Steps to take after a crash in West Palm Beach

After a car accident, it is important to take immediate steps to ensure your safety and protect your rights.

  • Contact emergency services: First and foremost, ensure everyone’s safety by calling emergency services so those involved can receive medical assistance. Having law enforcement at the scene is also crucial to document the accident and create an official report.
  • Get to a safe spot: If possible, move to a safe location near or at the scene of the accident to avoid further harm. Turn on your hazard lights to alert other drivers, but don’t leave the scene (unless necessary to seek emergency medical attention).
  • Get contact information: Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver(s) involved in the accident. Obtain names, phone numbers, addresses, driver’s license numbers, and insurance policy details. Other than that, refrain from discussing the accident.
  • Take pictures: Document the scene of the accident by taking photos of the vehicles involved, the damage sustained, any visible injuries, road conditions, and traffic signs. These photos can be crucial evidence for insurance claims and potential future legal action.
  • Contact insurance company: Notify your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible, but be careful. Stick to the facts of what happened and don’t say anything about fault for the accident. If you feel uncomfortable or worried about speaking with them, a car accident attorney may do so on your behalf.
