What Happens After a Car Accident?

There’s a lot going on during the first few minutes after an accident. At Castle Hills Motors in Lewisville, TX, we advise you to remain calm and collect as much information as possible. Don’t admit fault, either. Simply collect the necessary information and notify the authorities.

If there are injuries, call 911. Otherwise, report the accident to the non-emergency police line. Depending upon the extent of the crash, a police officer may be dispatched. You will want to share information with the other driver, including getting their name, phone number, and insurance policy information.

Take photos of the road as well as the vehicles. You may need to move vehicles so that they are safely on the side of the road before you begin exchanging information or waiting for a police officer. However, photos can help to paint the picture of what happened later on.
