Seek medical treatment. Even if you don’t have any visible injuries, you could have a concussion or other serious injuries that need medical care.
Contact the police. The police will create an accident report that can help support a car accident claim.
Gather evidence and contact information. Take pictures of the scene of the accident, gather contact information from the parties involved and any witnesses, ask for the other driver’s license information, license plate number, and make and model of the vehicle.
Document your injuries. Make sure you save all medical records from your injuries.
Don’t post on social media. Avoid posting anything related to your accident on social media, even something innocent could be misinterpreted and affect your case.
