What Should I Do After A Car Accident?
At McGee Solicitors, we understand that the moments after a car accident can be a blur and people are often unsure as to their responsibilities.
We have therefore devised a simple 4 step guide to ensure that you keep yourself right in the event of an accident.
- Stop and Remain at the Scene
It is important that you stop and exchange details with the other driver such as name, address and insurance details.
- Evaluate the Extent of the Damage
Before assessing the damage to the vehicles, it is very important that you firstly check on the safety of everyone involved in the accident and call an Ambulance if necessary.
Once this is taken care of, you should evaluate the damage sustained to the vehicles. Take photos of the damage to the vehicles if possible.
It is important that you do not admit fault unnecessarily at the scene of the accident.
- Contact the Police
Call the Police from the scene and log the accident with them. They may or may not attend the scene. This usually depends on the seriousness of the accident. In any event it is important that you obtain the Police Reference Number for the incident. If the Police are not contacted at the scene, it is important that they are called and advised of the accident at the earliest opportunity.
