What to Do After a Car Accident: Simple Steps

Some examples of minor vehicle accidents include small fender-benders or minor collisions. Here are a few steps to take in the event of a minor vehicle accident near Palm Coast and Deland: 

  1. In the case of minor accidents, first, check to see if you or others need medical care. If so, call 911 immediately. 
  2. In the case of minor accidents, if you are stable, move your car to a safe area. Don’t stray far from the accident scene, but you also don’t want to block traffic. 
  3. Contact the police. In a major accident, you’ll want to call 911 before doing anything else. Even if others suggest that police aren’t needed, you’ll still want to contact the police. It’s best to obtain official documentation, and your insurance may require such reports. 
  4. Exchange contact details. Exchange contact and insurance policy information for all involved. You’ll also want to obtain contact information for any accident witnesses. 
  5. Document all damage. Take photos both of the damage to other vehicles and to your car, as well as the scene of the accident. 
  6. Call your insurance provider. Quickly inform your provider of the accident details so that the claim process can start as soon as possible. 
  7. Follow up with your doctor. Should you need a physician after the accident and after your initial emergency treatment, you’ll want to visit your regular doctor for more assistance.
