At the Accident Scene

  1. Call the police.
  2. If anyone appears to be injured:
    - Call paramedics or an ambulance, or arrange for appropriate transportation to a hospital or doctor.
    - Tell the investigating police officer about the injuries.
    - Cooperate fully with the doctor and medical staff.
  3. Unless your vehicle is creating the potential for another accident, do not move it or the accident debris until you are instructed to do so by the investigating police officer. For minor accidents on freeways and interstate highways, immediately move all vehicles to the shoulder of the road.
  4. Do not discuss the accident with anyone other than the investigating police officer, your doctors, your own insurance representatives and your lawyer.
  5. Make note of any statements made by the driver(s) or occupants of the other vehicle(s) as to how the accident occurred.
  6. Get the name, address, telephone number(s) and automobile insurance information from the driver(s) of the other vehicle(s).
  7. Get the names, addresses and telephone numbers of any witnesses to the accident.
  8. If there is visible damage to any of the vehicles and you have a camera, photograph them.
  9. If you believe the driver(s) of the other vehicle(s) may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, tell this to the investigating police officer.
