Steps to Take After an Auto Accident

After a car accident, you may be disoriented, frightened, confused, and injured. Even though it may be difficult, there are a few important things you should try do after a car accident:

  • Call 911
  • Seek medical attention, even if your injuries do not seem to be severe
  • Exchange contact information with any other drivers involved in the accident
  • Take photographs of the accident scene: Skid marks, damage to vehicles, property damage, etc.
  • Call a personal injury attorney


Do not admit fault, and do not make any statements to your insurance company without first talking to a personal injury lawyer. An accident investigation will determine the cause of the accident — you may not be aware of all the factors that caused or contributed to your accident.
