Do's and Don'ts After an Auto Accident:


DO seek proper medical attention before doing anything else.
DO summon the police.
DO cooperate with all law enforcement and emergency personnel who respond to the scene.
DO get the license plate numbers of all other vehicles involved in car accidents and the drivers' names, addresses, telephone numbers, and insurance information.
DO write down the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all potential witnesses to any accident or injury.
DO contact your automobile insurance.
DO take photographs of all of the following, as applicable, as soon as possible after the accident:
- scene of the accident, from all angles.
- The surrounding area.
- Your injuries.
- Any property damage.
DO contact an experienced accident and injury attorney.


DON'T move your vehicle after an automobile accident, unless necessary for safety or required by law.
DON'T leave the scene of an accident until the police tell you it is okay to do so.
DON'T throw away any potential evidence in the case, such as defective products, important documents, or torn or blood-stained clothing.
DON'T engage in discussions of fault with anyone, and make sure you don't apologize for anything --doing so can be considered evidence that you may have been legally at fault.
DON'T agree to settlement terms without discussing the matter with your attorney
