First, get medical attention to those who may need it.

Next, call the authorities.

Then, you should get as much information as possible from the other driver and occupants, including:

  • Contact information (address, cell phone number(s), email addresses)
  • Driver license information (state of issuance and license number)
  • Vehicle information (make and model)
  • Insurance information (name of company, phone number and policy number)

You should also get the names and contact information of any witnesses.

Use your cell phone to take pictures of the car accident from several different angles.

Get the names and badge numbers of the law enforcement officers when they arrive and ask them for a statement about what they observed.

Take notes about the time of the accident, the weather conditions, landmarks and more.

Finally, contact the experienced auto accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Thaddeus M. Bond, Jr. & Associates, P.C. if you were injured.
