What Should You Do After a Car Wreck?


If you are involved in a car accident, you should first determine whether you or anyone else is injured. Next, call 911 for police and medical help. Even if there are no serious injuries, a police report can come in handy when you are making a claim for property damage to your vehicle.

Collect as much information about the accident as you can. Use your cell phone to take photos of the accident scene. Exchange insurance information with the other driver. Get the name, address, and phone number of everyone who was involved in the accident, as well as any witnesses. Stay at the accident scene until police and medical help arrive.

Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect that you have been injured.

Notify your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible, even if you believe the other driver is at fault.
