What basic first steps should I take after a car accident?

The following are the basic first steps that you should take after a car accident:

  • Stay at the accident scene.
  • Call the police, even in a minor accident.
  • Exchange names, contact numbers, addresses and other basic information with the other driver.
  • Talk to people who witnessed the accident.
  • Inform your insurance company about the accident.
  • Keep a detailed record of all your medical treatment.
  • Take photographs of the accident scene.
  • Do not discuss the accident with anyone other than your lawyer, your insurance company and the police.
  • If you are offered a settlement from an insurance company, do not accept it and consult with an attorney.
