What to do After a Car Accident

When you’re in a car crash, it can be very jarring. This goes double for older drivers, who might have a harder time keeping their cool following a crash. Keeping a mental checklist in mind is important so you can run down what to do after a bad crash. Here are some of our top tips on what to do following a car accident.

Car Accident Tips

Assess the Situation

Check on any passengers in your car. Is everyone okay? Once you’ve ascertained everyone’s status, check the car. Is there are smoke coming from the engine? Are you still in the middle of heavy traffic? Can you move the car out of the way of traffic? Take a few quick pictures of the crash and then move the cars if it’s safe to do so.

If Someone is Hurt

If someone in the car is hurt, call 911, turn on the car’s hazards and don’t move the person. Wait for emergency services to show up to help the person. There’s nothing you can do to help them right away unless you’re a trained medical professional aside from call emergency services and not moving them.

Talking to the Other Party

Try to keep your cool. It’s called a car accident for a reason: it was an accident. Exchange information with the other party and make sure everyone is okay. It’s not time to discuss who was at fault, that can all be figured out later. Immediately following the crash, just keep your cool and keep the conversation constructive.

Record what Happened

Take pictures of the accident, the cars, the surrounding and the other party’s driver’s license and insurance. Write down your exact account of what happened so the details don’t get fuzzy. Make sure you record everything so you have concrete evidence to check back with. Make sure you call your insurance company and get all of this info to them, as well.

Remember: it’s up to the insurance companies and lawyers to figure out who was at-fault and all of the fallout. Just do your part to make sure what happened is clear and can be easily understood and shown to any adjusters or police.
