    What should you do after a road accident?

    • Stop the car. Leaving the scene of an accident is against the law especially if anyone is hurt, or an animal has been injured or killed or if there is damage to vehicles or property.
    • Stay calm. Compose yourself. A full range of emotions may go through your body: shock, anger, sadness. Do not lose your temper.
    • If anyone needs medical assistance call 999 and talk to the emergency services
    • Assess the damage. Take photos, draw a sketch. You’ll need to remember details in the future if you are making a claim for compensation. Take witness details.

    Exchange details

    If someone involved in the accident asks for your contact details you are legally required to provide them. You should record name, address, telephone number, registration number and insurance details of the other drivers involved. You can then contact them about claiming insurance.

    Inform the police

    If for some reason you cannot swap details with the other driver at the scene, or someone is injured or the other person has no insurance then do report the accident within 24 hours to the police.

    Fortunately if the other party does drive off, the owner of a car can be traced by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in England, Wales and Scotland. This is especially useful if they refuse to give their contact details at the scene of an accident.
