What are the first steps following a car accident?

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. Posted in Car Accidents on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

Philadelphia residents who have been in a car accident know about the possible confusion that can result in following a crash. Yet, many may not know what to do after such an accident occurs. There are often many things rushing through the minds of car accident victims. Sometimes, these victims may experience shock, and this shock might leave them in a state where it is difficult to take action. This is why it is often helpful to know what post-wreck actions are appropriate before a car accident occurs.

Just what actions should one take following a car accident? One thing all car accident victims should do is stay on the scene. Fleeing the scene of the crash may result in the victim being charged with a crime. What’s more, those involved in car accidents should check to make sure all other drivers and passengers are okay. Some may require medical attention and it is important that these victims get the help they need right away.

If there are any serious physical injuries suffered by either party or if there are significant vehicle damages, then it is important that the police become involved. Calling the police as soon as possible can be important. After, it is often necessary for the parties involved in the wreck to exchange information. This includes names, numbers, drivers’ license numbers and insurance information, all of which may be necessary when taking legal action later. It is often extremely helpful to speak to any witnesses, too.

After the immediate first steps following car accidents, victims may find themselves once again at a loss as to what to do next. Thankfully, attorneys are available to help guide victims through the next phase of sorting out the aftermath of a car accident and possibly holding a negligent driver responsible.
