What to do after an auto accident:

  1. Immediately following your automobile accident, whether you are a pedestrian who was hit by a car, a bicyclist, driver and/or passenger involved in an auto accident, you should contact the police.
  2. If you have been injured, you should contact appropriate medical personnel immediately.
  3. DO NOT sign any agreement, admit to fault or provide any statements to an insurance adjustor who may show up at the accident scene. The time period immediately following an accident leaves victims vulnerable, and during this time, victims are likely to provide inaccurate statements due to injury, confusion or stress that the accident has caused. 
  4. Call your insurance company as soon as possible to report the accident. It is very important that you do this so that your insurance company can begin to pay any bills related to the accident. Failure to file a report with your insurance company could mean a loss of claim money related to your accident.
