When you find yourself in an accident don’t let panic get the best of you. First things first, call 911 and get medical help for yourself and anyone else who is injured. Make sure to let the 911 operator know the location of the accident so they can ensure that they are sending the ambulance and police to the correct area with no delays.
When speaking to medical providers at the scene of the accident, speak to all of your injuries no matter how minor. Some injuries get worse over time. You do not want anyone saying that you did not sustain an injury in the accident because you did not tell anyone about it.
If possible, you should take photos of the accident scene. Majority of cell phones nowadays have cameras and some have video capability.
