Immediately Following an Accident/Motor Vehicle Collision

Posted Monday, March 05, 2018 by Ed Harper

Here is our attorney-approved, easy-to-remember list for what to do immediately following an accident:

  1. Protect: Keep yourself safe. Then, if able, determine if anyone else is injured or needing medical attention.

  2. Call 911 to report the collision and obtain the assistance of first responders.

  3. Document: Obtain all necessary information: Take property damage pictures of all vehicles involved, all insurance information, witness names, vehicle and driver’s licenses and registration.

  4. Move: When there is no further danger, get the permission of policemen or first responders at the scene, and move your vehicle.

  5. Get Checked: Schedule an appointment to have all your injuries examined by a professional. Even minor injuries must be treated after an accident.

  6. Contact: Seek legal counsel regarding your accident, preferably by contacting Harper Law. Legal counsel is imperative to successfully bringing a personal injury or property damage claim. Finally, contact your insurance provider for further assistance.
