What to do after you’ve been in an accident

If you don’t have a place to write down information, use your phone’s camera to take pictures of the other parties:

  • License
  • Registration
  • License plate
  • Proof of insurance
  • Vehicle / Damage / Scene

Call 911 if anyone is injured.

  • Get names, addresses, phone numbers, makes of vehicles, and license numbers of all other drivers, passengers, and witnesses.
  • Get all other drivers’ insurance information (company, policy number, and contact info).
  • Carefully examine damage to other vehicles.
  • Do not admit fault.
  • Call the police if there are injuries or if the other party(s) are uncooperative.
  • Take photos of the accident location and the vehicles involved.
  • Only discuss the accident with the police or with your insurance representative.
  • Notify your insurance provider immediately.
