ask you for a recorded statement. Everything you say will be used against you.
  • Cooperate with your insurance company. You should act in good faith when dealing with your insurance company. Answer their questions — just make sure you do not admit fault.
  • Cooperate with the police. If you cooperate early in the process, it will reflect well on you later. Again, just make sure you do not admit fault.
  • Take names: If you can, get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses at the scene.
