What Should I do After a Car Accident?

You should take the following steps if you are involved in a car accident:

  • Call the police
  • Exchange information
  • Talk to witnesses
  • Contact your insurance company
  • Take pictures
  • Get property damage valuations
  • Document your medical treatment
  • Don’t apologize to anyone

Actions that might reduce a driver’s liability include:

  • Remaining at the scene of the accident
  • Assessing all drivers and passengers for injuries
  • Exercising caution when talking to others about the accident

How Do I Prove Fault?

Insurance companies will use a number of different factors to asses your accident damages and determine which party is liable for the collision. Things that factor into an insurance adjustor’s decision includes:

  • The police officer's report of the incident
  • State and local traffic laws
  • The type of accident (i.e. head-on collision, rear-end collision, side-swipe collision, etc.)

When an officer responds to the scene of the accident, they will usually write and file an incident report. This report will include observations about the scene and whether anyone involved in the accident was issued a ticket for a traffic or safety violation. Having a police report can serve as a strong form of evidence that can help you prove your version of the events that contributed to the accident.

You should obtain a copy of the accident report to check it for any errors. Factual errors can be corrected as long as you have credible evidence that shows the officer made a mistake in their reporting. Although other errors that involve an officer's opinion can be more difficult to have removed or changed, it is possible to have your statement added to the record.
