Steps to take after an accident
If you have had a serious accident then the first couple of days will be a blur, dealing with any injuries you have sustained, speaking to the police and coming to terms with what happened. After the first few days have passed, though, it is time to start thinking about the practical issues involved with having an accident. You will want to get your life back to normal as soon as you can, so that you can start to move forward, and here are some of the steps you can take.
Contact your insurer
One of the first things you should do after an accident is to contact your insurer and let them know that you have had an accident, what the damage is and who the accident was the fault of. You will need to contact your insurer anyway to let them know if an accident was your fault, as another driver will be making a claim on your insurance, but you should let them know either way to keep your records up to date. Speaking to your insurer quickly will also help you to get your car fixed right away.

Speak to your employer
You will want to let your employer know as soon as possible what has happened, how badly injured you are and how long it may take for you to come back to work. It is important that your employer has this information so that they can put back-up plans into place and start processing your sick leave and sick pay. It will also keep you in their good books as you won’t have left them hanging for some time.
Speak to your doctor
Even if your injuries have been dealt with, speaking to your doctor will help you to get the medical care you need in the weeks and months that follow your injury, ensure that you can always get repeat prescriptions and that you are put forward for counselling if you feel that you need it.
