1. Check on everyone’s condition. If someone is injured and needs medical attention, call 911 as soon as possible and request medical assistance.
2. Get a police report. Whether your accident is minor or severe, you need to call the police for a report. Your insurance company will ask for the report, because they need to know as much about the incident as possible.
3. Do not admit fault. Admitting legal liability can come in the form of two words: “I’m sorry.” As much as you feel like you played a role in the accident, it’s up to the insurance company and the courts to decide after further evaluation of the incident.
