Dealing With the Aftermath of the Atlantic Avenue Accident

Despite their scrupulous creation and mapping for efficient travel, highways are among the most dangerous places on earth. Consequently, everyone must remain calm after a collision to effectively handle the situation.

In fact, on the AAA Foundation Web site, chief executive officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”

 The following are things we should remember if we are involved in an accident:

  • Before anything else, seek medical attention if you or someone with you has been hurt.
  • Get to a safe place to prevent further damage or injury.
  • Collect as much information as possible, including insurance and contact information for people involved in the accident and pictures/videos of vehicles involved. Also, do not forget to document faults and whatever can be used as evidence.
  • File a police report or incident report by calling 911.
