If You're in an Accident, This is What You Should Do

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it's important that you take the right steps moving forward. You want to make sure that everyone involved is safe. You also need to complete a few steps to ensure that you are protected, whether you were at fault for the accident or not.

First, you need to find out if anyone is injured in your car or the other vehicle. If there are injuries, you should contact law enforcement. You'll want a police report to submit to your insurance company anyway, so it's a good idea to request their presence immediately.

You'll eventually need to swap insurance information, contact information and license plate numbers with the other vehicle owner. This information will come in handy if your insurance company decides that a lawsuit is a good idea.
