If you ever find yourself in a car accident, the first and most important thing to do is to call 911 and get medical help. Your health should be your top priority in any kind of accident. If you cannot contact 911, ask someone else to do so if there are witnesses around.

After you have sought medical help, the next four vital steps are to exchange insurance information, collect evidence from the scene, file a police report, and finally, contact a trusted and experienced car accident law firm like Joshua E. Palmer Law to get your damages covered.

Exchange Information

Almost every state in the U.S. requires car owners to have valid liability insurance on their vehicle, even to register it. Make sure you exchange insurance information with every vehicle involved to make sure the proper companies are being called and to see if the other person also has insurance.

Be sure to take close-up pictures of the damage and wide-angle pictures with landmarks and street signs that help to identify the location. Take pictures of your injuries as well. If you cannot take pictures of your injuries yourself, make sure to have someone help you.
