Be prepared to act in the wake of a car accident

If you become involved in a car accident, you are likely to have any number of things racing through your head. Is everyone OK? How badly damaged is the car? Who was at fault? Accidents usually result in various costs, along with a lot of stress and trauma. Often they also bring about serious injuries or even death.

It's a lot to take in, especially if you have been badly hurt. One thing you might wish to do is to determine liability and make a claim against the person responsible, as we discussed previously. However, in order to do so, you will need certain information. There are also vital steps you must take, both for your own safety and to protect your ability to make a claim.

First and foremost, you must remain at the scene. Leaving could result in the loss of your driver's license. You should call 911 to report any and all injuries and be prepared to assist others involved in the accident in whatever way you can. It is also important to inform the highway patrol, the local police or the sheriff.

As is explained on the DMV website, you will also need to exchange details with witnesses and others involved in the accident. You may also need to submit a crash report to the Department of Transportation.

If you intend to challenge those responsible, or make a claim on your insurance, you could benefit from the support of an attorney. He or she can help you pursue the compensation and justice you deserve.
