Q. What should I do if I’m in a car accident?
The first thing you should do is pull off the road as soon as possible, if you can do so safely. Once you’re safely off the road:
- Notify the police if anyone has been injured or damage to both vehicles is more than $2,000. That’s the combined damage, so it doesn’t take a lot to get to that level
- Take photos of the damage to your vehicle and any other damage caused by the accident
- Take the contact information of the other driver(s) including drivers license and insurance information
- Take contact information of any witnesses
- Don’t admit fault. Let the authorities determine fault
