- Leave the scene. The very worst thing you can do after an accident, whether you have caused it or not, is to leave the scene. If you were to blame for the accident then you may actually get into legal trouble for leaving the scene. If you were not then you won’t be able to get the information you need to file an insurance claim or make a compensation claim if you have left the scene right away. In all cases, assume that your leaving will be considered illegal or an admittance of guilt.
- Avoid the police. If you were to blame for your accident then you may not want to get the police involved. However, the police must be involved in every accident, no matter how minor. Even if you don’t involved the police at the scene, they need to be involved later on so it is worth your while to just call them there and then.
- Get into an argument. The worst thing you can do is to behave in an aggressive manner with the other driver at the scene of your accident. This can lead to you being arrested or can lead to a physical fight in which you may cause injuries which could lead to your arrest.
