Dealing With a Vehicle Crash
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings. As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
So, here are some helpful tips on what to do when in a car 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, pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Do not forget to include documentation of fault, and whatever else that can be used for evidence.
Additionally, file a police report or incident report by calling 911.
