Dealing With Vehicle Crashes
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings. Yet, it is crucial that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision.
Here are some steps to take in the case of a vehicle crash:
Before anything else, seek medical attention if you have been hurt.
Then, get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
Also, collect as much information as possible: insurance and contact information of people involved in the accident and pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Do not forget to add documentation of fault, and whatever else that can be used for evidence.
Additionally, file a police report or incident report by calling 911.
