    Suffered an auto injury in the UK – 5 Key things to do after a car accident

    We all hope it will never happen to us, but if you are involved in a car accident, there are 5 key things to do in the immediate aftermath of a car accident, however severe or minor it may be.

    Check nobody is hurt

    The most important thing to do first of all is to establish if anyone in a vehicle or on the pavement has been hurt. People are far more important than cars and should be the first priority. If you think medical attention may be required, call 999 immediately.

    Get safe

    If you are uninjured but your car is blocking the road or causing an obstruction somehow, get out of your car and stand clear of the accident site to exchange details with the other driver. If there is a lot of damage to the cars or property such as lampposts or garden walls, it is wise to call the Police on the non-emergency number and ask them to attend.

    Take photos

    A car accident is a traumatic event and you may find it hard to recall details after you are back home. Take pictures of the accident using your phone from a variety of angles showing where the cars ended up and to give a general indication of the road conditions such as ice or fog. Photographs do not have to be professional quality but just need to be clear enough to tell the story of what happened.

    Exchange details

    Speak to the other drivers involved in the accident and get their names, addresses, registration number of their vehicles and details of their insurer if possible. Phone numbers are also useful. If drivers refuse to give details, ask the Police to intervene.
