What to do if you are in a car accident:
1. Don't leave the scene of the accident. Leaving the scene is a crime and you may be subject to prosecution. After an impact, try not to move your vehicles until the police arrive in order to allow the policeman to survey the scene and to ensure that evidence regarding how the accident occurred is preserved. If your vehicles are obstructing the flow of traffic, try to move your vehicle the shortest distance possible from the place of impact without obstructing further traffic. Remain at the scene of the accident and have others who have witnessed the occurrence immediately contact the police. If you are injured, do not exit your vehicle.
2. When you have been the victim of someone else's lack of care in operating their automobile, it is important that you contact the local police department immediately in order to preserve your rights. Do not allow the other operator to confidence you that this should be "handled among ourselves". Calling the police department is especially important step if you feel any pain or injury as a result of the accident. Remember, if there is a lawsuit latter on, your counterpart in the accident may have a completely different story when the matter reaches court than the one that he or she tells you at the scene of the accident.
3. Many people, even when they feel pain, will refuse medical attention at the scene and travel home. Then, after several hours of increasing pain, they will finally go to the hospital and present themselves at the emergency room. When their case reaches court, this delay in seeking medical attention is often used against them as a weapon to prove that the accident did not cause the injury. If you feel pain at an accident scene and an ambulance is offered, utilize the ambulance services to go immediately to the closest emergency room.
