Being in a vehicle accident in Atlanta is terrifying. Even if you aren’t seriously hurt, you may still be in a dazed state of shock.
You may not be able to prevent an accident if another driver is at fault. But with this list of instructions in mind, you’ll be prepared to make the right decisions in the moments after a car crash and fight for the justice you deserve.
Make Sure Everyone Is Safe
Everyone who can move should exit the vehicle and get to safety away from oncoming traffic. Don’t move someone who’s unconscious or has a neck or back injury unless they are in a dangerous place, like a burning vehicle.
Call the Police
If no one has by now, call the police right away.
Exchange Information with the Other Driver
You and the other driver should have each other’s:
● Driver’s license number
● Vehicle license plate number
● Name, address, and phone number
● Insurance information
Take Pictures and Document All You Possibly Can
Take pictures and write down as much as you can about the accident. Talk with witnesses who saw the incident and get their contact information. All of this will help your case later on when recovering damages. Save records from your medical treatment related to the accident. Document how the accident has affected your ability to earn money.
