Here is a brief list of things you must do following an accident to ensure a smooth handling of your case:
1: Immediately seek medical attention if you are injured. If you do not have a Doctor of your own, I can help arrange an appointment for you.
2: Make sure the police are at the scene in order to document the accident; ask them to file a police report.
3: Exchange ALL information with the other driver. In particular, ask to copy the information on their driver’s license and copy their insurance information.
4: Take down the names and numbers of any witnesses to the accident. Often, an independent witness will the the “key” to the case.
5: Take photos of the scene of the accident and of all the cars involved.
