What should you do at a car accident or a car accident scene? First stop. Never leave the scene. Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime in most states. Call the police. Check yourself, check your passengers. Grab your cell phone, step out of your car, as you check on the other people turn your video on so you are recording, you want to record pictures of the automobile and the placement – how they are set up on the road – one behind the other – to the side you want to get copies of the skidmarks too. This is particularly important if you have to remove your car from the roadway. Lots of states say move your car to the side of the road if you have an accident. You also want to record any conversations with the driver who is at fault. A lot of times they will admit their at fault, say their at fault and then when the police get there they will lie and say something else. Happens all the time. If you go ahead and flip your phone to video mode, instead of picture mode, you can capture all of this. Also when you get out, try to get a picture or video of the person that’s driving the other car. It’s not unusual for the driver of the car to get out and say they weren’t driving, the passenger was. The police officer would have no idea as to who was driving if you didn’t have video or other witnesses to testify as to what was going on. After you do that, get what ever medical treatment you need, do to the hospital, self transport yourself there, and then call your lawyer and your insurance company.
