    1. Call 911 – Report the crash to the police and get immediate medical assistance for yourself and others injured. Please be aware it is critical that you visit a doctor for an evaluation after any serious accident even if no immediate pain is present.

    2. Exchange contact information – Make a record of the other drivers involved in the crash. Record their driver’s license and license plate number, as well as the name of their auto insurance company and policy number.

    3. Identify witnesses – Obtain names, addresses, and phone numbers of any individuals which might have witnessed the accident.

    4. Take photographs – Take cell phone pictures or video at the scene of the accident if possible, including the property damage to all vehicles involved.

    5. Do not discuss – It’s important not to provide any statements on the internet or otherwise and allow your attorneys to conduct a thorough investigation. Your insurance company should be notified of the accident. However, do not provide a written or recorded statement. Do not admit fault. Do not agree to any settlement. Say nothing except to your attorney or your doctor until the case is properly and fully resolved. If you get calls from other parties, including the other driver’s insurance company, refer them to us.
