What to Do After a Car Accident
Call the police
This is a good idea, even if the accident is minor. The police will make sure everyone is OK and safely divert traffic around the accident scene. They will talk to everyone involved, including witnesses, and gather evidence. Their report will document important details about what happened.
Get medical attention
If an ambulance is called, let emergency medical personnel examine you, even if you don't think you're hurt. You may have injuries and not be aware of them. If an ambulance is not called, go to a doctor or the emergency room. It's important to make sure you are OK. If you are hurt, health-care workers can treat you and document your injuries. Be sure to go to any follow-up appointments.
