Top 5 Things to Do Right After an Accident

Any vehicle accident is traumatic to some degree. When involved in an accident, you take into account the following:

  • Medical attention. Seek immediate medical attention if injured and if people in other vehicles are injured, also call 911 and try to keep them as comfortable as possible without moving them.
  • Police. Both North Carolina and Virginia law require any driver involved in an accident where another person is killed, injured or where property damage occurs to stop at the accident scene and report the accident to the police.
  • Legal precautions. Do not make any statements about fault or liability, and contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Your lawyer can also advise you about making statements to your and other parties’ insurance companies.
  • Information. In addition to giving the police your name, address, license number, vehicle registration number and insurance policy information, you should also exchange this information with other parties involved in the accident.
  • Evidence. If possible, take photos of the accident scene, cars, injuries, etc. Take notes of what occurred and get the names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident.

When driving in North Carolina, Virginia or any state where you are in a motor vehicle collision, you should assume the accident is a legal matter.
