What to Do at the Scene of an Accident
There are some vital steps you should do at the scene immediately after a car accident to make sure everyone remains safe. These are:
- assessing injuries;
- keeping injured people still and warm by covering them with a blanket, jacket, shirt, etc.;
- calling law enforcement to report the severity of injuries; and
- preserving the accident scene by turning on your hazards, setting up flares and moving your car off the road, if possible and necessary.
Once the accident scene has been stabilized, you're ready to move ahead to get your life back in order. Now it's time to start gathering information for your insurance claim.
