Car accidents are jarring. They can shake you to your core, leaving you unaware of how to respond or react. Despite their stressful, shocking, and frightening nature, it is possible to prepare accordingly so as to ensure you follow protocol and keep everyone as safe as possible. This is why it is essential you collect your thoughts and act accordingly, especially you if have any passengers in the car.
The following is our step-by-step car crash guide:
- Take a look at yourself, anyone in your car, and anyone in the other vehicle to see if there is a need for immediate medical attention. Ask if everyone is okay. If anyone needs medical attention, call 911 immediately. If not, move to the next step.
- Take a moment to see what kind of damage has been done to your car and others involved. Take photographs.
- If there are any witnesses immediately flag them down and get their name and number.
- Call the police to come to the scene in order to file the incident report.
- Make sure the police look at the damage and hear your statement (and any witness statements). If need be, reconstruct the accident so that the at-fault party is properly cited on the incident report. If any issues arise, be sure to document as much as you can, including pictures of the crash, the property damage, the road, etc.
- Follow up with a doctor regarding any injuries as soon as possible. Typically, soreness sets in over the next few days as the adrenaline of the crash fades away.
