WHAT TO DO FOLLOWING AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT
By: Barry L. Edzant, Esq.
Make no mistake about it - automobile accidents, even minor ones, are traumatic events. Immediately following an accident, you will be nervous, scared, confused, and upset, along with a whole host of other emotions. You probably will not be thinking clearly as you quickly try to cope with the situation.

But what YOU do at the scene of the accident can often be instrumental toward a fair and just resolution of your case. Assuming you are not seriously injured and do not require immediate medical attention, you should try to achieve the following after an accident:
* Name, address, phone numbers of all parties and passengers.
Take Pictures. You should ALWAYS carry a disposable camera (with a flash) in your vehicle. Photograph all vehicles and objects involved, the streets, debris, and if possible, the parties.
Note unrelated damage to the other vehicles (damage NOT caused by the accident.)
Note possible obstructions to the other vehicles such as window tinting, large boxes in the bed of a pick-up, broken mirrors, etc.
Statistically, one of these days you will be involved in an automobile accident. Following these simple rules can help reduce your anxieties and concerns.
