No matter how careful you are, there’s always a possibility of getting into an accident. If you’re involved in an accident, there are several steps you should always take to handle the situation.
Check on Passengers and Pedestrians
If you are OK to move, the first thing to do is check on the other drivers, passengers, and any pedestrians that were involved. Call an ambulance if there is an injury.
Move Out of Traffic
If there are no serious injuries, then everyone involved should move to a safe location away from traffic. If the vehicles are drivable, move them out of the way, too. But make sure to document the accident with photos before doing so.
Call the Police
Police should be called to any accident, even minor ones, so that the accident can be reported.
All drivers should trade information, including insurance information, names, and contact information.
