Steps To Take After A Car Wreck

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by confusion and shock after a car accident, even when injuries are minor. Knowing what to do can help you control the damage and put you in a position to get the best possible outcome. If you have serious injuries, seek immediate medical assistance. Nothing is more important than your health.

If you do not need emergency treatment, take the following steps:

  • Check on all passengers.
  • File a police report.
  • Exchange contact and insurance information.
  • Talk to witnesses at the scene.
  • Take pictures of vehicular damage.
  • Keep track of all medical treatment.

You should also notify your insurance company of the accident and obtain a property damage valuation. Be wary, however, of any early settlement offers. Never settle a claim until you know you will receive full compensation for all injuries.
