If someone is injured, refrain from apologizing for their pain. While it’s okay to talk to everyone and provide assistance as needed, do not admit fault in any way until discussing the case with skilled accident lawyers.

2. Take Photos At The Scene

If none of the vehicles involved were totaled, you may want to get in your car and drive away after talking to the police and exchanging contact information. However, it is crucial to take photographs at the scene. These photographs will serve as tangible evidence of the circumstances surrounding the collision and may help build your personal injury case.

3. Stay Calm

Getting in a car accident can be frightening even if the collision is minor, and the stress does not dissipate when you leave the scene. Throughout all of your proceedings, make an effort to remain calm and rational. Your attorney will serve as a voice of reason when you need one the most, but it is in your best interests to stay as calm as possible until the case is settled.
