What to do if you are in an accident
Stay calm. It is most important that you check that you are safe and then try to remain calm whatever else is going on. If everyone panics then no one will do what needs to be done and the accident scene can provide further dangers. Take a moment to breathe and take stock of the situation before you do anything else.
Make the area safe. If you are unharmed or not badly injured then it is up to you to make the scene as safe as possible so no further accidents occur. Turn off your engine and put on your hazard lights. Get people to help you warn oncoming traffic until the emergency services arrive.
Get witnesses. You are going to have a better case for compensation if there are witnesses willing to speak for you. Ask around if anyone saw what happened and get their details so that you or Accident Advice Helpline can contact them in future.
Exchange details. If this is possible at the scene then make sure you do this with the other driver or drivers involved. You will need these details for insurance purposes anyway, but it will also move your compensation claim along much faster if you are able to give full details of the other parties involved.
Make notes. As soon as you are away from the scene, sit down and make notes about everything you can remember. This will be a great help to you when you are making your claim for compensation.
