When car accidents happen, it can be quite hectic at the scene of the accident.  It is important to stay calm and remember to do the 5 following things:

Take Pictures

Pictures speak a thousand words.  Take pictures of all of the vehicles and the scene of the accident.


Eyewitnesses are essential to prove your claim.  Make sure you get the names and contact information of all the witnesses.

Call The Police

Always report any accident by calling 911.  Many police officers are trained in accident reconstruction.  By conducting an investigation at the scene and completing an Accident Report, police officers can help establish liability.

Do Not Discuss The Accident

Never engage the other driver about the accident.  Do not argue about the accident. Stay calm and wait for the police to arrive.
