What to do after a road accident
First of all if someone has been hurt, call the police and an ambulance. You will need to keep a firm grip on your emotions and not hit out at the other driver, even though the accident was their fault. This would be construed as assault in a court of law. Take photos of the scene with a camera or your mobile phone camera. This will help in any compensation claim.
Make a note of the weather conditions at the time of the accident, the lighting, time and date of the accident and who was injured. You should exchange insurance details with the other driver(s) and make a note of all passengers and the make, model and registration number of the other vehicle. Take names, addresses and contact numbers of any witnesses and the registration numbers of their vehicles too so that they could be traced at a later date.
If you collide with an animal and the animal is still alive, call the police so that a vet can be called. Injured animals are dangerous so it is best for you not to try to move the animal. If you hit a farm animal this must be reported to the police who will contact the owner.
