Check to make sure the other people involved in the car accident are ok. If they need emergency services, call immediately. Exchange information with the all other drivers involved in the motor vehicle accident.

Call the police and report the auto accident. In some instances, the police will only come to the scene of an auto accident if there are injuries. Having a police officer document an accident can help your case tremendously.

It is important to document your injuries and the damage to all involved vehicles by taking photographs or videos of your personal injuries and the accident scene. These photographs or videos could mean the difference between a good and bad outcome.
