If you are injured, seek medical attention. You should also report the crash to law enforcement so that they can obtain the other driver’s information including necessary insurance details. Following that make sure you keep all important documents including photographs of the car you were occupying and the car that hit you. If there are any witnesses to the accident, make sure you get their contact information.
If you are injured, seek medical attention. Depending on the severity of the symptoms you may need to go to the hospital. If the symptoms have not gone away after the crash, you may need to consult an medical specialist that treats people injured in auto accidents.
Alert law enforcement right away if you decide to make an insurance claim. The insurance company will be aided by the law enforcement’s report. If the damage is minor, you can elect to fix it on your own or by agreement between the parties but you are likely responsible for the outcome.
The same rules apply for minor accidents. In fact, evidence collection may be even more important for minor collisions since law enforcement resources are typically diverted to the most severe calls. Make a report, save photos of the scene, and gather witness information.
If you are injured, seek medical attention. Call law enforcement so can investigate. If you are rear ended and were lawfully obeying traffic rules, the person that hit you is presumed at fault. They will likely be issued a citation by the officer. Keep important documents and photos of the cars involved in the crash. Collect witness information.
