Safety First

• Check for injuries: The most important thing is to ensure everyone involved is okay. Call 911 immediately if there are injuries.

• Move to safety: If possible, move your car out of traffic to avoid further accidents. Turn on your hazard lights.

Securing the Scene

• Exchange information: Get the names, contact information, and insurance details of all involved drivers.

• Document the scene: Take photos of the damage to all vehicles involved, any injuries, and the surrounding area.

Don't Admit Fault
