What to Do after an Auto Accident
Being involved in a car accident can be a very stressful and traumatic experience. In the event of an auto accident, it is important that you take appropriate precautions to ensure that the involved parties are safe and secure and that your legal rights are protected.
- Stay calm.
- Check for injuries. Call an ambulance if anyone requires immediate medical attention.
- If possible, move the vehicles to the side of the road to clear the roadway for traffic. If need be, turn on hazard lights to warn oncoming drivers.
- Exchange pertinent information with the other parties, including insurance policy information, driver’s license information, and contact information. If possible, get contact information from witnesses as well.
- If there is any doubt as to whether or not it is prudent to contact law enforcement, it is probably best to notify the police.
- Document the accident with a camera or notepad if possible.
- Do not leave the scene until you have exchanged pertinent information with the other parties and the police.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car or auto accident, our lawyers serving Lancaster, Victorville, and Apple Valley can help ensure that the cause of your accident is thoroughly investigated.
