Road Traffic Accidents: Do’s And Don’ts

Road traffic accidents occur all-too frequently. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that in 2009, more than 2.3 million adult passengers and drivers received emergency treatment due to injuries received in a motor vehicle crash.

If you are injured in an auto accident, by taking the following simple measures, you can help maximize your chances of recovery in a claim.

DOs

  • Call the police and obtain a copy of the report.
  • Seek medical treatment and get a copy of the medical report — for severe injuries, you may need urgent medical care, but even if your injuries appear to be minor, you should make a note of your symptoms and see a doctor as soon as you can.
  • Take lots of photos of the accident site — your cell phone camera is sufficient.
  • Exchange insurance information and contact details with other drivers involved in the accident.
  • Take down contact details for any witnesses.
  • Make a note of what happened while your memory is still fresh.
  • Report the accident to your insurer.
  • Keep a record of any time you need to take off work.
  • Keep relevant invoices or receipts.
