Protecting Your Interests After an Accident

If you're involved in a car accident, you must take immediate steps to protect your medical and legal interests, if at all possible. This includes contacting emergency medical personnel and the police directly after an injury accident.

You also need to exchange information with the other driver. This includes insurance and contact information. You need to document the accident scene yourself as best as you can. Documenting the scene includes taking videos or photos, including of your injuries. You also will want to obtain the names and contact information from any witnesses to the collision or its immediate aftermath. File a police report, even if the accident doesn't seem significant. Contact your insurance company or agent immediately.
