Personal Injury Claim Center | What to do Immediately After an Accident

If you were involved in an accident, you should do the following:

Personal Injury Information Center
  • Set out flares, reflectors, or turn on your flasher lights
  • Call for immediate medical attention or help for anyone injured
  • Notify law enforcement (state or local police) to establish an incident report.  If you are out of town or the country when an accident occurs, notify local law enforcement, auto rental company, hotel manager, park manager or ship’s captain
  • Do not admit fault or make any statement about the accident to anyone except the police
  • Promptly notify your insurance company of the loss or damage
  • Seek representation on your behalf as soon as possible; for your attorney consultation, we recommend having the following information:
    1. Date, location, and the approximate time of the accident
    2. Copy of the accident report, if available
    3. Names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses or parties to the accident, including any injured persons
    4. Photos of the accident and/or your damaged vehicle
    5. Copies of diagnosis and medical bills incurred
  • Do not speak with a special investigator who is not employed by your insurance company on your behalf, without the advice of your attorney
