What to do after an accident
The moments following an accident can be chaotic. First off, make sure you’re in a safe place. If your vehicle is on fire, teetering near a drop off, or exposed to passing traffic, you may need to move to a safer place. Assuming you are safe, examine yourself for injuries. If you think you may have suffered a spine or neck injury, it’s generally best to move as little as possible until EMTs arrive. If you’re relatively unhurt, you should exchange insurance information with other drivers and eye-witnesses. Use your phone to take pictures of the crash scene too, as you never know what might end up being crucial evidence. Make a statement to police if you must, but be careful to not admit fault, even if you think you may be partially to blame for the accident.
