What Should I Do If I Am Involved In A Car Accident?

  • The first thing you should do is check to see if anyone is injured.
  • Call 911 if needed.
  • Notify the police to file an accident report.
  • Notify your company or agent if necessary.
  • Find your automobile policy and read it to be prepared for questions.
  • Merely exchange insurance information with the other driver ­ DO NOT argue over the facts of the accident.
