Auto Accident Houston

What do I do if I’ve been in an accident?

If you have had the misfortune of being in an auto accident, there are a few steps that will help you minimize your stress and discomfort:

  • Once it is safe to do so, move all involved vehicles out of traffic.
  • Make sure that the ignition is turned off on all vehicles involved.
  • Look around to see if anyone is injured or needs medical assistance.
    Try to avoid moving any injured motorists as it might worsen the injury.
  • Dial 911 for any injured accident members.
  • Gather names of all the individuals involved in the accident and any witnesses.
  • Attempt to draw a diagram of where the vehicles were and direction of travel, along with the date and time of the accident.
  • Be cautious not to discuss any “fault” about the accident to anyone but the police.
  • Exchange insurance information and notify your insurance company immediately.
