What Should I Do After An Auto Accident?

After an auto accident, regardless of who is at fault, among the first things you should do is call 911. Depending on the circumstances, the dispatcher may send a police officer to the scene of the accident as well as an ambulance, with medical professionals who will tend to any individuals injured in the collision.

Next, you should get the other driver’s address, phone number, and insurance information so that you can make a claim if necessary. In the event that you suffer serious harm in the accident, you may need the help of an auto accident attorney to pursue additional financial compensation.
