The immediate aftermath of a serious accident or injury can leave victims shaken and overwhelmed. However, it is important to keep several things in mind after an accident has occurred.

First, the incident should be reported to the police. Never admit fault when talking to police, others involved in the incident or anyone else. Do not speculate about how the incident happened or why, as tempting as that may be. Instead, just state the facts as clearly as you can. The disorienting nature of an accident can lead some victims to assume responsibility, even when it belongs on another’s shoulders.

If possible, take photos of everything related to the incident, such as your damaged car, visible injuries and other damaged property. These photos can be important later in reaching a settlement with insurance companies or in court. In addition, make sure to retain a copy of the police report for your records.
