The first thing to do when you are in an accident is to make sure that everyone involved is safe and not injured. If there are injuries, call for emergency services immediately. If everyone is safe, move the vehicles involved to a safe location if possible, but do not leave the scene of the accident. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other drivers involved and obtain the name and badge number of any law enforcement officers who may have responded to the accident. Take photos of the vehicles involved and the scene of the accident for later reference. It’s also important to report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible, even if you are not at fault. Remember to stay calm and avoid admitting fault or apologizing at the scene of the accident.
