The shock and other emotions of a car accident can jolt your brain and cause you to forget things that NEED to take place at the scene of an accident. These things include:
setting your hazard lights

  • calling the police
  • being polite and never admitting fault
  • taking photos and notes of the description of each car involved
  • recording the other license plate number
  • exchanging information with the other driver (name, address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver’s license number & license plate number)
  • and more
