If you are involved in a car accident, it is essential that you remain at the scene and call 911 immediately. When the police arrive, cooperate with them and provide any required information. If possible, take pictures of the vehicles involved and note any details regarding the circumstances of the crash. If you or anyone else is injured, seek medical help right away. Sometimes, injuries may not show up right away, but can become painful in the coming days or weeks. See a doctor as soon as possible, regardless of when you first feel any discomfort or pain.

  • Stay at the scene of the accident
  • Call 911
  • Provide police the information they request
  • Take photos of the vehicles if possible
  • Document information surrounding the crash
  • If injured, seek immediate medical attention
