According to the National
Safety Council, one in every eight drivers will be involved in a motor
vehicle accident this year. That may mean you! Are you prepared? Would
you know what to do and what questions to ask?
Here is a list of
things to remember, as compiled by the National Safety Council:
Stop your vehicle
if it is clear, safe and legal.
Move the vehicle
out of the traveled roadway, if it is clear, safe and legal. (In some states
it is against the law to move the vehicle from the place where the accident
occurred. Check the ordinance in your area.)
Turn off the ignitions
of the cars involved.
Make a first aid
check of all persons involved in the accident.
Call the police
and, if necessary, emergency medical services.
Mark the scene of
the accident with flares or retro reflective triangles.
Gather the names*
of all persons in the motor vehicles and people who witnessed the accident.
Make a quick diagram
of where the vehicle occupants were seated and indicate the vehicles' direction
of travel and lane. Also note the date, time and weather conditions.
Ask to see the other
driver's license* and write down the number.
company information. DO NOT discuss "fault" or make statements about
the accident to anyone but the police.
Get a copy of the
police report of the accident from the local precinct.
