If you are involved in a minor road traffic accident, it is important to remain as calm as possible. You will need to have a clear head in order to deal with the situation, and to make sure that you do not leave the scene without making a note of the following:
- The date, time and location of the accident
- The names and contact details of anyone who was involved in the accident
- The license number of their vehicles
- Names and phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident
- The name of any police officers that attended
It might also be helpful to take a few photographs of the scene of the collision, in case there is a dispute over responsibility at a later date.
Even if you do not think you have been injured, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. You might have sustained a whiplash injury, or another medical condition that is not immediately obvious.
